She was precious and to so many of us kids growing up a wonderful friend. She was always willing to load all of us up in her car and take us anywhere we wanted to go. She loved to go. The Yates were the best neighbors for many years. Trena I feel your pain and loss but HEAVEN is a better place today. Love you.
