The loss of the matriarch is often hard to understand but the bible tells us: Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. It was a pleasure to know and work with a Real Lady, who impacted the life of many. Cheer On!

My condolences to Sylvia's family. She was truly full of life. I worked with her in the early Vistakon days and she impacted my life and the lives of many. Sylvia is the only person that could tell me my strength was my weakness and I knew it was without malice. I can only imagine the other life lessons she gave and wisdom passed on. She will truly be missed
