Hey Uncle, I can't believe it's been 4 years since you've passed away. I still miss you. I hope that you and Papa are having fun up there. I love you both!

In less than an hour will mark two years of your passing and I still find it hard to believe. I still haven't been able to erase your name and number from my phone. I miss you and will always love you. At least you have Papa keeping you company. Hopefully Papa is not running you crazy with Checkers and Cards. Love Chandra

I can't believe it has been a year. Sylvester was such a nice person, I remember his smile in church. He was such a proud father when Kendall was born, and he loved his wife. I know that your wife and son have missed you so much but I know that God needed you more. Love you always Brother Rice.

I was so sorry to hear of Sylvesters passing. I thought he was such a nice man. I admired the love I saw between the two of you anyone could see that you both loved each other so much. I know that God will comfort your family until they meet you again in heaven. I also look forward to seeing you again. It was my pleasure to have known you at Reeds Temple COGIC.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I was Kendall's teacher until a few weeks ago. Sylvester was always so nice & one of the best parents at Sonshine! He will be missed!!!

We only met once and spoke 2 or 3 times, but sometimes thats all it takes for people to "connect". My heart is saddened, yet I know that God has a special place for every one of His devotees. May God comfort the family and embrace them with His Mercy.

I am a friend and co-worker of Sylvester's, and I wanted to express my deepest condolences to his family. He was such a sweet man, and I am blessed to have gotten to know him as well as I did. I will miss him so very much. If there is any way someone would be able to post when his funeral arrangements will be taking place, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, so sorry for your loss.

Okay tears falling, I will miss your corny jokes & that Mr. Rice walk, I hope you know I loved you like you were my own brother, so until we meet again, rest peacefully<3<3

Hey brother I can't stop crying cause i'm missing you dearly and you will forever be in my heart. We have been blessed for many years of not losing a love one this close to us since our grandma died back in the 80's but now God has called you home to be with his other angels and for that i'm not mad at him at all because he's making sure you have no more suffering, R.I.P Brother Love You!
