We will miss Miss Sybil so much. She was very sweet and always had a kind word for us. We will cherish her spending Christmas Eve with us last year. My mother will miss her the most of all. Both of your parents and mine had many good times. Mason was sad when he found out, but he was glad we came to see her last Sat. May God bless you in this time of need.

I was so sorry to hear of Miss Sybil's passing away but I am so thankful for the memories I have of her. She always had kind words to say to me. She came to Jimmy's wedding in December and I believe she had a wonderful time enjoying all the food and fellowship at their rehearsal. I know she will be missed greatly by her personal family as well as her church family. God Bless all of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all now and always. I will always hold in my heart the wonderful memories of the summer of 1969 when I had the opportunity to spend three months with this loving family.
