Yingluck will be forever in our hearts...

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Yingluck Bender, 33, born on January 20, 1981 and passed away on November 11, 2014. We will remember her forever.

Yingluck lived her life truly and abundantly. A loving and generous, joyful and sweet spirit, she exemplified compassion and dedication. The way she served and loved her family and friends inspired others to do the same. To be with her was to share that joy, and her hospitality was to be admired.

Yingluck has loved so many special family members and friends from all around the world, and she treated each one with the same pleasant disposition, dignity, and respect. She had an adventurous, outgoing attitude exemplified in her willingness to move to another country and learn another language- she truly understood the universal language of kindness.

Yingluck left a big footprint in this life, and we will miss her and her beautiful smile always.

"Happy Birthday my dear friend."

"Dear Bender family, it has taken me this long to convey my message and choose my words carefully. Yingluck was like a gentle light that lit up our camp. Although we knew her only a short time we were all touched by her spirit. She was always the first to volunteer and help. It was her way to be warm and kind even when things were difficult. We all walked away a little happier after speaking with her. Our camp won't be the same without seeing her ride her bicycle or tasting one of her delicious meals. But we will remember her spirit through Samantha and Steven, who are both lucky enough to have her smile. This is her gift to us."

"Sean, you don't need us to tell you what a beautiful woman Yingluck was.  She was always so smiley and happy, with a generosity that truly came from her heart.  From the moment she arrived in Nigeria, she was present and offering to do whatever she could to help in whatever way possible.  Her love for her children, and the joy and pride they brought her, was evident in everything she did.  I hope that your wonderful memories, and ours, of time spent with Yingluck will bring you, Steven and Samantha some comfort during this difficult time.  We are all better people for having known her and we will miss her greatly."
