    I can’t tell of you how sorry I am of the loss your Mom. She was more to me than a friends Mom. She became my kids Nana when they needed one. She will be greatly missed. My only regret is I didn’t get to see her before her passing. Love you Sylvia.

    What a wonderful tribute to Aunt Sylvia. The room at Folsom was full will family and friends telling stories they had about her and about growing up with each other. The funeral mass was beautiful. Tylah’s and Andy’s poem were heart felt. Ricky, Pam, Uncle Hank, and cousin Debbie spoke about Sylvia and described her perfectly. The bereavement meal and gathering after the services would have made her proud. She would have loved bopping around talking to everyone. Will miss talking and laughing with you, ‘Sylvia’. I now you are resting in peace.
