    Aunt Evelyn was Mom’s best friend growing up in addition to being first cousins.
    My favorite picture is Evelyn and Dorothy posing for a picture on a Chicago street. Whenever I visited Chicago in my younger days, I would meet up with Linda (we’re the same age) as all my cousins were younger than me. I would go to Aunt Evelyn’s to meet up with Linda. Many fond memories. I’m glad I was able to visit last spring and see her enjoying the steamed Char sui bows. I’m thankful I got an opportunity to visit again last Friday as I will not be able to attend her service.
    Our condolences to all the family…
    Love you all!
    Maureen (& Frank)
