Dad requested in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the charity of one's choice and that each of us reaffirm our faith in God and to pray for our Country and this world amid all the strife that we are facing. Private Cremation arrangements as per family request. We especially want to thank the Agape Hospice team that took such wonderful and compassionate care of not only Dad but Mom and I as well. Much love and thanks also to Mom and Dad's home caregivers Angie Restivo and Kim Tapp for going above and beyond to see to their every need and treat them as their own family. They are such a blessing to have and be able to depend on to take care of all of us. Baumgartner Funeral Home of Pageland, SC (www.baumgartnerfh.com ) is assisting the Yarborough family.
