    There are no words for a sadness so deep. No answers for questions that keep us spinning in a world of confusion. Anne, I will hold you on heart and in my prayers. Peace will be elusive, but in time I hope that your faith, friends and family will lift you up and hold you safe while you take each small step forward in your journey to acceptance.

    There are many wonderful people that you meet in life and Sylvia was one of those people. I remember her as a sweet and beautiful little girl. I will always remember her that way. May she forever lovingly live in your hearts. Peace.

    I have such fond memories of Sylvia as a Kindergartener in my class. She always had twinkle in her eyes and was joyful and sweet. Her smile was beautiful, lighting up her whole face. I will always remember her as a bright little soul. Though it was tremendously sad, her funeral was beautiful. I was moved to tears with the music, the meaningful lyrics and the heartfelt euloguies. God Bless you Sylvie and all who loved you.

    Sweetness and compassion personified. We will pass on her good heartedness as she would’ve perhaps wanted with a donation to a community mental health effort.
