Although acquaintances through their restaurants, we always felt like family when visiting Gumbos and later, Mama Roux. What a loss for the Austin community and their family. What a love they had for the people they served, the food they served and for all. May God bless the family as they suffer through the loss of these two wonderful people. They will be missed by the many who knew them.

I have known Michael and Yoli since Gumbos on Bratten Lane and they always welcomed me into their restaurant as if it were their home at all locations. Yoli, as I type this message I recall your smile and how beautiful you were inside/out! I chuckle when I think about how many men got in trouble because they were so captivated by your beauty as you escorted them to their table!

When I moved back to the Austin area from Dallas and learned that you all had opened Mama Roux, I was so excited. It touched my heart when you remembered me after not seeing me for several years. You all had the most genuine and loving hearts as a couple. Yoli, you and Mikey are loved and missed by all that met you. I pray God blesses your family with strength, comfort and peace as they struggle to deal with the loss of two of the most beautiful people I was blessed to meet.

I was a newcommer to Mama Roux's, but was immediately impressed by the owners and their employees. It was a fantastic evening, and I will miss the Amr's friendliness and their talent for fine food. Such people deserve so much more; may they rest in peace.

I am so sad to hear about Michael and Yoli. Michael worked for me at Baby Loue's before Gumbos and he was such a wonderful employee. He delighted our customers with his talents. I send my prayers to his family.

We are so devastated at the loss of Mikey and Yoli. We were patrons of their restaurants and especially loved Mama Roux's. As my daughter said "They served heaven on a plate." We send their families our deepest condolences. The Watt Family of Austin, Tx.
