"The Broken Chain" We little knew that day, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. The Family Acknowledgements The family of Arlene V. Evans wishes to acknowledge with sincere appreciation all expressions of kindness, love, support, and concern shown during her illness and this period of bereavement. We have been strengthened by prayers and thoughtfulness. May God shower you with His abundant blessings as you continue to show love and kindness to others. Special thanks to the Mt. Pero Baptist Church and the Mt. Pero Missionary Ministry for their support during our time of grief. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mt. Pero Missionary Ministry (P. O.
