Farewell for Evan Maldonado

Believe me when I say this is not easy for me to write.

Evan Taylor Maldonado (Evan Smedley)
August 11th 1974 - July 18th 2017 (Aged 42)

Daughter of Lana Wood & Richard Smedley,  passed away this week after her heart stopped beating.

Evan is the niece of actress Natalie Wood who died at the age of 43, Evan was only weeks away from turning 43 and to make matters even sadder it is Natalie Wood's birthday tomorrow. 

I have been asked by Evan's family to set this page up for those who  have been asking how to  contribute in helping  the family give her the send off she deserves.

Another blow for the family after succesfully getting them from homelessness - and now this.

Evan was just given last rites, her morphine drip  &  the removal of her breathing tube yesterday.

God take her gently and give her to Natalie. May her soul find eternal peace and May the memories she left behind live in her beautiful children's hearts.

My heart goes out to all of Evan's Family.  Stay Strong.
