By the time Yuuko dies, they already share a deep and understanding bond that is quite ambiguous to most fans. Even though it becomes obvious that they love each other, it is not explicitly shown whether it is the love of two friends or that of lovers.

She, Doumeki and Watanuki were friends, but her mother forbade her from playing with them because she was too busy using her daughter and forcing her to attend various supernatural shows and meetings, during which she would show off her medium powers and her mother would get money in exchange.
However, her mother treats her so badly that she gets taken away to Oba-chan's home where the two of them visit her all the time. Kohane and Doumeki become closer when he tells her in secret why he became friends with Watanuki and she calls him very brave and kind. That is the moment when a bond is formed between them, and they become good friends. Ten years after Yuuko's death, they meet again because she is studying folklore at the university at which he is working as a professor.
They eventually marry and have children who will go on to become Watanuki's assistants in the shop. Yuuko and Clow's relationship is quite ambiguous.

She also loves alcohol, which traduces in sending Watanuki to the drugstore every time she's got a hangover. Towards close friends, Yuko shows a very different side of herself than when she is with a customer. With close friends like Oba-chan or Watanuki, she is kinder and more open to them. She shares more opinions and thoughts with them.
Though she is close with her friends, she still keeps serious feelings to herself, not wanting to burden others with her serious problems. We, as readers see these unmentioned or hidden thoughts through monologues by Yuko when she is alone. Many of these hidden worries are not revealed to other characters such as Watanuki even after she dies as she never reveals it to them.
Also, even though Yuko is sometimes open about her feelings towards others telling Watanuki that she is happy that he is at the shopreaders can see that most of the time, her feelings go unsaid. The reason to why Yuko hides her feelings from others is unknown but it is thought to be because she doesn't want to get hurt or too attached, mostly because she knows that one day she will vanish. As the plot advances, we can see that she sometimes acts immature to keep Watanuki from realizing the gravity of the situation around him.
She is a dealer in wishes as she will grant the sincere wish of anyone who is willing to make an appropriate sacrifice in return; the price is always equivalent to the weight of the wish, no more, no less. In the case of Watanuki Kimihirowho sought to be rid of the evil spirits that plague him, the price was a long period of frequently demeaning servitude. As a result, she now has Watanuki as a sort of "personal assistant" to clean, cook, and perform other tasks she considers beneath her.
She keeps Watanuki close and searches for him whenever he's in trouble in order to protect him. This is a connection she shares with Doumeki who's always by his side in the hardest moments due to his ability for exorcism.

You cannot read what the letter says but it shows that Yuko sometimes writes letters to Oba-chan and that Oba-chan likes Yuko so much as a friend that she keeps her letters as a reminder of her in her home.
Oba-chan is also the only person in the entire manga that calls Yuko "Yuko-chan.
