I met Sylvia and John while working at Randy Smith's accounting office. I enjoyed the monthly visits of Sylvia when dropping off the business books. I did not know John as well but did visit his office with Randy when returning the books. He was a quiet soul but always caring. Sylvia had such a sparkling personality bringing much joy to the office.

I am sorry for your loss.
