What a kind & sweet soul, that we were all very lucky to have had in our lives. While her time has passed, the memories she made and the memory of her will not be forgotten.
We extend our deepest sympathies to Jim & Aimee, Chris & Desiree and their children, along with Yvette's entire family. We are all better for having known her.

Deepest sympathy to the entire family, but especially Chris, Jim and Rose, and their families. We recognized early on that Yvette must have been a very special lady having raised her son Marc to be such a fine man. Marc was likely waiting with open arms to hug his dear mom. We find comfort knowing that Yvette is now at peace. God bless you all in your time of sadness. Rose, we know you had a special friendship with Yvette and your dedication to her was inspiring. Love and hugs to you all. xo
