Russell, know how you must be grieving for dear, sweet Sylvia. Thinking and praying for you. Remember the good times like when you, Sylvia, Austin, Peggy, Thaxton, Marie and I got together. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you.

Russell and Family, Sorry to hear of your loss, Sylvia always had a beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God leaving loneliness and sadness. Our fond memories of her in our hearts will keep us moving on in life. I enjoyed working with Sylvia at Murdoch Center. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sylvia was my beloved friend, beginning with C.G. Credle School [3rd grade] to the day, 5-29-2018, that she slipped away to live in heaven with Jesus. She brought so much laughter, joy, smiles, and fun to my life but also had a careful, loving and intent listening ear for all my cares. Sylvia and I used to write notes to each other at night when we were in 3rd and 4th grades to give the other the next school day. She always made my days brighter and lighter and I love her like a sister.

Russell & Family, I cherished the days that me and Sylvia worked in Alpine Cottage. She was loved by not only the employees but loved by so many individuals that she worked with. My heart goes out to you Russell. I know how much Sylvia loved you. Just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
