Keith my prayers are with you and the rest of the family. I went to school with Sylvia and she was one of the sweetest people I knew. She loved The Lord. Your grandmother, Margaret, used to sit with my sister and was such a big help to my mom. My prayers with her also. Lean on The Lord and he will see you through.
