My condolences to Maggie. We will miss Yngvar, as he was a cheerful, sharing soul who loved to teach as well as fight. My last memory of him is at a Hunter's Moon, in Anglespur, where he'd been teaching all day, and was enjoying a day well-spent, sharing what he knew. My first memory of him is the day we spent on a temp job together. He told stories of "the good old days" of the SCA, and made the day go by quickly. --Hawk

There are very few words that can console a family during this time. Maggie - there's only time. TO the family, my condolences on your loss. And to Yvan's life - I have only great memories, 35 years of them. He was a good friend, an amazing artist, story teller (although most of them were true) I have memories - Yvan on a bike in a median, Yvan and tent up a tree - "Where's Yvan with the beer?" one late night at Roses. They do go on and on....... as will my love for him and all that he was. Good travels my brother to Valhalla. Say hello to all our friends when you get there.
