Mr. and Mrs. H Younker were two very gracious people to whom I had the pleasure of meeting. I've know them since 1979 when I started working at Morton Plant Hospital where I met their daughter Jane Younker. We were both nurses and just starting our careers. I was always so amazed to hear of their interest in traveling. They were so adventuresome and it opened my eyes to the possibilities of travel. The two of them have raised a wonderful family that I fortunately have had the pleasure of spending some time with during their family reunions in Florida. I wish Mr. and Mrs. Younker much love and their very close family many warm thoughts of their times together.

Love Sandra
