Messages of Condolence

  1. Dear Gloria,
    Your Mom is in some of my fondest childhood memories…those kid days running between the houses…sampling your Mom’s cookies! She always had a twinkle in her eye and a ready smile. My sympathy to you and all your family.

  2. Dear Gloria and Family,
    I was so saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. I have such fond memories of Sylvia! She was the sweetest woman and a dear friend of my mom’s. When I was quite young, I painted her a Christmas sweatshirt and every year she would wear it and recall that I had made it for her. Even some 10 or more years later, when I would run in to her, she said that she still had it and would always comment on it. It always made me feel great to think that she thought so much of a simple gift. Sylvia will be greatly missed but she certainly will be very fondly remembered by us all. She always held a special place in my heart for she was a special lady!
    My sincerest sympathy to you all,
    Evelyn Vleck

  3. Dear Gloria and Family~

    If the dictionary needed a picture next to the word “Lady” to illustrate the definition, your mom’s picture would most certainly be there! Always so full of grace, compassion and laughter (awesome cook too). A truly wonderful LADY. I am honored to have known her. My prayers are with all of you.

  4. Gloria, Ross & family,
    May the many happy memories you have help you through this difficult time. Thinking of you, and keeping you in our prayers.

    Rich, Marleen, Mike , Stephanie & Logan

  5. Dear Gloria,
    What wonderful memories I have of your Mom (& Dad, too). Your mom was never too busy to make her delicious lasagna, (my FAV), for us and she always let me help weed the garden and pick beets. I especially remember her trying to teach me how to make apricot stars at the holidays. Try as I might, they did not even come close to hers. She was one of a kind and a great friend to my Aunt and my Mom & Dad. My sympathies to you and your lovely family.

  6. Dear Trebets Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses we see find a wonderful hope for the future in which the causes we now have for suffering will no longer exist. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well.


  7. Dear Gloria,Ross and Girls. I will miss your Mom terribly, she was so much a part of my life, always ready to listen and comfort me when I needed comforting. She was a very gentle, caring, giving lady. May you feel comfort remembering all the good times.

  8. Dear Gloria and Family,
    I forgot to mention in my earlier post that my mom, dad and I will be donating to the hospice in Sylvia’s name. I wanted to let you know that she meant a great deal to us and thought that this would be the best way to honor her.
    It is clear from all of the comments here that your mom was truly loved by many and will be missed by all.

  9. Thank you to all of you who have posted your kind and comforting comments about my Mom. It warms my heart to know that she was loved and appreciated by so many. Thank you!–Gloria
