Maria and Eddie; what a gap has been ripped in your hearts with the loss of your daughter and sister. But you will heal as all the rest of us will too because as Sylvia would say, "It is what it is. Now go get on with it." How much we will miss you Sylvia but oh how much wisdom you left us with. Your guidance and example will help so many of us when we find ourselves looking for an answer. Going forward now when we face a challenging situation or circumstance we can ask ourselves, "What would Sylvia have done?" and we will find the answer. During social times the next generation of Volleyball Officials will hear about what a great friend we all had in Sylvia. Each of us will have our own special 'Sylvia Story' that we will share with each other and with those who were not as fortunate as us to have known her and called her our friend. And that is how your legacy will live on and on. Your room has been prepared by Him and he has called you to it far too soon for our liking. Good-bye Sylvia until we see each other again on the other side. I am a better person because you generously shared some of your life with me and for that I will always be grateful.
