Kenny and Kelly, your mother had the sweetest spirit. She was kind and generous and a special friend. Erin and Kelly being friends at school threw us together through the years and we bonded with mutual interests and concerns during the teen years. For years We were both members of the Mattie Lou Strain Sunday School class and sat together when we could. AT Christmas I asked her to come to the American Red Cross office and help address cards to the military. She was first to arrive and we were last to leave. This is a special memory that I shall never forget. She was loved by so many and such an inspiration. Deepest sympathy to all of your family. Carol Nance

Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May many wonderful memories sustain you in the years to follow. Sincerely, Mary Ann Brooks

Once again we cannot find the right words to express how we feel just know that we will miss that sweet lady who always had that beautiful smile. That smile was a reflection of her heart and she could always lift a person's spirit. We will miss that but we are left with wonderful memories.

I will miss Ms. Yvonne's sweet spirit as I walk into the First Baptist Church Christian Life Center. When I saw her she made me smile inside.
