Hi again peaceful people

Further information on Yvonne's memorial is posted now at

76th birthday, will run in tomorrow's paper):

And the full obituary created by Desiree Hellegers and myself, which has 
ten photos accompanying it, on the Omega Funeral Services website:


Remember to RSVP by Friday at 1 PM if you want a speaker slot; I should 
also suggest RSVP'ing if you want the Zoom link simply to attend, 
otherwise you can go to the tinyurl link Sunday morning and it will be 
there. There will be a part of the event where people will be invited to 
speak spontaneously if so moved.
