There still remains a sharp sting when I think of Evan's passing. He was a strong personality with a sharp dry wit who carved out a long lasting memory. My condolences.

Evan was my high school roommate and friend. He was a dear, smart, sensitive man. A wicked sense of humor and fun made him a great companion. I miss him terribly.
