Condolence From: Charles I. Nero
Condolence: Dear Family, I was touched by Yvette's generosity, kindness, and genuine passion for learning. She was so kind to organize a shower for me and my family upon the arrival of our son. I participated often in her Lunch and Learn programs at Bates College. I am so blessed that Yvette was in my life. My deepest condolences to you from Charles Nero and Baltasar Fra-Molinero, and our sons Carlos and Bernardo.

Condolence: Yvette meant so much to me. She never said no to a request though I think we sometimes asked much too much of us. The English Department could not have functioned without her and was a better place because of her.

Condolence: We are so saddened by the loss our friend, Yvette. She was one of the kindest people we ever knew. She taught me how to be a patient mother -by example. She helped us through a painful :empty nest stage"n We'll remember her and Paul as we experienced a great trip to Australia together. Thank God for the blessing of this lovely lady in our lives.
