This was hard to write: I knew this day would come. I felt it. I looked at your photograph just last night. And got the news this morning. This is a hard one. All my close girlfriends, know about you because I would mention you often. My Aunt Sybil. A Phenomenal Woman. A Phenomenal Person. I thank God our last conversation a little over two months ago was a very long one. Just did not know it would be the last one. I learned so much from you. I will miss our long talks. I will miss hearing you say "My child..." I am so sorry that the state of the world has kept us apart when I tried to see you at the nursing home. I always told you "When I grow up I want to be like you Aunt Sybil". You always said "I don't worry because God is going to take care of me". He sure IS. I want the World to know what Fabulous person you are. So happy we got to go for "tea" at that beautiful Tea House in Westchester. A moment I will always treasure. I never got to have that grand Tea Party I was planning for you (she loved to drink tea), but I am sure going to have one in your honor when life gets back to somewhat normal. You are one of the most important people in my life. To my Classy, Sassy, Fashionable, Fun and Gracious Aunt Sybil, today I salute you, I raise a glass for you. I love you forever. I know you are in a better place. I know you are Resting Easy. Yes, my heart feels heavy... rest well. #somuchlovehere

Dear Frances and Richard. So sorry for the loss of your Mom. Our deepest condolences to you and your families. May God confort and keep you in your time of sorrow. Aunt Sybil was not only one of Mom's best friends but she has always been in our lives ever since we were born. When Mom passed, she was always there for us and said we were like her children. She was a very kind and generous soul and will surely be missed. She was very proud of you, your children and grandchildren. Even though she was going through her ailment she kept a very positive attitude without complaints. In our recent conversations, she would always say "She is here until the Good Lord is ready for her" She was always strong and making the best of what she was going through. I always admired her for that even though I know she was in pain. Aunt Sybil, we love you and miss you. One day we will see you again May your soul Rest in Everlasting Peace. Genevieve and family
