    No words can ever take away the pain of losing a Mom … and the world has truly lost a wonderful woman. She always treated me with love and I am forever grateful to have known her growing up. Thank you Momma Evelyn – you gave me one of my best friends in your daughter Linda…
    I know there has to be a Bubbling Brooks in Heaven – ps – you will probably catch my Mom and Dad there 🙂
