Our thoughts are with your family. We were lucky to have had our children grow up with yours and sharing the basketball games with the boys. I will always remember the many lunches Sylvia and I had together on Central Street. We shared many good times together, thanks to Sylvia,you and the boys and Elizabeth.

Our deepest sympathy to Sylvia's husband and sister & families. Our family lived near their community and my wife and I attended Abilene High School at the same time as Sylvia. I remember Nancy and Sylvia combining wheat years ago. Know they still enjoyed spending time together vacationing on their Kansas land.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We were honored to know Phil, Faye, Nancy and Sylvia when we grew up down the road a few miles from them. In the middle of no where!!! But what memories we have and those are forever.

We will miss you, Sylvia. You brought to us such strength, wisdom, insight, elegance, and good cheer, even when the going was really tough. I am grateful that I got to know you, through the Ovarian Group and meditating with Carl at the Cancer Wellness Center, and I grieve your loss. My sympathies go out to your husband and all of your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss. I know it is difficult to say goodbye to someone so important in your life but I know the strength and love she has passed on to each one of you will be a lasting testament of a life well lived.
