May God’s promises bring comfort and hope to Jonel's family. The Great Teacher Jesus assured us that death was like sleeping and one day all would hear his voice and come out from their memorial tombs to a better life. A life without sickness or death. (John 11:11-14, John 5:28,29, Acts 24:15, Revelation 21:4; Isaiah 33:24; Psalm 37:11) My condolences to Jonel's family and all who knew her, her smile, and her kindness.

Evans Family Members,
I want to express my heartfelt condolences to each one of you in the loss of your loved one. From reading Ms. Jonel's obituary, it is very obvious that she loved children, her family, and her church. Please know many are thinking of you during this difficult time in your lives.
With sympathy,

Carol House Epstein

Dear Family,
Aunt Jonel was 10 years old when I was born to her big sister, Helene. So Jonel became like a big sister to me. What fun we had growing up playing in our "pine straw make believe" houses in the piney woods of south Arkansas. Even after we became adults and moved across the country from each other, she never forgot my birthday! She was so special to me and I will miss her so much.
