Ms Sybil was our neighbor in Cahokia from when we moved from St. Louis around 1971-72 on up to 1990. She was a dear friend to my Mama (we lost my Dad in 1980) and always there to lend an ear and helping hand...she cared for me at age 5 after my mom had her mastectomy until my Dad would get home from work..the endless amounts of things they bought from me for school fundraisers, and the emotional support when my mom got cancer again in 1984, these are things that could never be repaid...she always had the biggest heart and everything was done out of love. You have more than earned your wings sweet lady..
