Yvette we were Best friends in 4th-9th grade, walking to school every day, from Washington to JR High.
We laughed, we cried. I was the first one you told about Miranda. I still remember telling her about the closet which I thought was funny, but you and your mom didn't when the lady from the Health Dept. Came. Afterwards we laughed for many years about that. Miranda I sure hope you know that story.
My deepest condolences to the family.

I met Vette when I was working in Chillicothe Mo. Threw work, we became very close friends and kept in touch. She was so sweet and funny, she told me once that I was so white I glowed in the dark. She was smart and could fit in pretty much anywhere she wanted. But was always always all about her kids and grand kids. She'll be missed.
