    I love and will dearly miss Mrs. Yvonne. It was such an honor, privilege and blessing spending time with her and her family. I will really miss playing “fish” with her and watching her play on her iPad. She was such a sweet, kind and loving lady and never missed one day saying her rosary or praying before each meal. Continued love and prayers for her family. ????
    Love, Jo????
