In Memory Of Evelyn



One year ago today, tragedy struck my friend Brandi's family. Her five-year-old niece, Evelyn Miller, went missing from her Iowa home. After days of searching, Evelyn was found murdered in a local river.

The investigation into Evelyn's death is still open, and her killer has yet to be arrested.

I didn't know Evelyn personally. Over the last year, though, I've heard so many stories of what a great kid she was. How much she loved her younger brothers, how she enjoyed spending time with Brandi and her husband Joe, and how much she loved getting to dress up as a flower girl in Brandi's wedding. She was a five-year-old girl whose life was cut tragically short, and whose family misses her every day.

A memorial fund has been set up in Evelyn's memory. The fund will be used to make donations to community programs in Evelyn's name. Anyone interested in making a donation can send it to:

Evelyn Miller Memorial Fund
First Security Bank & Trust
