So very sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Terri & Family,
Sorry for your loss, we were out of town for several weeks and just saw the article today. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Her warm smile and kind heart was a reflection and tribute to you!

I remember talking to you in high school and at UU...I don't know why I'm writing this, but I know that you're now a part of a greater energy we can't understand.
Sorry for your loss. I can not imagine the pain of losing a child. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow.
May the memory of Yvonne's smile, her confidence and spirit lighten up your days ahead. You are in my prayers!!
I'm still so surprised and saddened by the loss of your daughter Yvonne. My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. Much love to you!
I remember when we first met this spunky little girl in Nevada. She hit it off so well with my boys as if they were sibblings rather than cousins. It was good to hear from all of her Springfield family and friends how she maintained her spunk and charm. She is a great loss to this world, but a great treasure to have known.
We want to thank everyone for the outpouring of help and condolenscense. We were so touched by the hundreds of people who came to her services, and the many who spoke about how she touched their lives.
We especially appreciated hearing from her teachers and youth group advisors, who watched her grow up and shared in the journey with us.
May we remember her positive works and her high spirits as we move through the dark days ahead. And may we carry this energy throughout our lives.
We love you, Goose.
Mom and Dad
I love my sweet daughter...she will be missed beyond words.
We are so very sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. As you may have guessed, we are the classmates and friends of Dalton Jones. Each and every one of us grieve for your beautiful daughter and wife. Just know that we are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. God is always with you so keep him in your hearts.
Jim, Terry and Family,
Our hearts and tears go with you in your grief. Yvonne was a beautiful soul who never lost her sense of wonder and excitement. As the song goes - when she got the choice to sit it out or dance - she danced. We can learn about life from this beautiful person. Be at Peace!
I will always remember Yvonne as being cool, calm, & collected while the rest of us were running around like chickens with heads cut off. She just had that way of making you feel peaceful& reassured you that everything was gonna be alright. Thank you Yvonne for sharing your beautiful spirit with us....we all love you.

I worked with Yvonne for a few years at SteakNShake and for a couple months at Texas Roadhouse and she was very nice and left a good impression on me. I am sad that she is gone however I am glad she no longer feels the pain of this life but instead is set free eternally.
I met her in Rushville, she was a blessing to everyone that she met or knew. Always the positive attitude and a smile. My heart is aching for you my thoughts and prayers have been on your family and her husband every since I heard. Hopefully you can feel the love and prayers that are going out to your family !
We did not know Yvonne real well, but from what we did she was a beautiful wonderful girl and she and Nick made a perfect couple. We are very sorry for your loss and your family is in our hearts and prayers.
Yvonne was honestly one of a kind. She was an amazing person with such a kind and caring heart. I am so sorry for your loss. I will cherish the memories I have of her. I wish there was more I could say, but honesly I am at a loss for words. I will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts. Love, Danielle Hampson & family.
My heart goes out to you and your family Terri. I was saddened beyond words to hear of Yvonne's passing. I will always remember her as a free-spirited and beautiful young lady who was fearless by nature and not afraid to “think outside the box”. During her far too short time on this earth, she touched many lives – mine included. I will miss her ready smile at the coffee cart and her sweet way of saying, “Thank you hon”. Cat Stevens so aptly sang, “We're only dancing on this earth for a short while” and Yvonne did just that – she embraced life to the fullest and danced with her eyes and arms wide open. May fond memories of Yvonne, and the knowledge that she will be remembered and missed by many, comfort you in days ahead.
Words cannot express the sorrow and sadness of your loss. May you always hold close to your heart the wonderful memories of this beautiful spirited young woman who brought so much love and laughter to the people she encountered during her journey here on earth.
Words cannot express our heaviness for your family, and we pray God will help you and keep you during this painful time. (Several of our friends knew and bragged on your amazing daughter.)
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Terri, our hearts are deeply saddened and heavy with grief. We offer you and your family love and light and a vast spaciousness to hold and share all the wonderful memories of your beautiful Yvonne.
Shanti, shanti, shanti (peace, peace, peace,)

I cannot express my sorrow at the loss of such a kind and vivacious girl. I knew her through my son Michael Killian and she was always so repectful and fun to be around. At Michael's wedding seh went out of her way to introduce to me to people she thought I might not remember. She was beautiful in every way. If you need to talk, please call me at 217 361-9688. I will not have the right words, but I can listen and sometimes it is better to talk to someone you do not know well. My prayers are with you. Lynn Taylor Clark
