I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Yarala. I remember staying at the house, eating taco burgers and playing in the kennel. She always made me feel welcome and as one of the family. Dusty, you will always be one of my closest, school friends and the memories were ones that I will cherish.
My prayers and condolences to the family.

My heart is sadden. I grew up with Yarla from grade school in Wichita,Ks, I loved her. Zoeann, Terry , Danny and Lynda and all, so sorry for your loss.
Dusty and Starletta you probably do not remember coming to Oregon with your Mom and Dad and stayed at our house. I have some pictures of good times at Worlds of fun also. Memories are special. Some good and some sad. I talk with Zoeann but, lost contact with Yarla past few years. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

You will be missed. I enjoyed the time you worked with me at my beauty shop.
I was just thinking of your wedding the other day...what a day we had getting your hair, nails and everything just right. I surely must have really liked doing that.
I pray for all your loved ones that are hurting now. you will be loved and missed.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. i met herr several years ago when i worked at the nursing home. She did my hair several times and whe would tell me about her kids and grandkids. i enjoyed watching her square dancing and she seemed to have an endless supply of energy. She will be missed by many. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
