I am truly sorry for the loss of your loved one, Sylvia. We were once neighbors in North Gadsden. Sylvia was a very sweet and dear person. At the end of each life is a legacy of love and memories. Hold tight to those memories…. Lean on each other for support. And look to God’s Word, the Bible, for comfort and strength. 1 Peter 5:7 encourages; “Throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.”

I am so sorry to recently learn about the death of my high school friend. We lost touch over the years, but I will cherish the fun we had during our high school years at Gadsden High. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Sylvia was a sweet person. I’m praying for the family’s peace and comfort.
