“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
