My sweetest Wonnks, thank you for your unending love, hugs and laughs. I miss you. I miss our long chats, our inside jokes, our ridiculous texts, but most importantly, our special bond full of laughs. You gave and loved so generously and freely, just as you knew Jesus did. Thank you for loving me, Fonzy and our kids. See you again one day, Wonnks.
Rob, Morgan and Nico, we are sending our love and prayers for your peace. Yvonnka's light shines through you!! Love you guys.
