I will never forget Aunt Sylvan's sweet spirit and loving nature. She always made listening to family stories interesting and often times funny. I will always have wonderful memories of her and she will always have a special place in my heart. What a glorious reunion she's having in Heaven surrounded by our Savior, Jesus Christ, family and friends. What a blessing it was for me to know her and love her. My prayers go out to family during this time of her passing. I know how much she meant to all of you and how much you loved her. God bless you all.
