Sylvia was a ray of sunshine to me! I was the Director of Outreach at Freedom Fellowship while she was working at Canyon Cares and I would regularly take fliers about outreach events in for them to pass out to their clients. Sylvia was always excited about what we were doing and especially about our group for single moms and Freedom House, our outreach center. She always wanted to hear the latest news on both and was eager to come for a private "tour" when we built the new Freedom House building. I always so appreciated her love of ministry and her smiling support of me personally. I offer you my deepest sympathy at your loss. I'm sure she will be greatly missed. Carolyn Sims
