I had the great honor of working with Sylvia at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center. She was a funny, kind and very dear friend. Her sense of humor made my working days seem so much better. I will always hold on to the precious memories she left me. My sympathy to her family at this diffcult time. Please know she touched many lives during her time here. God bless you all.
