Sending sincere condolences and prayers to George and his family during this difficult time. I met Yvonne along with her husband George and their family over thirty years ago; welcoming me and made me feel part of their family. Yvonne, what a beautiful lady with the warmest heart will truly be missed but never forgotten.

I will always remember the kindness Yvonne showed to me over all of the years. Yvonne was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Yvonne was my children's cousin making her family forever. My thoughts, prayers and love are with the entire Wilson family at this most difficult time.

Descanse em paz Yvonne!

To the Wilson Family,
We are so sorry for your loss and are sending healing prayers to the family at this time. May you be surrounded with love and beautiful memories shared.

To the Wilson Family, Jim and I are so sorry for your loss. One of my biggest regrets is never having the pleasure of meeting her in person. I have gotten to know what a very special person she was threw my daughter Rosalie who has called her Grammie for as long as I can remember.
For years now Jim and I have thought of you all as Rosalie's second family.
We are sorry we cant be there in person to pay our respects. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
