    Dear Diane,

    When I think of Yvonne, she always brings a smile. So many memories . . .
    I remember . . . how delicately she would clean each leaf of endive for a salad, or an egg before cracking for an omelette.

    I have many memories of my Aunt Yvonne, but our family trip to Montreal Expo 67 was the best. We arrived at 1:00am, lost, in the city, and Yvonne attempted to ask for directions, in French. The guy said, "I don't speak French Lady!" We busted...  more
