You have my deepest sympathy for your great loss. Sylvia's grandfather and my mother were siblings. I last saw her a couple of years ago when I met her by chance in New Castle; she looked beautiful. May she rest in peace.

Even though we drifted apart in these later years of our life, we spent quite a bit of time together in our younger years. You always had a kind heart & were a hard worker. You took great care of Aunt Sue & Uncle Fuzzy(your grandparents). Love you cuz!
