    Aunt Evelyn you truly exemplified the best qualities and/or attributes that were genuine and authentic that I felt and truly experienced everytime I was in your presence. You kept it real and did not pretend or sugar coat the truth or reality. This is what I will always remember about you, when you and I had our one on one conversations whenever you visited Albany, GA. I will miss you, but will always have respect and unconditional love for you just for being you. You are one in a million. R.I.P., my favorite Auntie. Verdell Nealy, Albany, GA
