Though we lost touch, I have thought of Yvette all through the years, and most fondly at that. I have taken liberties with a couple of stories I've shared, and that is that she was my ‘girl friend' before I got married at the end of '58. We were doing a series of USO shows with Johnny Grant, Honorary Mayor of Hollywood at the time. One night on the bus she fell asleep on my shoulder with my arm around her. My arm fell asleep as I didn't dare wake her. How many can lay claim to Yvette Vickers cuddling in their neck for about an hour and a half. What a great memory.

When her Playboy center-fold came out I was in the Army. My friend Bob Sollars brought the mag in to show me one of the greatest pin-ups he had ever seen. When he laid it on the desk in front of me I gasped loudly, “Yvette!!! I never saw her like that before"; or ‘behind' for that matter. He had to doubt me for certain. Could I blame him?

God Bless, beautiful Lady. I'll remember you always.

May you find the peace and comfort in the hereafter that eluded you in life. Beautiful, beautiful lady-rest well.

Even though you are gone away,
Your love will always be here to stay.
You touched our hearts with so many things.

God knew you were the one to save,
He took you home to get some rest,
Even though we loved you best.

Our hearts are filled with so much pain,
God loved you more, there was no shame.

At this time we must let go.
Your memories we will keep a flow.
Rest our dear cousin with peace of mind,
Your memories will live on through.

Rest In Peace
Your Cousin, Curtis
