“Sylvia, you were a gem! Thank you for taking me in and allowing me to stay with you and Tom during my confusion state. I remember you up early (at 5:00 a.m.) to put on your makeup. It was always so perfect. Thank you for your support, understanding and non-judgement. You were a wonderful person. Much love. ” - Leslie Wagner-Wilson

“RIP SYLVIA, YOU DEFINITELY LEFT AN INDELIBLE MARK IN MY LIFE WHEN YOU ACCEPTED ME IN YOUR HOME. YOU WERE A GREAT WOMAN! I REGRET NOT HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DID FOR ME. GONE BUT NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN. LOVE ALWAYS MISSY (SHIRLETHA HOLMES) ” - Shirletha Holmes-Boxx
