  4. Dear “Uncle” Bob, I was so sorry to hear of Yvette’s passing! The wonderful memories I have from when I was a teenager of her and Annette making us “kids” laugh will be with me forever! She always made everyone feel welcome. The fact that she passed on the same date as her dear twin sister…but 25 years later is not a coincidence to me. Our prayers and love to you and all your children and grandchildren. We all were lucky to have Yvette in our lives. Love, Gail Jeschke

  5. Have known the whole Lamb family for over 40 years. Liked them so much, I married into the family (indirectly)! Over all the many years and many hours I used to spend at the house as a kid, I never once saw her show the slightest bit of anger. She ALWAYS had a smile and often was laughing. I can hear her laughing in my head right now. Please accept my sincere condolences and know that I am thinking about all of you at this incredibly sad time.

  6. Dearest Robert,

    We are so very sadden to hear of Yvette’s passing. I have such wonderful fond memories of her and am so very thankful for them. It is our prayer that you will be comforted and consoled during this difficult time. You are all in our prayers for the days ahead. With much love and prayers
