    I worked as a caregiver for Bill and Sylvia both. They are both extraordinary people. They took me in as one of their own. My heart is broken at the thought of their absence. They will be missed greatly. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Sylvia was such a lovely woman. Always cutting up and joking around. So down to earth. She and Bill will be sorely missed. Prayers for the family and friends who will miss her smile, kindness, and spirit. Rest in peace, Sylvia.

    I miss my Forever Friend. Who can I call when I have happy, sad, or new news to share? How many times have we shared secrets, and solved the problems of the world? Everything could be solved wearing Princess Rule pink glittery nail polish and a yellow handbag.
    Oh the books we reviewed, funny how we liked the same ones. I will miss you so much. We may not have spoken every day, like in high school, but even if it was a month we would pick up where we left off on our last conversation.
    Everyone said we both spoke to fast, but how else could we get all our thoughts in a short time. We could understand each other and that was good enough.
    After our sometimes hour long talks we would end our calls with,”I love you” and we truly meant that. I will miss you but understand the pain is gone now and am happy for you. My Forever Friend, I love you , will always miss you, until we can talk again. Becky.
    Paul and John I wish you could have know the carefree, young part of your mother, like I did. I hope I was able to give you some of that insight. I am sorry I will not be there to share your loss, but I will have your mother and you both in my heart. Becky

    I lost a great friend in Sylvia. She was always there to help me when my wife, Sue, was ill and undergoing chemo. I hope Sylvia’s family will gain comfort knowing she helped me and others in our time of grief.

    I was Sylvia’s housekeeper for 5 years. I will miss her very much as we had very interesting conversation on various subjects. I learned a lot of things from her such as helpful hints and cooking ideas. As many have said, she was the most organized person I have ever met. She was the greatest caregiver to her husband and I believe she thought everyone that ever did any thing for her in her words was “gooder than an angel.”

    Charlie and I send our prayers your way. Your mother was a special lady.
