To the family of Richard Evans. I'm Shirley Hundley (Taylor). I extend to you my deepest and heartfelt sympathy. I have not seen Richard in many years. We grew up together. His family had a dry cleaning business on the same street as my grandparents' grocery store. We were classmates, band mates, graduates of the class of 1965. May God provide you the strength you require during this time. I will keep your family in prayer.
