They spent all their days together laughing and joking with the loving and devoted staff at Brightview. Evelyn enjoyed crocheting, jigsaw puzzles and making all kinds of crafts. Evelyn especially loved her iPad and being a member of the “Senior Surfers.” Evelyn’s family would like to thank all the staff at Brightview for loving Evie every day.
