"A technical mailbox fault prevented me from reading your last news until today! And it mercilessly cuts the hotline with you my dearest friend, forever. Yvonne, your passing broke my heart!! Every moment I look at the photos taken on our last meeting just this February, I cry. Your sincerity, generocity and motherly love has warmed my heart in my nearly 30 years of Canadian adventure. You live in my heart! Yvonne. God set you free from the pain, for which I celebrate, but the pain of losing you however passes on to my memory for good until we meet in Heaven! Merry Christmas! Yvonne. Missing you! Joshua together with his Wife Connie and Mother Mrs. Gu"

"Yvonne, vous étiez une personne vraiment EXTRAORDINAIRE.  Je me rappellerai toujours de votre gentillesse, votre douceur et votre affection quand j'étais chez vous et lors de votre passage dans votre île natale, l'Ile Maurice.  Je garderai en mémoire de bons souvenirs, dont votre bonne humeur, votre sourire, vos talents culinaires, votre générosité et votre grande hospitalité.  Vous m'aviez accueilli les bras grands ouverts pendant les moments difficiles, et depuis ce jour nous avons eu une relation particulière,  Vos appels téléphoniques ou nous passions du temps à papoter de tout et de rien vont beaucoup me manquer.  La ou vous êtes maintenant, il n'y a ni souffrance ni douleur, vous pouvez dorénavant reposer en paix.
Joe, Nicole, Yan & familles, je ne pourrai être à vos côtés pour les obsèques, mais je serai là en pensée pour vous accompagner.  
Bon courage
