Evelyn’s family were immigrants to the US. It took the family six years, and their efforts to move mountains just to obtain passports.
Once they successfully made it, no thanks to the overlooked harassment at the border, they searched for funding to open a store.
Minority grants and immigrant funds were obtained, and the small town of Transford gained another business.
Less than two years post established, Evelyn caught meningitis. She hadn’t the immunizations and immune system to fight it off.
Her family couldn’t afford a plot, let alone a headstone. In her memory, they planted some of her favorite flowers in an old piano.
