Dear George & Family,
Kent and I share in the sorrow of your wife/mother’s passing.
I always admired Sylvia when I would see her at Prince of Peace Church. She had a beautiful smile. We both shared the same birthday date ~ November 27.
May the wonderful memories of special times you shared together come flooding back as you get through the grieving process.
Blessings and Love,
Priscilla & Kent Wyman
