As I sit hear thinking of what to say all I can hear in my head is you calling your children by their two names(first and middle).That's a sound I will never forget, you called them with such love in your voice.The smell of Juneaux hot dogs simmering on your stove,the pure excitement of watching the horse shows at Pretty Oaks,the time Susan Raye braked danced for us in the yard.These are just a few of the memories I will carry the rest of my life.But most of all thank you for your son David. Even though it was short , he made a huge impact on me and my children lives. Ms. Yvonne you will be missed greatly and were loved deeply, till we meet again. Love, Chetta
