    I loved Yen with with all my heart. What a heart of gold! She was so funny, and she loved to laugh. We would sit outside talking and laughing for hrs sometimes. She sure took the love thy neighbor to the extent – what a privilege to get to know her. She new Sammy since she was 2 (and she’s 14 now) and loved her, Sammy loved Yen like a Grandma. Charlie, Danny, John and Casey love you all and bless all of you. You are in my thoughts.
