So very sorry for your family in this double loss to you. But I can see them hand in hand walking through the gates of heaven together, going to join the choir of angels!

It is so true that Sylvia was the sweetest person! She was always concerned for others and asked about my family. I will miss her so much. Harry was also my friend in choir and he was also concerned for others. I thought he directed a junior high band at one time in his life? They were a lovely couple.

Prayers & condolences to the family, but their passing so close reminds us of what a "couple" is. May they find eternal peace together.

Darla and I will miss watching the Cardinal ball games with both of them. Sylvia always enjoyed the shrimp plates and pizza. They both loved the choir.
-Charlie Maule

I worked with Sylvia at the church on many volunteer committees and projects, especially when I first moved to St. Louis. She was so warm and welcoming, so funny and full of life. Just a great person to be around. So difficult to lose two great people so close together. My prayers are with the family. They will be missed.

Your mom and dad are the greatest! I love them as I would any Aunt and Uncle. My mom and your mom were the best of friends through high school and then for the rest of their lives. I have so many fond memories of visiting as a child and on into my grown up years of life too. I can't think of a more sweet and kind person to have as an adopted Aunt and Uncle. I will always keep them close to my heart and I hope that when I enter into God's Kingdom once again I will hear them singing in the welcoming choir of angels along with my mom and dad.
