No words can heal the hurt.
But I’d like to say, heaven has definitely gained an angel.
Mrs. Youthaleen loved her yard. I hope we helped her to love it more.

I was so sorry to learn of Youthalene's passing. She was one of my favorite customers and will surely be missed. Always smiling, always pleasant. An absolute joy to know. I enjoyed visiting with her and feel very grateful that I met her and got to spend some time with her over the years.
