May the family take comfort in knowing Yvonne was much loved. She was my beautiful cousin--I haven't seen in years because I moved to Texas many decades ago. The family remains in my heart and I know the humble and hardworking parents who raised our generation. We were fortunate to have such loving parents and a large family who helped each other. I'm sure Yvonne passed on to her children the morals and kindness learned from our parents. May she rest in peace and join our ancestors in the glories of heaven. I am sorry not to be able to attend her services but please know I will say a prayer for her and for her grieving family.
