    I love you so much Aunt Yvonne. Thank you so much for being so kind to me and teaching me how to make the best French Toast ever!!!!

  7. Sandra Mury says:

    Even though we were 7 years apart in age, we were very close growing up together on a farm in Mississippi. I was so sad when she got married at 18 and I was only 11. She was leaving me and I could not stop it. Even though she married, we continued to be best friends during her married life. We visited often and she was very important to me. Her first child, Michael, was killed in a car accident and I felt as though I had lost my child because we were so close. I will always love you and you will live on forever in my heart! Your loving sister, Sandra
