    I am so saddened for the Yelverton’s loss. My sympathy and prayers are with all of you. Dianne, you and my late Mother (Marcia) were really close a very long time ago, when Jimbo and I were kids. I remember us playing at your apartment and driving you all nuts! He was and still is a light to all who had the privilege of knowing him. For Lindsay: I never had the chance to know you, but I am sure that you are a wonderful person,for Jimbo to have hand picked you for his wife. I can only imagine your grief and sorrow at this time. For the children left behind: No words are there that I can ever say to take the pain away. I have been where you all are, when I was just 15. My heart goes out to you all and I know that Heavenly Father will wrap His loving arms around you all and your entire family. Stay strong for your Mom. I will continue to pray for you all, and I have faith that He will ease your broken hearts. God Bless and be with the entire family.
