I am so very sad to hear that the world has lost Sylvia. She was my very first friend, as I lived across the street from her growing up. She was both tough and tender, even from a young age. And she was a leader even then. She has left us all too soon, but boy, did she give this life all she had! My thoughts and prayers are with you, Maria and Eddie, and I wish I could be there with you to say goodbye.
