Dear, dear, Yvonne,
How happy I am to have known you, both as a close friend and a professional colleague.
Your tireless outreach to others and sense of personal integrity were wondrous to behold.
I wish blessings and peace on your family and friends as we mourn your loss. I will look for you in the spring flowers (especially the pink ones). I will listen for you in beautiful music.
The celestial choir just gained another powerful, jubilant voice, coupled with a sassy sense of humor, and impeccable style. (Not to mention the perfect shade of lipstick).
As those of us who knew you continue our lives, we will be inspired by your memory.
With love and friendship,
