Mikey and Yoli Amr
"Lord make me an instrument of you peace; where there is hatred let me sow love: where there is injury pardon; where there is doubt faith; where there is despair hope; where there is darkness light; and where there is sadness joy. O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life." Mikey and Yoli Amr, of Round Rock, passed away on February 23, 2011. They were the founders of Gumbo's and owners of Mama Roux's. They were happily married for over 25 years. He is survived by his parents Mohammed and Wadhad Amr. They are also survived by six siblings; Tsair Amr, Riyad Amr, Niele Amr, Mona Amr, Elibeth Cordoba, and Maria Claudia Cuartas Cordoba: nine nieces and nephews; Murad Amr, Jamile Amr, Robyn Amr, Heather Amr, Lucia Cordoba, Monica Cordoba, Liliana Cordoba, Alyia Kevan, and Christina Johnson. They are also survived by their furry children Mona Lisa, Twinkie and Sheba. They enjoyed good cuisine, good company, their families' travels around the U.S., and assisting with humanitarian efforts wherever needed.
