    Anthony, Gina, and Debbie, I just found out that Yvonne died. I moved my mother to another facility in June so hadn’t been at the WBJH for 2 months. I was so fond of Yvonne. Before Covid, she was my dinner companion when I came to the Home every Friday night to sit with my mother. I loved how her eyes lit up when she talked about dancing, traveling, and of course, dogs. My mother hasn’t been able to have a conversation in some years now so I would always go into Yvonne’s room to talk after my visits. She was my friend at the Home and I will miss her.

    Dear Debbie and Anthony - Our deep sympathy on the loss of your beloved mother, Yvonne. We hope, in time, happy memories will be consoling. In friendship, Elaine and Jerry
