Evey - Our Own Angel
This quote from Evey's Legacy site touched us deeply this morning. Thank you Cassey for allowing us to share it.
"I know it has been a while, but Evelyn is on my mind a lot and I just wanted to offer my condolences to the family. I also want to use this to share a story about Evelyn. I used to work with her Kindergarten class, and she was the sweetest little girl I have ever met. Her smile could melt your heart. I remember one day, she and I were reading a story with a few other kids. The book was about this Caterpillar and his journey to become a butterfly. One of the kids asked me: "Why does he want to be a butterfly?" I said: "Because butterflies are beautiful." It was then that Evelyn chimed in and said: "Then why doesn't he want to be an angel? Angels are prettier and they fly higher!"
Thank you for making me smile, Evelyn. I know that you are a beautiful angel. Keep on flying!"
