I was sadden to hear of the passing of Yvonne. As a teenager, I spent time talking with her and she became my friend. My heart goes out to the family. Prayers for all of you.

Wayne, Little Wayne, Misty, Donna,

I am so sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. She was such a good friend to my mama and our family. I have many, many fond memories of her. Mama always talked about how they could go a year and not see each other and then pick up right where they left off. I remember the time Jason was in Chapel Hill and he wasn't able to eat anything. All he wanted was Yvonne's macaroni and cheese. She whipped him up some and made the four hour drive to bring it to him. That is the kind of person she was. I love you all and please know there are many prayers going up for all of you.
