We were members of Best of Missouri Hands with Roy and Evelyn. We travelled together at various shows. They were some of the nicest people we have ever known. They always made us feel like family. We’d lost touch over the years but we have thought of them so often. I’m so so sorry for your loss.

Loved every Halloween at Evelyn and Roy's and all the times she let me dress up in clothes and hats at her house...always felt like a princess! Wonderful memories. You will be missed greatly! Love you all!
