In Memoriam

I remember Yvette also from Gill Elementary. I remember her and Spike Bennett "going together" in 7th grade. Great gal !!!

Cindy: I remember that yell. I made a mental note to never, ever cross Yvette or one of her friends. Sadly I didn't know her well ... but as anyone within ear shot of that yell will recall it was the mark of a real stand up friend. I think she was trying to make sure the whole school heard her and I'll be she was successful with all but maybe the far ends of the northern halls. She was one of a kind and that was always evident.

She's a Beauty. One in a Million Girls! I don't actually remember 'meeting' Yvette. It was like we'd always known each other. My high school sweetheart and first husband, Lee Knuth (BA'73), and i thought she and his best friend, Dan Bear, would be a good match. It was love at first sight. We joked about being the Ricardo-Mertz foursome. After graduation, she and i moved in with our Beaus in a little hippie pad up in Denton. The last time i saw her was at a class reunion. She had not changed a bit. I wish i had known she was ill because at that time I had all the time in the world to go and BE with HER. Alas. Yvette was the whole package: Charming. Witty. Smart. Genuinely sweet, with a good heart. Very Talented. Not to mention Gorgeous. She had such Charisma that i can still 'feel' her presence sometimes. I cherish that. MISS YOU LADY!

Yvette was a dearest friend our senior year and I have been looking for her for years. We road around in her little volkswagon all across the back country roads singing to the radio and laughing. I am so saddened to here she is gone. Look how beautiful she was.

Yvette and I were good friends at Gill Elementary. We used to go to each other's homes. We had older sisters the same age that we could complain about to each other. She lived in the corner house on Cotillion at Maylee. We sort of lost touch after moving on to Hill but we were in Lassies together there. She was a stand up friend. I remember her getting in trouble at Gill one time for taking up for me when a boy did something - I don't remember what now - but she yelled some ugly stuff at him and we all went to the principal's office!

Wow! So many of them...I'll come back when my memory is better. I can only hope that my memory is better soon. Gym Suits - be sure and take out the elastic that goes across your back No air conditioning, and therefore transoms above the classroom doors (since the ceilings had not been lowered yet) so Asuka Nakahara could "stunt" me through the opening into our calculus classroom to unlock the door after lunch so we would not be tardy to our next class Slumber parties on the weekends where we would "sneak out" to "roll" someone's house...OMG if I ever have a grandchild do that, I'll be worried sick! Going "riding around" through the Dairy Queen and Pizza Ghetti at Ferguson and Lakeland Girls could not wear pants to school our sophomore year unless we had on a "pantsuit." However, our dresses were allowed to be short enough that we couldn't even bend over to get a drink at the water fountain without...well, you know. Great teachers, great friends, great times!
