"Dear Deborah,

One of the most difficult things to deal with in life is the death of a loved one, death is a part of life. The Christian has a blessed hope – that is the return of the Savior Jesus to catch up His Church and bring them to eternal life with Him and God the Father in Heaven.

John 11:23-26 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

Our deepest condolences and sympathies go out to you and your entire family. May the soul of aunt Yvonne’s soul rest in peace.  We pray that God grant you all the strength you need in this difficult time of sorrow.

Veronica Mathias & Family (Dubai/India)"

"A woman who loved God indeed, everytime I visited her, she would be watching God TV, her bible was within close reach, I had the privilege joining Yvonne in witnessing to those who were troubled and needed prayer.
Debbie you were the apple of her eyes, not a single visit of mine to your mums home was absent from thoughts centered around you. It's going to be hard Debbie, but I think her time on earth was over, leaving you to carry forward the torch she held for so long, so keep running with that torch held high and burning bright !!!!!"

"Dearest Debbie & Nigel & all the bereaved family members,

We extend our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies at the loss of Aunty Yvonne.We pray that her soul may rest in peace with our heavenly father.
Debbie, I stumbled upon this little poem and I'm sure this is what your darling mama would want to say to you.

A Message from Heaven,

Perhaps you aren't ready yet to have to say good-bye.
Perhaps you've thought of things you wish you'd say... well, so have I.
For one thing, I'd have told you, not to worry about me....
I'm with the Lord in heaven now .....you know that's where I'd be.
I'm sorry that you're feeling sad, for I'm so happy now....
I've asked the Lord to ease the hurt and comfort you somehow.
It's hard at the beginning, but I know you'll make it through.
I hope it helps to know that I'll be waiting here for you.

May God grant you all the strength and peace you need at this moment in time.
Luv 'n' Prayers,
Aaron, Darryl & Meloney"

"Dearest Debbie and Nigel

Remember that those we love dont go away
they walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
so loved, so missed, so very dear....

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear,
just know that you are very close to us in every thought and prayer.

With deepest sympathy,
Fiona, Gladwyn and Klyne"

"Dear Deb

Our sincere condolences to you and your family.
Yvonne was a beautiful and sensitive person. We remember her as caring and loving, with a lot of patience. She was faithful, appreciative and thankful for life. These are some of our fond memories of her.

We can be confident and comforted by the words of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Jesus said to her, "I am the one who brings people back to life, and I am life itself. Those who believe in me will live even if they die. John 11:25

"Our precious Yvonne, we can't believe you have gone so quickly.  When we close our eyes we could see your lovely smiling face and that's what we will hold close to our hearts.  It's difficult even doing this tribute without tearing up. We were always very close, you were more a mum to Melvin than his sister, we will miss you terribly but one thing comforts us, is knowing that you are no longer in pain and are save in the arms of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  It's bye for now our precious Yvonne,  we will see you again soon, because of the hope that we have in Jesus Christ.
Melvin, Jackie, Jeremy, Kim & Bethany + Micah"

"Darling Aunty Yvonne,
Where do we begin to explain the unimaginable loss we feel in our hearts at this moment. Your radiant smile lit up any room. As a teacher, you enriched hundreds upon hundreds of little children's lives every day during your work days, as a friend you were there when needed the most, as a sister you nurtured your siblings, especially my mom as a mother selflessly and with an open heart. You were the family's ROCK.
As a mother we saw you love Debby beyond any other. She was your Angel.
As an Aunt you loved your nieces and nephews with maternal love and always welcomed them with open arms.
As your niece, Aunty Yvonne you were like my mom and I owe a lot of who I am to you. You gave us so many lovely childhood memories that I will cherish forever. Farewell my darling Aunty Yvonne and may you enjoy your crown embedded with priced jewels for all the amazing works you did on this earth and endless people's lives you touched with your sincere, loving and caring nature. Rejoice in heaven. From, your sister Jennifer & Brother-in-law Everton Suares and your nieces Maralyn, Michelle and Miralla"
