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!

Hello Classmates! Suzanne Osborne and I bought a six pack of beer, fritos and bean dip. We sat in front of BA the week after we graduated and sang the alma mater as we finished all three delicious items!! Remember Suzanne? I picked her up every morning for Belle practice. I would lay on the horn because she was always late coming out of the house. Harold, her dad said that as soon as we graduated he was going to shoot me!! I loved Judy Roses's house on Sundays! Her mom made chicken and dumplings over mashed potatoes!! If I ever wanted to go somewhere I knew my dad would not approve of, I just said I was going to Mary Jayne Turbeville's house! My dad said she was my only nice friend that was not into mischief!! He was right! OK this is so bad but girls do you remember our bus trip to Galveston in Gaston and what we called the bus driver??? Rosemary Lalamia, your mom was brave to go with us!! I still try and do the high kick from Belles!! I cant do it but I try! Loved the Dairy -Ette! They have t-shirts now! Dan Drake and Ron Ham would ride their banana bikes up there and meet us for lunch! Loved the donut shop in Casa Linda!! I ate six after practice all the time!!
