Syble has been a great friend for 45 years. We talked several weeks ago about her having a health issue. She was going to see another doctor. I will miss her but will never forget her.

Ms. Joyce, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a sweet lady. I remember going to her upholstery shop and I would tell her about me being in your very first, first grade class. That was 38 years ago (1971-1972) even though it seemed like yesterday. I pray that God will comfort you and your family and give you peace in the days ahead of you. God Bless You and Your Family, Pam Allen Vaughn

Sincere sympathy upon Syble's death. She often attended our church, St. James UMC, here in Athens. I enjoyed getting to know her. She had such a gentle voice and a sweet spirit. We will miss her.
