Mrs. Silvia was a treasure to know. Her endless love for Mr. Don, Mr. Lee, and her daughters even through many hard years was a shinning example to me of how we should love. She always kept everything just right at her homes and never failed to great you with a bright smile and a hug if I was working at her place, passing in the store, or walking into the junction. I pray that her family will know the peace in Christ here that she is now finally reaping in truest sense there.
