She was always offering hugs and affection whenever we saw each other and treated our daughter Jessica as if she was one of her own. She was an amazing wife and mother and it’s obvious when you see her children, not only how warm and loving they are, but their ambition to study and persue great careers. I’m sure she’ll always be looking over her family from Heaven and continue being proud of them and guiding them. She was an Angel on earth and will be missed by us all. Rest in peace Sylta.

My heart goes out to the family and so know she was proud of all her children! Samuel, so proud of you going back to school! Will keep you all in my prayers! I still am in shock! My heart hurts that she left too soon, but I know she is singing unto the Lord! She would be no other place! I am happy for her because I can see her face! Smiling and glowing!
