In Memoriam

AMODEO – YVONNE, née Ellul Sullivan (1922-2002). Our last memory of our mother is the wonderful Christmas she orchestrated in her usual bountiful style. Twenty years ago, we all went to bed thanking her and our lucky stars that, once again, we had an unforgettable Christmas. Little did we know how devastatingly unforgettable it would be. Yvonne did not make it to Boxing Day. Twenty years have done nothing to temper our love, our melancholy and our will to make yet another Christmas without our parents as beautiful and peaceful as they would have loved it to be. Yes, both of them were adept at making Christmas a perfect day. May they rest in peace and love. Muffy, Patricia and Francesca.
