Jackie, Lynda, Katty and families, Please know that we are praying for all of you! I have so many great memories of Aunt Sibyl and I am thankful that I listened to her play the piano because it was an inspiration to me when I was learning to play and still is to this day. We will miss her here on this earth but sure do look forward to seeing her in heaven. Love you all.
