Bill "Little Bill" Evans.

"Aunt Annie Laurie was a nurse. She always wore her hair up in a bun and had a very distinctive voice. She used to address everybody as 'Hon'" When dad was in the nursing home, Annie Laurie was always there with him, right up the end. I remember thinking she looked really sad at the time. She was the oldest of the three children and both of her brothers passed away before her. -- Keith Petrus
