    Dear family, you have my heartfelt condolences. May God the Father of tender mercies (Psalm 83:18) strengthen you all during this difficult time and may your cherished memories comfort you as you await His loving provision when you may be reunited again with your dear loved one again (John 5:28,29).

    I just wanted to say thank you Aunt Sylvia , You always gave yourself and your time to everyone else pretty most of your life. Every summer we came to visit for a week or two and you were always offering to cook such wondering meals for us and you made me and my sister feel like one of your own daughters while we were there for our visit with the family . You always made us feel loved and welcome. You will always be in my heart and cherished memories forever. My condolences to all of my aunts, uncles,and cousins, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless…
