I can't believe it's been a year since you passed away, Aunt Syd. I think of you often. Your passing has left a big hole in our family. I find comfort in knowing how strong your faith was. I find comfort knowing that your suffering finally ended. Because of your faith, I find comfort in knowing you are with Katy. I know how much you must have missed each other. When I think of you, I cry and I laugh.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with you and yours during this difficult time.

While we have not kept in touch over the decade,s some thoughts remain fresh and treasured. When the extended family would gather at our log cabin in Naperville, Syd was the "oldest" cousin who always had time for us. Obviously, she lived a lifetime for others. Our world has been blessed by having Sydney with us She will be missed.

Syd will be missed by her family and many friends. I got to know Syd in the Mystical Rose Guild. She was a special person and a very accomplished lady.
May she rest in peace with our Lord.

Dear John and Syd's family,

We send our love, our prayers and a $100 contribution to the Mother Antonia Eudist Servants of the 11th Hour. It will come to you from a grant we requested from the jewish Community Foundation. We will say the Rosary for you and your family tomorrow. We are unable to attend.

The last time we saw you and Syd was at Immaculata Church USD a few months ago. We greeted each other with a warm hug.

May God Bless you and embrace you while you grieve.

Roy and Claire Hughes

To John and Family; Our deepest sympathies on the passing of Syd. She was a wonderful and caring person and indeed a classy lady. We were privileged to have had her as a close friend over all these years. God bless you. The Hustons

Syd was one of the finest women I've ever known. An example of courage in adversity. A kind, loving person with a great sense of humor. I have many treasured memories of our two families. Charlie must surely have welcomed her in Heaven with a warm hug and a joke. My love and sympathy to John, the boys, and Heather.
