This is such a loss for all. Yvonne was my favorite aunt. Even though there was always about 1500 miles between us we were close. I remember spending a couple summers with her and many many vacations. I loved her alot and will miss her terribly. I know Mom and her are kicking up their heels.

Barb, My condolences on the loss of your mother. Although it's been many years since I've visited with her I still have very fond childhood memories of her as a kind and sweet woman. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
