Cute little bunnies, candy filled eggs, and sugar logged marshmallow birds are already filling our pantries; but why? Well the holiday is Easter and the western tradition tagged on to this holiday is a day of remembrance and celebration of the resurrection of Christ; which begs the question, what do all these other things have to do with this great man that not only died on the cross but rose from the grave? The truth is simple, nothing at all. Our holidays are ancient worldly traditions that we have merely tagged Jesus on to in hopes to fulfill a religious right that may leave our bellies full but our souls still empty. So rather than us going rounds on, "Why Easter" I would much rather focus on this: "Why Jesus."
Evie Wheeler was not just a mother to her own children, she was a mom to many kids in Winlock, babysitting over 400 kids in her lifetime.

She loved easily, genuinely and with her whole heart." Nick, Evie and Jim's son, wrote a wonderful piece about his mom on Facebook. It truly showed the love he had for his mom.
