4 Condolences for Emerita S.G. Evangelista, MD
To the family of Dr. Evangelista my prayers go out to you. I worked with Dr. Evangelista at Delaware State Hospital. She was a kind caring person. She was a wonderful doctor and was so compassionate to the patients. She did care for me several times when I visit the employee clinic. I am so grateful and blessed to have known her.
I worked very close with Dr Evangelista in the PCC at Delaware Psychistric Center for 8 years. She was one on the nicest person I had ever met and an excellent Doctor. I spent the next 20 years seeing her often at work. My Condolence to Joseph and Eileen.
Joe and Eileen, our heartfelt prayers are with you and your family. May God grant you the grace and strength to face the coming days and may He bless you with support from family and friends. While I never had the opportunity to meet your mother, I imagine that Joe’s professionalism and caring nature are a reflection of her spirit. I know first hand how a mother’s passing can weigh on your heart, but I hope you find some extra solace in knowing that she was called into God’s presence just in time to celebrate His triumph over death.
Rest in Peace Mrs. Joe.
