On behalf of our family, David West expressed our appreciation to Pastors Judy and Richard Jennings for the use of their facilities, to Bob Shapland for taking time off work to provide the sound and run the Powerpoint presentation, to members of Joy Outreach Fellowship and the Hendersonville Church of Christ for working together to provide lunch for the family, and to all who came to the service to help us honor Sylvia and praise our Savior and Lord, Jesus.

Sylvia in 1953...
Would her new heavenly body look something like this?
