Melvin, Bonnie, Barbara and Paul - my deepest sympathies on the passing of your mom. I have many fond memories of spending time with your family. Auntie Sylvie was always smiling and happy, I don't think I ever saw her mad.

Auntie Sylvie may you rest in peace and watch over your family, which I know you will. I may not be with everyone today but you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Love always, Kathy (Cuff) Malay
