    Sylvia was a wonderful First Lady. An example to all at her Whippoorwill Pentecostal Church of faith and love for her Saviour. She was super warm and friendly and loved children very much. My life has been enriched knowing her.

    What a lovely woman. I didn’t get a chance to meet her, but heard only words of love and kindness about her character. The description I heard most often about Sylvia were, “prayer warrior,” and “woman of God.” I pray to leave a legacy like that of Aunt Sylvia.
