Debbie, Kat, and David, I am so sorry for your loss. I will remember Sylvia fondly. I was blessed to know her, and will always remember sharing a table with her at Beth Chaverim during special events. She was a fun lady to be around, and I know she was very loved and well cared for, which is a testament to her well lived life, and the caring and love she taught each of you. May her memory live on and her good works continue through each of us that remember her.
