    Yvonne was a true friend . If she liked you . If not stay out of her way. Enjoyed spending time with her in high school. School dances , well she could dance like no other. Had not seen her since high school. Planned on attending a class reunion but never got to. Rest easy Yvonne, you are missed by so many friends that loved you.

    Anita was a co-worker for 10 + years until I retired. She was kind and caring person but would be up front with you on any issues she had with you. She would find hard to find items for me like DVD ‘s and only charge me what she paid for them. She was a good listener and good to listen to. I’m glad I knew her. Truly Bruce Marriott.
