BC: Happy Birthday Yvette! Here is to 50 great years and to 50 more amazing years to come. March 9, 2014
FC: Happy 50th Birthday! Here's to the memories you've made, the lives you've touched and all your years to come.
1: The size of your heart exceeds that of any person. You give without expecting anything in return. You have a smile and laugh that will improve any persons day. You are a blessing to all the people who have you in their life.
3: My Dearest Yvette, I thank God everyday for you. You are the example God has brought to my life to show me how to live a life that is pleasing to Him. You shine God's light in so many ways which gives me hope that it is possible for a human being to do, especially for a knucklehead like me. You give me hope every day when you awake in the morning and you have a smile for everyone. Luis's wake up experience is completely different when I wake him up as your experience is full of cheerful song, unconditional love and a selfless heart. I thank God for you as you have never lost faith in me. Never!!!!!! Even though I had lost faith in myself, you have always been there to encourage me and build me up. Anyone else could have taken the opportunity to attack and express"I told you so" and "you should have known" but even though you had the justification to say it, you never did. For this I will be forever grateful. What a selfless heart you have to be able to put my needs first and your justified reaction never mentioned. I thank God for you as you were always diligent in your prayers for me and our children. You lead this family spiritually and never ceased going to God for direction and strength. Thank you for your prayers as I know that the Lord would not be in my life as He is if it was not for your prayers. Thank you for loving me so much to never give up on me! I thank God for bringing you into my life 28 years ago. I thank God for blinding you with who I was at the time and helping you see something that I was not even aware of. I must apologize to you, this time in writing, for all the that I put you through as you were doing God's work in our marriage. You are a very faithful servant of God and for this I am very grateful to God. | As God blesses us with another year of your presence, I want you to know how incredibly blessed I am and everyone who has had the opportunity to know you. You are a very special person that God has placed in this world to positively affect whoever has the benefit of encountering you. It does not have to be a long relationship as you shine your light on everyone at OCPC on your first encounter. I thank God for the blessing I receive everyday by being able to share life with you one wonderful day after another. Regardless of whatever is happening whether good or bad, you make it a wonderful day with that beautiful smile and radiating heart. I thank God for the unconditional love we have for each other. He has blessed us with the mutual desire to grow together and not apart. He has also blessed us with mutual desire to not go to bed angry with each other to allow resentment to take hold. I thank God for the beautiful wife (inside and out), friend, partner, lover, cheerleader, consultant, nurturer, and example he has blessed me with you. Happy birthday and I love you with all of me. Thank you for showing me how to love that way. God bless you my angel! Your love for life!
4: Happy 50th Birthday Mommy! I love you so much and am so happy that I have the ability to not only call you my mom but also my friend. You have helped me through so many different situations and I don't know where I would be without you. You showed me what love is by smothering me with it all the time. You showed me patience by always dealing with my shenanigans. Most importantly you have shown me what it is to be a good person. Love, Katrina
5: Happy Birthday! I love you Mom, have a very special birthday. I love everything you do for us and the constant love you bring to this family. Love, Louie
6: A mi querida hija, Yvette, gracias por ser una hija tan buena. Tambien una mama e esposa ejemplar. Muchas felicidades por 50th anos. Te queiro mucho tu mama.
7: Yvecita –there are so many things we can say about you and they are all good. You are such a beautiful person and have so many wonderful qualities. You are a fantastic mom, wife & daughter. Our son really picked the best there is and we are so grateful that you have taken such good care of him. You have always stood by your family through good and bad times. My love, enjoy what God has given you because you well deserve it. I am extremely proud that you call me “Mom”. I couldn’t ask for a better DAUGHTER! WE love you soooo very much and wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Love you always, Mom and Dad.
8: My words can not express how much Yvette means to me. So I have borrowed a poem to help me: | God has blessed my life and my families life with Ms. Yvette. I love her so incredibly much.She is the kindest, friendliest and happiest woman I know. She always has a smile on her face and her laugh is contagious. Happy Birthday my dear Friend! | If you have a special friend, You have the greatest treasure, For the devotion that she shows Will give you so much pleasure. When troubles come your way She's there to help you through; She never fails or falters In all she's asked to do. When you need encouragement She's there to cheer you on; Her faith in you is constant When other friends have gone. Of all the precious jewels The world could ever hold, To have a friend like you Is a beauty to behold.
9: To my other mother! Thank you for showing me how to drink wine, for always showing me the right paint color, for sharing your amazing decorating advice, but most importantly protecting me from evil mothers who wish me harm. Happy birthday Mrs Y-vet
10: My dearest Yvette, on this mark day of your 50th birthday, I think back that we have known each other for nearly thirty years. We have shared so many happy moments, especially when Roy Anthony and Katrina were born-we really bonded. They became true buddies. Those moments are priceless and will always be cherished. We have shared so many good times, and we have always been there for each other-vetting back and forth. You’re more than a sister-in-law to me, I have come to now and always see you as another sister. Thank you for always giving me a helping hand with computers, texting, and décor opinions. I truly appreciate your great ideas. You’re an awesome daughter, mother, wife, and you always bring our families together. May god bless you because he has blessed me with giving me such wonderful and thoughtful sister. Happy Birthday!! Love always, Mari
11: Hugs and kisses from Roy and Roy Anthony.
13: I can still remember the day I met my “sister from another mother” – big smile, a little shy (I bit that in the butt real quick!) nave, hard working, responsible an overall the perfect woman for my brother, a great addition to the family and she had a cute accent when pronouncing words with “Rs”. I prayed she enjoyed roller coaster rides cause she was in for a wild one! LOL Well, needless to say, not only did she make it through the ride but she has been able to turn it into a “kiddy” ride. Yvette, you have been there for me through good and bad times. We have experienced things that most people would never experience, but together we made it and at the end of it all smiled. We have vented so many times I’ve lost track. WE relate to so much but you have always been the “word of reason” and I truly don’t think my brother or I would have made it without you in our lives. You have taught me how to look at things differently; you have taught me that people are who they are and you can’t change them and soooo much more, I would need at least a month to write them all out and then some. Words will never express the love in my heart for you. I hope to enjoy your “duck” dance, many bottles of wine and a lot more good times with you, life has just begun! Yvette you are a beautiful person inside and out and WE are all extremely blessed to have you in our lives and I hope you will master saying “Range Rover” so you can get one. It’s just been over 5 years that your husband, my brother of course, told you, “The day you can pronounce Range Rover, I’ll get you one.” I love you Yvette and thank God that you are and will always be “MY SISTER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER” Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
14: To my sista from anotha mista and my "wine-ing" partner ... I wish you the very best for your birthday on this very special milestone ... 50 years, half a century! you haven't aged since I met you 10 years ago. You could hold the secret - it could be that you're always smiling, laughing and forgiving. thank you for always being so kind and honest with me and for being an amazing sister in law and friend. it's been a privilege to be part of your family. I hope you feel as special on your birthday as we all feel you are! I send you big hugs and lots of love! xoxo Carolyn

20: My Dear Friend Yvette, As far back as I can remember our friendship started when you lived across from me on the other side of 168St. The kindness that you showed from the very beginning and your beautiful smile is what drew me to your friendship. The joy of your personality and having such a warm heart is what makes you so approachable. Through the years we have shared so many different experiences that have made our friendship like family. I thank God for having sent me a friend like you! I carry with me so many wonderful memories of times we've shared together. The Parties, Revolve, our field trips together, concerts we've been to, Woman of Faith, more Parties, the trip to Orlando, the long rides to Jeanette's house and to Sonia's house and venting out all our frustrations in the car, our children, our husbands ,and our all girls lunches. I pray we will continue this journey in life and that God allows us to share many more. I Love You mi amiguita! Happy 50th Birthday! Martha

23: Yvette- Happy Birthday! I know that we haven't known each other long but I am so thankful that we became friends. Your friendship means a lot to me, it is special, just like you! | Everyone getting older - everyone moving on to the next stages of their lives. I hope our friendship only grows stronger and we can share some of these new experiences. Relax and enjoy this birthday you deserve it! You're aging to perfection keep up the good work! Love always, Kris | Thanks for your ear - when I needed to vent, your shoulder when I needed a wet, hug and your advice when I needed to see reason. I am blessed to have you as a friend.

25: Jimmy and I met Yvette 14 years ago after meeting Luis. Her kind and gentle demeanor was the polar opposite of her other half!! Don't get us wrong, we love Luis just as much, but he needs to thank his lucky stars every day for Yvette!! No matter what happens, Yvette is a calming force. Her smile brightens us and her positive attitude towards life is contagious. She is the heart and soul of the Carrillo family and we are honored to call her a very dear friend. We value her friendship because friendship isn't a big thing, it's a million little things! Viv
26: Happy 50th Birthday Yvette! I remember the 1st day I met you it was your 2nd day at work remember I don’t do Mondays...and Ray brought you over to meet me. I remember thinking,” she dresses way too nice, I need to step up my game”. But you finally got the picture and jeans became your friend on more than one day a week.I know you know what a blessing you are to OCPC, but I just want you to know what a blessing you are to me. I am so thankful for your friendship. You make me smile even on days that I feel like I want to cry. You are my sounding board when I want to scream, not only about work, but about my personal life. I am blessed to call you a sister in Christ and to study His word with you. I am thankful that our girls are friends and that we can share Tally games together. I am thankful for you sharing your hairdresser and for Cuban coffee calls! LOL .
27: I am mostly thankful for your unconditional and non judgmental friendship. That kind of friend is not easy to find. I pray for many more years together here at OCPC and that our friendship continues to grow. I love you my friend. Happy Birthday and I pray that your day is as special as you. xoxo Jan
28: Happy Birthday Lots of good memories and more to come! Here is something for you to remember "old age is ALWAYS somebody who is 15 years older than you" It is a good one to remember just like the one we got from you 30 years ago - " don't go where you are not supposed to go" Love you, Fritz and Sydnee
