Words can't express how much it hurts to lose a loved one and the void of losing you has left in my life and heart.

Dear Yvonne my friend, mentor, teacher but most of all my older sister who was not afraid to correct and hug me as we grew up. I miss you!
I regret not being able to be with you more often to chat and share sister secrets and laugh.
I miss your laughter as you joked with my Ted. Such fun and cheer you two shared during our times together. I hope and pray you are together laughing now. Great music in heaven!
Terry and Lilly, Kelly, Karen, Kathryn and Tim I am so sorry for you on the loss of your Mother.
Yvonne you are gone from us but you will never be forgotten.

Love forever, your sister Merrian.

To the family and friends of Yvonne - I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It's been well over 20 years since I've been in touch with Yvonne, but I do remember her bright, beautiful smile and her generosity. She hired me many years ago when she worked for a downtown law firm; I was new to the administrative workforce and Yvonne took a chance and hired me. I will always be grateful that she did. It's clear from these condolences that she had a big heart and the patience to listen and offer advice to her children and grandchildren. It's obvious that Yvonne loved you dearly. May she rest in peace.

Dear Mom, you told me once you always knew when it was me coming in the door as I would always say "Hello! Is anybody home!?" and that's true - I would always walk through the door wondering if you were there because you were the heart of our home. Do you remember when I was little how I just wanted to be near you? I remember on Shaunessy how I'd sit on the basement stairs with my Mr Whiskers school book and watch you do laundry. I wasn't really interested in the book but you told me I had to do my reading so I pretended, Or how about the number of mornings I'd get up early when I heard you getting ready for work? I'd come sit in the bathroom on the vanity beside you and watch as you bathed, then as you grabbed your clothes for the day and I'd watch you put yourself together. You were always done from head to toe, with earnings & necklaces and shoes to match your purse. I used to love how each morning after breakfast you'd put your change on the kitchen table for the bus. You used to tease me and say I'd spend the same money twice, which is true LOL. I definitely did not inherit your bookkeeping skills. More than anything I used to love having time alone with you - I guess because when I arrived you had already gone out to work full time. So I'd feel like the luckiest girl in the world on the off day when you'd stay home from work. I would run home from school or pretend I was sick just to have time with you. I remember how in car rides you'd let me put my head in your lap and you'd stroke my head. There was no more comforting place to be than near you. Even as a teen, I'd come home from school or my part time job and climb in to bed with you and we'd talk. I think we did that just about every night. Then as I got older I would take such pleasure in your aggravation with me, I don't know why, but I did. Or how you'd say my full legal name when you were annoyed with me "Kathryn Joanne Mooney!" LOL then I really knew I'd reached your last nerve, but I'd still tease you because I never wanted to see you upset. Making you happy and being protective of you came naturally to me. But so did our laughter together. We had so many good laughs, like the time I slept in your bed because we were painting my bedroom, and I had a dream that night I was scratching a kittens head only to wake up and find I was scratching yours in your sleep!! God how we laughed about that :) I have a catalog of memories tucked away in my heart - so many I could fill a book. You taught me things which I'll take with me til I leave this earth. Sayings like "simplicity is the essence of good taste" and I live that til this day. You shaped me and lovingly allowed me to grow in to my own woman. You taught me everything except how to live without you. I love you. I miss you. My heart will always beat for you. Love, your daughter Kathryn.

My Queen, Grandma.

We were all very lucky to be able to have a woman like you in our lives; A woman who was full of compassion, patience, devotion, generosity, laughter and love.
As I sit here, such fond memories of you flood my mind. I have learnt an immense amount from you throughout my 28 years. I was never able to grasp your delicious homemade apple pie recipe like Aunt Lilly has though, but I can make some delicious mashed potatoes and knit a great, long, long, long scarf!

I miss hearing your contagious laugh. I often sit down and reminisce of times we would be together nearly choking ourselves from laughing so hard.
Thank you for being my person, the one I could always depend on to steer me back on track and put a smile on my face.
Here’s to all the burnt pork chops, soggy Sheppard’s pie, never-ending cribbage and rummy tournaments, dropped knitting stitches, watery coffee and every other test I’ve put your patience through.
I love and miss you deeply. Your memory will never fade Grandma, I promise you that.

Your grand-daughter,
