  • Heartfelt sympathy to the Scott-Hughes-Bass Family. It takes lots of faith for families to get through times like these, but please know that you are not grieving along. WE as friends grieve with you. Hopefully all the great memories you made with your loved one will help you suffice now and in the coming days. We, her classmates hold great memories that we can look back and laugh about the good old days at Columbia High School, Mt. Tabor Baptist Church and the Magnolia Community. We hold those memories dearly. We hope that knowing your loved one now rest in the arms of the Lord and Savior she served will allow you to be at peace. 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and be present with the Lord.” Rest in peace and love Evelyn.

  • I write this with a tear in my eye. Evelyn was a dear friend and colleague. Many times, she knew instinctively when to offer a prayer or kind words. She will be missed. Heartfelt sympathies.
