Yves, you are loved by so many here in Denver. The staff of The Pioneer will never forget your kindness and friendship, and we will miss your contagious laugh and wonderful smile. Rest In Peace, our dear friend. Have some cold Heinekens ready for us when we see you on the other side <3

I can still picture you in the back-right side of the classroom in Kigali where we spent so many days in 2009. You were so quick to learn and kind and you were always making the team laugh. I'm glad I still have this photo of you from one of my favorite memories in Rwanda, when you orchestrated the surprise birthday for Rowan. You even brought out the cake. I'll miss you and I'll never forget the times we spent together.
Rest in peace my friend

With love,

Brother you will be missed by many.
You were a great person, smart, a very hardworking one and more importantly a strong pillar to your family.
May Almighty God strengthens your family in this difficult time.
Yves, Rest in Eternal Peace.
We are all devastated.

I can't even imagine am writing this about you, you were young but i have been thinking you were strong i think i could imagine even death can resist you;
Only because since i know you in 2008,
i have seen in you a man, kind, bright, hard working, humble and above all very strong , have never seen you in panic before any situation.
Yves you have been a very good friend brother and colleague , May God receive your soul as you have been always receiving each person who needed you.

Yves am sorry i did not tell you this on time but i like you so much

Yves i will miss you

I can't believe you're gone!

You made me a better person and a competitive developer. You were such a good and comprehensive teammate! Since 2004... We shared a lot 😢😢😢

Life without you will be no more same!

I feel devastated.
