We are very sorry for your loss. Yana was a sweet girl. I remember her riding her bike around the neighborhood without a care in the world. May she rest in peace. God bless her children.

To the Guitson family, I am so sorry your your loss. Yana and I were best friends growing up as we went to the YMCA together. I remember all of the days I spent at your house and the days she spent at mine. She was a beautiful kind soul and the world won’t be the same without her. I will pray for you guys and her sweet daughters. I think of you all often.

I was a good friend of hers and I live in Philadelphia. I was going to come and visit with her on 8/16/21 as I had promised to. I contacted her on 8/13/21 to see if that was in fact a good day, and then I found out what happened. I am wondering if there are going to be services or if there is anything I can do for her kids. Yana had a very high opinion of me and if I can help in any way I would be honored to do so. I am extremely sad that she is gone and beside myself with grief. My email is davidgorko@gmail.com. Thank you.
