Sylvia was a very special woman. She was strong yet sweet and wonderfully honest. She was a bright light and will be so missed.

I thank the Lord for the blessing that my sister has been to me.
Even though we did not grow up together we were always very close. I was one year old when my sister married her husband, Gene.
Gene’s military career would take my sister and her family all over the country. But my mother, Claudia Griffin, told me she never wanted me to forget that I had a big sister. Because of my mother, we would follow Ann wherever her husband’s career took her, beginning with the birth of her first child in Florida and later to Maine, New Hampshire, and California. When I came of age I would travel alone to Las Vegas and years later with my husband, Gino.
But what truly brought us closer together was the Lord, Jesus Christ. We would become prayer partners in praying for each other and our families.
There were many times that the Lord would speak to our hearts telling one of us that the other needed prayer. Ann would call me to see if I was ok and I’d call her as I could feel something was wrong.
Though our time together on this earth was brief, I praise the Lord that we will be together for eternity.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Gino and Robin.

Always felt like Mr. Turner was growling at me when we'd come by, but Mrs. Turner always calmed me down.😁 She always made us feel welcome in her home. Haven't seen her in a very long time I'm still going to miss her. Love you guys
