Condolences to the Family

December 20, 2021

To the Kipphorn family: I am so sorry following the loss of Yvonne. Especially since it was so sudden. She loved each of you so much and always made it a point when I was in talking to her that she would show me her many pictures of her windowsill of you all. She always told me this quote, “When God gives you a loving family like he gave me what more could you need?” I could not agree more. We would talk very often about our mutual Catholic faith as well. Blessings and prayers to you all during this difficult time. Warm regards, Mark Gales (Yvonne’s Social Worker at Pleasant View)
