There are several nieces and nephews that will miss her very much.

When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s Plan,
A step on the road home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.

    I'm so very sorry to hear of Sylvia's death. She was a delightful lady, dedicated mother and wife and always treated me with kindness. She will be sorely missed.

    Dennis, Gena and Melissa and family,
    Prayers for all of you during this difficult time.
    I have cherished memories of all of you and especially Sylvia.
    I remember most famously the days at Pizza Villa where I worked for probably 7 or 8 yrs.
    Great times and good memories. I remember when Dennis and Sylvia met and started dating, wow, where did 38 yrs go?!?
    We were almost like family back then, and I pray for you as family now. Would love to touch base soon and talk of cherished memories.
    Love you all.

    An Angel to our Heavenly Father making a way for family to join her in years to come. New body, no pain, just love. What a glorious picture. Love and condolences to the family.

  4. Betty Miller Webb says:

    Dear Dennis, Gena, Melissa, and family,
    I loved my little sister so much. We shared a room when we were little. I was a big sister to Sylvia and David. We used to play fun games like Hide and Seek and Red Rover. At one of our houses, we had Walnut and Hickory Nut trees. It was fun to collect the nuts. As adults, we lived miles apart, but we tried to stay in touch with notes, e-mail, and phone calls. There will always be a big hole in my heart. I can't believe she is gone. I know the Lord has welcomed her into our everlasting home.
