Dear Lee, Mike, Jerry Sr., Jerry, Jackie & Family, Our deepest sympathy is extended to all of you for Sylvia's passing. May she rest in peace now in Heaven. She was a very "special" lady and "dear" friend to us. We've been friends ever since our son Mike & Lee were married. We worked together at Crossing the Jordan Clinic for about 5 years. She was a pleasant person to work with. We worked hard, but had lots of fun, too. She was a very intelligent lady and I learned a lot from her. There just aren't enough words to express what a great warm-hearted person she was. She will truly be missed. Love & Thoughts, Al & Elaine

I am so sorry to hear of your mothers death. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting her a few times, I was impressed by her Grace and kindness. She was a wonderful person and I am sure she will be sorely missed by all that knew her. Please give your dad (my big brother) a hug for me. I had hoped to fly out to visit with them, but unfortunately I fell last January and broke my hip bone. While in a nursing home I had a stroke. I am still taking physical therapy and hope to finally recover before long. Again you have my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your mother. Lots of love, Your uncle Fred
