    My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of sister Coralyn. My heart is breaking as I reminisce of fond memories we share. 😭😭😭😭 I can still here you calling out my name…when you felt I was doing something wrong. “Miss Evelyn! Your presence was always felt. You had an infectious laugh. Your singing was something else.
    Love you in life and we will continue to love you in death.
    Take you rest my cousin until that great getting up morning.
