Hi, my name is Maria. I just wanted to let you know that I have been wearing Yamel's 911 memorial bracelet for 6 1/2 years. Today I wondered about this person and the family left behind. I pray for you and hope you are healing. I am a Trauma Nurse living in TX. May God be with you. Maria

Seven years later and it seems like yesterday..Those of us who responded on 9/11 can still feel the hurt from that day. The biggest hurt of them all was knowing that we lost our Angel..Yamel. Love you and miss you lots, SUPERSTAR!


Virginia

Irene

yamel was the only friend I had who would never jugde me no mattrer what I did.she was truly a remarkable person.As time passes she will always be remebered because of all the wonderful things she was and because of that I look forward to seeing again one day.We love you.


Irene

I know its hard for most people to believe but there is a purpose for us being here, and God had originally intended for us to keep on living in the best conditions so there is hope for the dead because God also intends to keep his promises. Yamel didnt get a chance to live her life and she has paid for all her sins because of her death so god has the book of remebrence and she is in that book.She will be one of the many that will be resurrected. The bible speaks of this day.I look forward to seeing her and many love ones who have died in the past.Until then as jesus said the dead on in a deep sleep. We love you yamel..

Memory: The Day Yamel and Gabby came back from DR.
I got a call from Yamel telling me to go to her house. I was bugging because I thought she was still in DR. She told me that she was home.. I ran down the street to see her. I remember hugging her for like and hour because I missed her so much -- I would give anything for that feeling of friendship again ...


Patty

As everyday passes I think of you of what it would be now to have you still around. Your presense is always around. I see your son grow every year and know how proud you would be of him. He is in great care now with your family. I must say I am so happy to still feel apart of your world your family welcomes me in their house as a part of the family. No one can every replace you but having your son in my life keeps all the memories of you alive. I love you dearly and miss you each and every day.


Jose Diaz, ER Clerk, St. Barnabas Hospital

I used to see Yamel at work, her being an EMT and me an ER clerk. She was always in good spirits and loved her job, being able to help people. Her family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Yamel..God Bless You. I know you're somewhere smiling down on all of us.


Kim Evans

Yamel, You are missed so much. Everytime I pass your grave I see how much you are still here. The love and the care that is put into your space. You are not and will never be forgotten. You have touched a place in your friends lives and the people that didn't even know you. We have a lot of great memories from school and I will treasure the fact that I knew a great person like you.

Jared Ring, Paramedic and Friend of Yamel

Yamel was a good friend of mine since the first day she came to work as an EMT. I best remember when her and her Son, Kevin dressed up to play Santa's Helpers for a company sponsored Toy's for Tots Cristmas party where they distributed toys to homeless children in a shelter in Westchester County, NY. Please post any memories you have of Yamel at this site. Together we will all make sure that her spirit never dies.
