Auntie Sylvia had a captivating life and I feel lucky to have been a part of it. I just wanted to share something from the last time I saw her.
One part of her charm I came to expect and will now miss, were her comments regarding my appearance. True to form, even towards her final moments she was able to focus her mind to comment on my newly acquired stubble. "What's this growth on your face? " she enquired, followed shortly by " I don't like it".
Remembering this moment brings me a smile every time.

The thing I remember most about Auntie Sylv was her ever-present camera! She'd always be videoing something.
I offer my sincere condolences to those who are touched by her passing. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) We have the hope that comes from knowing that Sylvia is now in heaven with Christ Himself.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Sylvia's family and friends, especially John & Cynthia, brother John, and dear Megan.
We rejoice that she is with her Lord and Saviour and we grieve with those who now have a hole in their lives and hearts because of Sylvia's passing. We are so thankful for the people who cared for Sylvia in these last difficult years.
May God bless you for your faithfulness in serving Sylvia in this way.
