Syril was a beautiful spirited woman. I enjoyed my visits with her and respected her views on life. Her artistic syle and savvy shines through all of her children today. I will miss Syril. May she rest in peace knowing what a light she was to so many people.

Dear Paula, Pete, Diane and Gail: I am so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a huge influence on me and I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. I learned so much from her and will never forget her wisdom and sense of humor. I smile ever time I think of her and am so sorry for your loss. May her memory be a blessing and may she Rest In Peace. Much love.
