Mom,

All our memories I will treasure forever. I wish we had more time together . A lifetime still would never be enough. I'm going to miss you for the rest of my life.

I remember having lunch with Yvonne, Kimmy ,Angela, Vincent and Kerry. We did outside lunch because of covid.
I said to them I have a story to tell you. I buy stuff off of Facebook. And there was a giant picture of a Statue in the driveway with the words Hope and in the middle was the Manger it was all glittery. I said I was gonna put it in my garden for Christmas. I thought it would look beautiful there.
I asked Andy if it could fit in the car he said sure.
So a few days later Andy is getting ready to pick it up. I was thinking maybe I should message the lady to see if someone could help him . I was naw Andy got this.
Andy gets home and hands me a bag I was like oh you brought something else he didn't say anything , so I open the bag and inside it , its the Statue its no more bigger than 12 inches . Yvonne laughs so hard.she had tears running down her face ,we all .
We couldn't stop laughing I thought they were gonna tell us to leave.
I loved Yvonne's laughter her smile. I am gonna miss that and I will miss her hugs.
Love you Yvonne rest easy forever in my heart.

My memories of Yvonne are the typical memories of cousins getting together at all the holidays. She was the youngest, right behind me in age so of course we played together. I can still picture her as a kid. Family holidays were the best . My condolences to your family. ❤️😢

We went on a charter fishing boat out of Belmar several years ago . no one was really catching anything at the time so the captain decided to move to a different spot . We were at o ur new spot and everyone decided to cast their lines . i was sitting next to Yvonne as she turned to talk to me and there was piece of chum above the top of her mouth. she didn’t even know it yet. i said to her what’s on your face, she reached up to find the chum . of course she was grossed out at first but we started hysterically laughing for a long time. As time went by when we would see each other we would talk about that day and start laughing again. Sometimes we would cry cause we were laughing so hard.!Yvonne i love you and will miss you so much Love Patti

I met the Terry family when my family moved to New Jersey from California. Little did I know that Yvonne had gone to school with my mom. The memories are endless....Matthew and I always managed to get ourselves in some sort of trouble. From biting each other ALL the time to throwing poisonous caterpillars (or whatever that thing was) at one another. Endless summers in the pool, Big Ancil always coming up with some sort of game. Little Ancil NEVER getting my name right, I was always Hella Dawn, no matter how many times Mrs Yvonne would correct him. She was the sunshine I needed in a dark moment in my life. The safe zone as a kid, even when we were in trouble. Mrs Yvonne and Kim were so excited when I had my oldest daughter...but I moved away shortly after that. She was so loved by so many and she will be missed. I’m sure Matthew was waiting for her at the pearly gates. Rest easy Mrs Yvonne.

I always smile when I think about how Yvonne and Ancil would tease one another. It was always lighthearted and in good fun, and usually Ancil would be the antagonist and get the better of her, except this one time in front of my house on the porch. After having a get together, eating dinner, and then saying our goodbyes, Ancil started to relate a story he wanted to tell while leaning against my porch railing.
Ancil put his head down in thought for about 10 seconds, then dipped his head a degree lower, while Nanny, Dana, and I all patiently waited for Pop Pop to find his words to complete his thought when Nanny suddenly blurted out yelled out at him, "Hey ! What ? You thinking so hard you fall asleep again!?
We all started laughing so hard I think I peed myself a little bit. It was a good 3 minutes of mutual group laughter but every time I was catching my breath Yvonne would just point at Ancil and start laughing again getting us all laughing all over again until I could barely breath. Yvonne had a great sense of humor, wit, and the most contagious laughter... and I will miss her always.
