My heart goes to Rick, John, Steve, and Victor’s families. May you get through this challenging time through prayers and the comfort of family and friends.
Sylvia was always a special part of our lives at family events and gatherings. From when I was little, I will never forget Sylvia with a camera in hand, gathering photo shoots of family memories.
Sylvia was a mentor, a confident friend to the younger cousin with wishful insights, and someone on whose love you could always depend, and she brought a thoughtful way of living and happiness to everyone’s day.
May the most precious memories of Sylvia’s life bring comfort and peace. When you talk about the kind and fun person she was, may you feel prouder than ever. And when you hear all the stories people tell about her, may it bring an even richer understanding of how much you’re Mom meant to everyone lucky enough to know her.
Sending warm and caring thoughts, with the deepest sympathy. Hugs to all of you.
