    Sandra, the kids and I were saddened by her passing. We can all live with the joy that we will all be reunited in glory because Sylvia accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. We will continue to pray that the Holy Spirit give you peace and fill the void left by her absence. Please call if we can ever be of assistance.

    My deepest condolences to the family. Sylvia and I were very good friends in high school at Hanna. I left Brownsville in 1984 but I never forgot her and what a wonderful, kind, and fun person she was. God bless you.
