    I’ve worked with Yvonne for many years here in RSU 19 in Maine. She is a very dedicated hard worker and cares deeply for her students. Reading this beautiful write-up of her father I see where she gets her strong work ethic and dedication. Richard has passed on some valued traits. He sound like a wonderful man. I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending healing thoughts to Yvonne and her family.
