Memories Timeline


  1. Yvonne and I visited a lot when we met at the Library and other places in Jennings. She was always so sweet. My deepest sympathy to Robin and her grandson. 'til we meet again.

  2. Gramma Yolande was a sweet and wise woman. Her grandson Rene has been my best friend for almost 20 years. I remember growing up eating her food that she grew straight from her garden. Her cucumbers were the best around. I will miss her coleslaw and wonderful stories. Rest easy granny. We will forever love and miss you.
