To the Yeaton Family,

We were so blessed that God had our paths cross many years back at Faith Temple Assembly of God.
What a wonderful blessing your parents were to us. They were always like "a breath of fresh air" and never a dull moment. Always laughing and giving smiles when you needed it.
Thanks for sharing your parents with us.
