    Dearest Renee, we only met you once but what a wonderful time we had, so much laughter and so much to talk about. We will always remember you for the love warmth and kindness in your heart, sleep peacefully sweetheart. It was 2009 we enjoyed that lovely time together along with Matt and Jamie ( we love you both so much ). One of those magical times you never forget. We live 4000 miles away in England but our hearts and thoughts are with you all. Forever in our thoughts xxx

    Mema was such a funny grandmother. One time Uncle matt made such a funny joke that Mema;s teeth came flying out. The whole family was laughing so hard. Were all going to miss her including me. Love you mema!

    Vinnie and I will always love you, just as I said on Saturday, Mema. I still remember being in diapers over at your house during the holidays and watching old movies with you. You used to feed us so much popcorn, I was like a teddy bear, with popcorn instead of stuffing. You even played this little weird game with me when we both pointed at eachother… Good times, I will never forget them. I love you Mema. Rest In Peace.

    What I remember most about Sylvia, is how much she loved her family. Always had such love for those Grand-boys. Her eyes sparkled with joy every time she spoke about them. Even more than they sparkled about her poker games.
    God Rest Sylvia, you fought hard.

    Dear family of Sylvia: Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. I did not know Sylvia personally but on reading her obituary and condolences I can see that she was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Death is such a tragedy for all of us and when it touches us personally, few of us find the comfort that we search for. And death itself leaves so many of us with unanswered questions. However, many have found comfort in God’s Word the Bible. The Bible teaches that soon God will swallow up death forever and wipe the tears from all faces. (Isaiah 25:8). God also promises to reunite us with our dear loved ones by means of a resurrection right here on earth and we can live life to the full in paradise that will be filled with peace, happiness and perfect health for everyone. What a wonderful hope and prospect this is. (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4; Psalms 37:10,11,29; Isaiah 33:24). As you read the above texts in your Bible, may the wonderful hope they give us along with loving memories, bring you a measure of comfort during this most difficult time. Sincerely: David Cowles
