  1. Sending wishes to you all during this time. Aunt “Sylv”will be missed by us all. I will always remember a few summers on her visit to our house in Corner Brook and the foolish card games that went on for hours. She was a great person and was dearly loved by her family and friends. Wish we lived closer, hugs to you all. Jennifer, Andrew and Joshua xo
