Gary and Naomi what can i say. Sylvia was a great lady, kind, always had a smile.

I remember when she tried to calm my nerves when your Dad was teaching my Robbie how to drive!

She was always there to help get the communion ready to be served or do things for Bible School.

I couldn’t come down because i would have fell apart; I’ve just been diagnosed with cancer and I really don’t think i would have held up very well.

God will be with you if you let him and know Mom is happy to be with Paul and the Lord.

When I was a child, I looked forward to staying at Aunt Sylvia’s house. Many summers I brought a friend and she had to put up with both of us! Her patience was amazing. When her sister my mom passed in 2006, Sylvia, Gary, and the whole family were there for me. I don’t know how I would have gotten through it without them and I know they have no idea how much comfort they were to me. After that, Sylvia and I would talk on the phone. She would listen to me, try and comfort me, and sometimes she would even cry with me. I feel like I lost another part of mom. I take comfort in knowing they’re together with the Lord. Sylvia told me that after mom died, she would often reach for the phone to call her–I now know how she felt. My thoughts and prayers are with her very loving family. I love you all. Sherry
