I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth.

Sorry for your loss. What a great guy with a always positive attitude
Kathryn Gunderson Wick left a message on April 11, 2016:
This brings sadness to me as Evan and I attended school together all 12 years, from elementary through high school. Even though we did not stay connected throughout the years, when we would see each other, it was a happy time. My thoughts and prayers go out to Evan's family, especially to his wife Bonnie, his sons, and his sister Phyllis. He was a good man and all of you were blessed to have him in your lives all these years.
