John, when I think of your Mother, Proverbs 31 describes your Mother as a Virtuous Woman;
10 A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.
11 Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it.
12 Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.
13 She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing.
14 She's like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises.
15 She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.
16 She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden.
17 First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
18 She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
19 She's skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.
20 She's quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.
21 She doesn't worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
22 She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
23 Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers.
24 She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
25 Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
26 When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly.
27 She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive.
28 Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise:
29 "Many women have done wonderful things, but you've outclassed them all!"
30 Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
31 Give her everything she deserves! Festoon her life with praises!

And one verse for you as well in this difficult time, Numbers 6:24. George and Joyce Pedri

Two world-class people are now rejoined in Heaven...never saw one without the other..over many years....they were 'the couple'...the kind of folks we all admired, respected and loved.
Sincere condolences to family and friends of Evelyn and George.

Dear John, we are very sorry to hear of your loss. Your parents were outstanding role models in our community. Just as Mr. Holden commented, you never saw one without the other. Heaven waited long enough for Evelyn to be joined to George. What a reunion that was in the presence of our Lord. Love and sympathy Bob and Carolyn Kreisel

Dear John
I send my deepest sympathy to you and your family on the recent passing of your Mother, Evelyn Cairnes. She and your father were 2 wonderful people. I guess they were not to be apart too long. It is never easy to lose a parent. I have been down that road. I still miss my parents. Dad and I used to come up to the Schooner Club Gatherings from time to time and your parents would be there. I hope your parents are reunited forever. May their souls find eternal rest. With Concerns, Ellen Hopkins

I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4)
