Our family wishes to offer its condolences to Ms. Sylvia's family. She and her husband were such good people. I remember their store on GA247 across from the old Weis Drive-In. They used to come to the feed store where I worked. I remember when Ms. Sylvia won the RV in a radio contest several years back. May God be with her family.
