Dear Elaine, Marty, Jeffrey and Cousins, my deepest sympathies are with you at this difficult time as you mourn the loss of your dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother Sylvia. Sylvia will forever live in my heart as the wonderful, kind and caring Aunt that she was to me and loving sister that she was to my mom. Her wonderful smile and joyfulness in life will live on through all of you. Though I can't be with you at this time, my love and thoughts are with you all. Much love to you, Cousins Lauren and David.
