Dear Glenda and family,
I am so saddened to hear of your loved one passing away.
I met Mr. Yost after my Daddy died in 2003.
Mother and I met with him at Restlawn. He was so kind and helpful to us in our time of need. I live in Smyrna, Ga., and every time I would visit with my Daddy at the cemetery, he would make a point to come up and talk with me at the graveside. He was a very caring man. I always looked forward to seeing him. He knew my Daddy, and always spoke very highly of him.
Glenda, you were in my sister, Pamela's class. She passed away last August in her sleep. Now they are together in heaven. They're probably both in a heavenly choir -- making a JOYFUL NOISE.
Prayers for you Glenda and the rest of the family. Sending much love.
