So sorry for your loss. Von and I have been friends since grammar school. We lived in walking distance of our childhood homes. Von, Judy, and I spent lots of time together. I will miss her visiting me and me visiting her, and those long conversations on the phone. Rest in peace Von, till we meet again.

Yvonne was my mother's (Judy Billingsley Shockley) best friend from grade school through weddings and work and children and grandchildren and just plain life until she passed away in 2016. I do not remember a time in this world without Yvonne in it. She was such a special lady to me and my family, especially my son Wyatt. We hold a dear and special place in our hearts for her. It is with much sadness that we pass on our deepest sympathies to her family. I find solace knowing that my mom was welcoming her with open arms upon her passing into the next life. Sending our thoughts and prayers and love - Tiffany, George & Wyatt
