Evangelina was a very sweet woman, but she could also be very straight forward, something that I like about her very much. She always greeted me at church with a big smile and a hug. I will miss seeing her sitting in church by her sister, but I know she goes to a better place because she was my sister in Christ. Many blessings to all her family. Mary Gutierrez, October 2, 2014
