Grandma Sylvia, you are one of the most beautiful women I will ever know, you sweet, caring, kind spirit will live forever through your girls! May you be at peace now that you are at home again with our Lord. I will never forget everything you did for me and I so wish I would have spent more time with you while I was growing up, but I lost my way several times! I am so glad I got to see you more before you moved away! You always greeted me with a big hug and smile! I will never forget you and will always love you! Thanks for always being there through my childhood, and like I said before, give Grandpa a big hug and smooch for me! <3

Dear friend I will always remember our special friendship. We have gone through so much together, the good and bad times. I will cherish all the dinners, talks, phone coversations. I have all your gifts and momentos that you have given to me through the years and everytime I look at one I will remember what a lovely person you are inside and outside. Will miss our phone calls even though they were not as often as they probably could have been but we new that we were in each others thoughts often. You are at peace now, my friend and will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sylvia was an extremely kind, soft-spoken, loving lady. She had a welcoming smile and always made you feel like you were part of her family. I ate many dinners and spent many nights, played many games and listened to many "records" at her home. I will be forever grateful for her kindness. Her "girls" were her whole world, she was an awesome mother!! God Bless Debbie, Amy and Babette in your loss, as well as the rest of the family. All the best to all of you!!

Dearest Mom..there are no words to express how much you will always be loved and missed. You have always been my best friend and mentor. My greatest comfort is that you are in a place where you can rest and have been reunited with Chic and Chris. When I am feeling alone, I will still turn to you for your unconditional love and support. You are and always be my hero. I love you Mom.
