My Dear, Dear Yoyo,
We have been friends for so long, shared so many good times and laughs, along with a few heartaches and bumps along our way.
Your Family has always treated me as though I was one of you. And am truly grateful for the love that we have all shared through the years.
I know that I will say about you the same as I say about my Mom and my Dad I will never stop missing you.

Dear family of Yolie,
Yolie’s light will never go out in our hearts. She was one of the kindest friends and walked in such goodness. The scripture in the Bible says, “The memory of the just is blessed”. Certainly we can say that of Yolie.
My heart and condolences go out to each and every family member. She loved her family so very much and I know that her love will continue in your hearts.
Blessings and love to each of you, from her friend Yvonne and in memory of Yolie’s kindness toward my mother, Evelyn, and my fur baby Angel.
My heart and condolences go out to the entire Berumen family. Yolie was such a wonderful, loving, loyal, giving friend & Godmother to the Burrola family and we will cherish the 50+ years she touched us with her love and light. I already miss her voice and presence so much but will strive to be strong and faithful like her. May we all find comfort in knowing she’s at peace.
“See ya, Yolie.” I will never forget you!
