  1. Hank and Yolanda were neighbors. My daughter Caroline loved to stop by and play with Rocco and chat with them. They were so kind and patient with her anf she just loved all 3 of them. We are so sad to hear of Yolanda’s passing, but as Caroline put it – at least she gets to be with Hank now. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Dear Luann, Mary Jean, Johnnie, & Theresa. . . your mom was a sweetie and will be missed by all. We will always remember her under the grape arbor at your parents’ old home. We had some good times there, with all the kids, drinking wine with Henry and Yolanda. I like to think that she is with Henry, cooking a big pan of pasta. xoxo

  3. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you.Yolanda was a very sweet person and will be deeply missed. I remember how kind and thankful she was to me when I ended up taking over someone else’s turn driving and the tire blew apart on our trip to Fla. This happened when LuAnne and I were in sorority together. I know how close your family is – do remember she is now with her husband and looking down to watch over all of you. Keep happy memories forever in your hearts.
