  1. I learned with deep shock of the passing of Evelyn over the weekend. Evelyn was such a lovely carding person and always a pleasure to meet. Unfortunately l’m at present and was unable to attend the funeral. I offer my condolences to Eithne, Loretta and all the extended Holian family. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
