    I am just seeing this so I do not know if anyone will see this but Sylvia will know. I have many memories of sitting with her and watching TV, listening to her fuss at my dad about something stupid and her brushing my hair. After losing Dad I have had no communication with that side of the family but know that you all carry a special place in my heart. I will say a prayer for Sylvia tonight and take time to remember the good. This was hard to read, to know that so much time has passed….. Nikki loves you Grandma
