To my Loving half sister,
I am still in disbelief to hear of your passing. Although we had loss touch over the years, we shared so many special moments as kids and young adults. Your strength, perseverance, and gentle spirit speak volumes and will surely be missed by the many lives you have touched. I pray that you are now at peace and resting with the Almighty above. I pray for our family and extended family as we go through the healing process of such a sad and heartfelt loss. fbb

Yvette, true servant of the Creator, spent precious moments of her life empowering others... her impact on my life will never be forgotten. Our days in seminary together and our travels abroad were all special because of her love for God and her love for people. Proper manners prompt me to say thank you, Yvette, for living your life out loud so that others might hear God’s voice. Rest now good and faithful servant of God... Asé

Yvette, we shared some great times together. You touched many lives and I can say you brought joy and laughter to mine. You never knew a stranger and cared deeply for the ones you loved. Love you always and you will be missed.

You will always be my seminary buddy. We spent so many hours laughing and talking. I still can see your big smile. I look forward to seeing you again.

She was my Soror and my spiritual sister. We traveled to Egypt together. She was my husband Carl’s best friend. I’m in total shock. She loved people and she loved God. The world will be so much dimmer without her bright light shining.
