Grandma Alice's funeral

Grandma Alice passed away on December 16th. She was 98! It was a blessing for her, because she had been bed ridden for 5 1/2 years and we KNOW, because of the life she led, she is now with her Heavenly Father and her Savior. She was such an wonderful influence in our lives.....WE MISS HER!!

The funeral program. I loved both these pictures, but the young one on the back of the program is especially nice. I KNOW that is how she looks now!! Bless you, mother.

Her funeral was held on December 23rd at the Garden Park Ward where she raised all her children. There were many General Authorities in attendance including President Monson who spoke. He also came to the viewing before and stayed the entire time shaking hands and talking with everyone. It was a wonderful experience for all of us.

Leaving the Church to go to the cemetery

Her grandson's as the pallbearers. How proud she was of each of them!
It was snowing hard when we left the church, but the sun actually came out when we arrived at the cemetery. I think it was a sign Grandma was happy:) It was really cold though!

Rick and all his brothers spoke at the funeral and it was very special. I know Mother Evans was pleased.
Almost ALL of her posterity were in attendance. Even Brian and Sarah from New Hampshire and Amy and Mike from Paris! She was an example to us all...may we all follow that example and someday be with her again.
