So sorry to hear of Miss Sylvia's passing. I remember her most when we lived across the street from her on Field St. She was always so funny and made us laugh all the time. We moved away when I was 15 years old but we always talk about all of us kids playing together. Just wanted you all to know how sorry we are. The Romero sisters Patsy - Linda - Connie - Donna and Mother Elsie.

My heart goes out to the family. Sylvia meant so much to me. I loved to visit with her and of course her baby(Princess). I know she is not suffering anymore and is telling everyone in heaven about all her family. Love all of you and will be praying for your comfort.
