    From my Facebook page which included a picture of my mom at work:

    Just got an e-mail from Erich Heidenreich pointing out that God just gave Dr. Veith a granddaughter named Evangeline.

    Here is a picture of my mom, Evangeline Marie Olson (yes, she was EMO) in Dr. Zimmer’s officer, now Dr. Volker’s office, right near 69th Street and Buffalo Ave. in LaSalle (Niagara Falls). Back in the day when nurses and folks in dental offices wore funny hats and refrained from wearing pajamas to work.

    My mother called herself ‘Vange’, but now the name Evangeline has become cool. The Canadian model called ‘Freckles’ by Sawyer on Lost, Evangline Lilly, is certainly cool and gorgeous.

    So I think that my mom, who died just over a month ago, might have stuck with name given her these days: Evangeline. For it means “of the Gospel.” What an amazing name. Of the Gospel. A name that springs from the death, burial, and resurrection of the Son of God.

    The Name. Philippians 2:10.

    Thanks, everybody. Booklover, Evangeline is #4. One of them is a boy. We also have another one on the way, though we don’t know the boy or girl information yet.
