I grew up with both Van and Wilma, back then they were not a couple, but I do remember all of the fun times we had at school and on the south end of Lima. They are still really great memories that I reflect back on daily . Van will be greatly missed. Stay strong Youngblood Family. In your hours of bereavement, keep God first, he does not make mistakes.
