The oldest of the six of us, I'm sure she had the most responsibility growing up in our home.
She watched us often when my parents were working and such. I looked up to her and admired her determination and work ethic.
She has always been a hard worker. She doesn't know the meaning of the words "give up."
She has a harsh exterior, but a tender heart. She loves her family passionately, and it shows in everything she does for them.
I remember one day when i was in 3rd grade, Yvonne brought a change of clothes to school for me. You see, I had an accident in school and was quite embarrassed. I was so thankful for that change of clothes and the reassurance from my oldest sister that it was "OK."
She became a wife, a mother and is now a grandmother. She still works hard and is still very passionate about family.
I love you Miss Yvonne! and I am so thankful for you!
