Condolence & Memory Journal

Our brother Don and Ruthie started their married life in a little town called Leadmine WV and their first child Linda was born there and is resting in the Leadmine Cemetery. As Don's brothers, sisters, and now only sisters-in-law left we felt it was only fitting to give monetary gifts as a memorial to what we think of as our home church which our Grandfather Evans was instrumental in building; our mother took all of us to whenever there was a service and we all still love! It reminds us the song "Come to the church in the wildwood; the little white (brown) church in the vale! We love all of you very much and pray for your comfort and peace!
