    Our hearts are saddened as we loved Bonnie from the time she came into our lives at age two. We will sorely miss her, seeing her pictures and getting to occasionally have a long telephone conversation with her as we remembered old times. She was so very much like her mom, looking like Barbara and sounding just like her. When she would call me, I would get a real shock thinking it was once again her mom. Our prayers are with all those who loved her.

    To the Family of Yvonne, We read in the paper today about Yvonne's death. She was a wonderful person and caregiver for our company and she will be missed. She worked for us between 2004 - 2009 and helped countless families in their time of need. She was always available to pick up last minute shifts and we could always depend on her to provide care with a smile. The clients and families loved her caring nature and she truly made a difference in all of our lives. May God bless you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Sarah

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Yvonne's family and friends. She was a very sweet, caring lady with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed working with her as a caregiver. She was always someone you could count on to make your day better. She was a ray of sunshine to anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.

    I remember her as "Bonnie" growing up. She lived down the road. We attended the same school and we road the same bus, but she was in one grade higher. What I remember the most about her was that she liked to sing and her favorite song at the time was "These Boots Were Made For Walking." She would often sing and perform a dance on her front porch, for my twin sister and I. She was a very likable person. I wished I had of spoken to her in more recent years. My thoughts and prayers are with Mr Kenneth (her father) and all of her family and closest friends.
