We send our condolences to Sylvia’s family. We will miss her very much. We always enjoyed stopping on our way home for coffee and cookies.

I have a lot of wonderful memories growing up with Mrs. Garner as a neighbor. She always made me a square birthday cake with a specially marked piece full of extra change. I remember playing lots of yahtzee games and eating her wonderful cookies. She was a favourite of all the neighbor children.
