I am so appreciative to have had the opportuity to reconncet with Evie at our 50th reunion. She painted a vibrant picture of her "retirement" in Maine, and the volunteer work she was doing in the park.  Her energy and enthusiam for life was inspiring. My sincere condolences to Sam, her daughters and her family.
