George, Evelyn, Dennis and Chris, my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. She has always been (and will continue to be) included in the many memories I have of our younger days growing up and attending church in Washington Park ...until we graduated and moved on. God grant you comfort and peace during this time. Love, Cathy Atkins, Richmond, VA
