1/17/2014 - I remember Yvonne so well. She lived across the street from my family when they lived in East Carbon. She was three years older and was a wonderful role model for me. She was beautiful and kind then and I know she continued down that path through her life time. I was so sad when the family moved to Moab and I have thought of them so very often. My condolences to her family from a friend who had the honor of knowing Yvonne in her younger years. - Allena Fisher Hyatt

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
