I only met Sylvia once at Mark and Janet's wedding and remember her as a kind and caring person.

We were sorry to hear about your mother's passing. We're so glad Ora and Ziv were there. Hugs to all of you. Rebecca and Robin Drechsel

My mother, Sylvia, raised us to be practical and self-reliant. She had a vibrant personality inspiring curiosity and open mindedness. I was proud of her and loved her very much.
