I met Yvette my first day of 7th grade @ Baker Jr. High - we were in the Athena program together - it wasn't long before we became very good friends - a group of us including Lori Ornelas, Belinda Delgado, Velma Rosales, Irma Ramon, Yvette and myself. We called ourselves the "Six Pack". The way she carried herself, with such grace and confidence. She was beautiful and funny and sincere. Once we got to high school, we still talked occasionally but by our senior year, we drifted apart somewhat. However, Yvette was always sweet and bubbly and her smile was magnetic. Rest in peace sweet Yvette, I cherish our memories together and thank God our paths crossed, you will be missed dear friend.
