“As you can imagine it is difficult for her to comprehend everything that has happened as well as everything that needs to be done. We will follow Yuna’s lead on when she needs our help and I know that her work family will love and support her through this,” Oswald said.
We know that many of you in this tight-knit community adore Yuna as much as we do. We know she’s part of your lives every morning. However, we ask that you respect her privacy as she grieves with her family.
