My mother-in-law, Yvonne, was a sweet, kind, compassionate woman who never spoke badly of anyone. She was very religious and would always pray for myself or any member of my family whether it be for sickness, to watch over us while traveling or just to protect us. It meant the world to me that she would do that for us. RIP Mom. I will miss you. Love, Sue

Ma Tante Yvonne was one of the kindest, most gentle people I've ever known. She wore her heart on her sleeve, and looked for the good in everyone. I will always remember her smile and her laugh. I'm thankful to have known her and I will miss her. - Dave
