Evvie Smith

My name is Evvie Smith. I was Tax Preparer for Gil and Audrey for umpteen years. I looked forward to seeing them each year as they were both so bright and shining in their happiness together. We enjoyed sharing our experiences and laughing together. I was dismayed when March came and went and they had not contacted me. I tried to reach them at Fountain Hills but got nowhere. I am glad I chanced on Gil”s obituary even though it brings me sadness to know they have both passed on. I did not see the obit for Audrey. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to all their family.
