Dear Family of Yolie,

I was so sad to read of Yolie’s death.  I always remember her great smile and laugh.  I am 72 years old, but remember when I was little she was my favorite babysitter.
You probably don’t remember me, but I am Dolores, your second cousin whose Father was Joe Costarella—your mother’s uncle who used to have Santa Claus come visit with gifts when you were young.
Of all of you, I remember Stanley best. I want you all to know, that Yolie is in my thoughts and prayers, as are all of you.
With sympathy,
Dolores (Costarella) and Angelo Costanzo, 35 South Penn St. Shippensburg, PA 17257

Dearest Steve, Stan, Phil & Mike,

We send our condolences, as well as love and prayer, to your family in your time of need.  We will miss Mom (Yolanda) greatly, and may she watch over you from Heaven with our almighty Lord.  May God bless all of you and your family.

With love & prayer,

I am so thankful for the wonderful weekend I was able to spend with Nanny last week. It meant the world to me and I am so sad that I was not in Lancaster today. I will miss Nanny so much and will always remember what a great grandmother she was to me. I am so lucky to have so many precious memories with Nanny growing up. I love you Nanny always.

Dear Caterbone Family,our mother Josephine Segro Caterbone was very good friends with your mother. Yolie had a wonderful smile and was always very nice to all of us. I can remember my dad calling her Yol. We all have special memories of her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

The Joseph and Josephine Caterbone Family

Steve, Stan, Phil, Mike.  
What can I say?  I loved your mom – she helped me so much, gave me my first job at the Dry Cleaners with Janet.   Then hired me to babysit the younger sons  – and was so patient with me while I learned how to deal with a gaggle of rowdy boys – and just how much you all ate!   I have such fond memories of those years on Fremont St.  Yolie was a strong and vibrant person, way ahead of her time by running a family and a business back when not many women were doing that.  Be proud of her and remember all the good times, nothing can ever replace those memories. 
Thinking of you, & Love you all

Hi Phil and the Caterbone Family,
You will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this time. We are sorry we will not be able to attend the services but you will all be in our hearts. May the comfort of the Lord surround you and your family.
Lisa and frank Sahd

So sorry to learn of your loss.  I remember your mom well from our days at F&M and no matter where I ran into her afterwards, she always had a smile for me.    It is never easy to say good bye to those we love, but please take comfort in the prayers and condolences from your friends and family — we all share the same journey.

Charlie Heisey

Stan and Brothers:

I was sorry to learn of the loss of your mom.  I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.   May the Lord bring you comfort and healing of this sadness as time passes. 

With Sympathy and my prayers for you,
