You Are Invited to Celebrate Jim's Life this Monday

It is with great sadness that I write this final posting on the Team Hope website. As many of you are already well aware, my father Jim, passed away this last Monday, April 19th at 6:44 p.m. His absence is an unimaginable void we are slowly learning to accept.

James Donald Evavold is survived by his wife Candy and his four children; Jill, Jesse, Jennalee and myself.
All of us and his entire extended family have been battling to save him since his diagnosis, September 14, 2009.

I wanted to let you know that Jim Evavold's funeral, and the celebration of his life, will be at 10:30 AM on Monday, April 26th at St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue. Everyone is invited to attend and we are encouraging everyone to come. There will be a reception immediately following the service, which will last until approximately 1:30 p.m., at which time we will commence to Calvary Cemetery in Seattle for the burial service at 2:30 p.m. 

Please come prepared to share a few words about Jim. We encourage humorous memories and stories, as this is a celebration of a man who was constantly cracking jokes. If you feel that you would not be able to share a memory that you have, we will have a basket for you to place your memory in and someone else can read it for you.

The location of the service will be at St. Louise Catholic Church 10:30 AM
