Precious family, I just now saw this obituary for my sweet friend, Sylvia. She was the first young person I met when my family moved to Meadow in 1954. My ad, Rev. Niles Compton was the new pastor there. I loved her, and many others in our church. We all went to school together. Sylvia was always beautiful to me and I envied her talent at the organ. So many memories. Sweet family, know that I am continuing to pray for you all. God bless you. My Daddy & Mommy will be happy to see her in Heaven. Love you all.
