Evenlyn was a lovey dear lady. I am so sorry for you Mandi and your dad Mike. She was the one that lined it up for us to get Mugsy dog years ago. She had Esther or I know she'd of taken this dog too. Your family always had a big heart for dogs. Mandi you have been so blessed to have this wonderful mother and Mike a loyal sweet wife. Again I say I'm very sorry. If We can do anything to help I'm not that far away. Love and prayers for God's comfort to all of you and the grandsons too. Your friend. Sandy Suders
