    Dear Lisa and family. I'm so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have such wonderful memories of growing up with all of you. She was a great Girl Scout leader to all of us Brownies!! I could reminisce forever about all of my very fond memories. She was a wonderful person and role model. I was so blessed to have had her in my life. Love to all of you.

    Doug, Kim, Lisa and Nicole, I am devastated to learn of Yvonnes passing. She and I had so many good times together and I will never forget her. I have never known anyone that was as smart as she was. She could do anything and do it to perfection. I learned so much from her. I am so very sorry for your loss and I pray Gods comfort to each of you.
