I had the profound pleasure of meeting Sylvia and taking care of her until her last day here on earth. I praise God that she got her wings, is singing and dancing with loved ones that have passed before and she is in no more pain or suffering. She had the sweetest smile and the cutest way of saying hello. She had also raised two incredible children. Vanessa with her sweet smile an amazing stories she shared with me of her mom; and then there is Ken. Ken is a man of few words, but such a man with such strength and love. I’m always here for you both. I loved your mom and I love you guys.
