Aunt Sylvia you are more than an Aunt to me, you are a Mother and you have always treated me as a Son. Our private talks and advice went both ways and always remained private. I could tell you anything and it stayed right there and the same with me. I'm so very glad that my little sisters gave me all the time I needed to talk with you and love on you and just be there. Although very hard to let you go I know that you were ready with no unfinished business and you have shown us all that if you lean and depend on the Master he will see you through. The hospice angel told me that when you transioned to Glory such grace and dignity she had never seen before and I replied that is because she is a Queen. Our Queen. Till we meet again, I love you, Goodnight
