  4. My thoughts are with the Family,Yvonne was a wonderful person. I know she will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

  5. My heart aches. I am so glad I got to play and sing at Oncology twice while she was there. I will surely miss seeing her beautiful eyes and wonderful smile. I will see them in my minds eye for sure. I always get laughing when I think of the bowling tournament in Niagara Falls we went to and our whole team got up every morning and marched through the court yard of our hotel singing the Mickey Mouse song……….. they never threw us out, but shook their heads with huge smiles on their faces!

    Always helping, always caring, always a friend, always in our hearts. Sending comfort, love and strength to all who feel this loss. Deanna
