Not sure what to say?

To the family of Sylvia Wade,
Sylvia and I worked together years ago, I remember Sylvia leaving TAP to pursue another career which was to do hair I promised that would visit her, but I never could find the shop and often wondered where is Sylvia. She was a very sweet lady, may her soul rest in peace.

To Tammy my prayers are wtih you and your family during this time. Your mother was a beautiful person. May God give you comfort and peace.

Just found out today about her passing. I am so sorry for the family's loss. Sylvia had a very special kindness about her, and she was a light to all who met her. I know she rests with the angels. Even though I did not see her often in the latter years, I will cherish the memory of her, and pray that the peace she now has, will also be with those who loved her. God Bless You.
Your cousin.

Just found out about her passing. Sylvia's family lived directly across the street from my grandmother's house on Staunton. She used to do things for me and my brother because she knew my Mom worked and was raising us by herself. She also took us with her to church a few times. She was one of a kind and I have fond memories of her. I am so sorry for your loss, Tammy, Donnie, and Eric.

Sylvia has gone to sleep with the other angels and will be truly missed.

Annette will be truly missed by all, especially at our Hayden Family Reunion. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. She was such a strong lady who was always so glad to see you. She is with God now but continue to cherish her memories and find your faith and strength in the Lord.

Offering my deepest condolences to Tammy, Eric and Donald, during this difficult time. I was so very sorry to hear of Sylvia's passing. Sylvia was such a kind and caring person, she was beautiful inside and out. Death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing God has promised he will do away with sickness, pain, and death for his word is the truth.

The loss of Sylvia greaves our hearts, but we can rejoice knowing she is with the Lord. I will always remember Sylvia's smile and beautiful spirit. She was so full of life. I have so many wonderful memories coming to Virginia in the summer to visit my cousins. My cousin, Sylvia, gave me my first job at 14 years old working in the summer program at TAP. She taught me how to fold clothes the right way (perfect). I remember singing with my cousins at Staunton Avenue Church of God. She did...

Though it saddened me that there was always such a great distance between us, I am always grateful that I had someone like you in my corner, however far apart we were. I can take comfort in knowing that you moved on to a happier place. Love You ME MA.
