We read about Sylvia in the Riverton ranger and we wanted to send our thoughts and prayers to her family. Sylvia was a member of our quilt group, Peace by Piece Quilt Circle at St Margaret Church in Riverton. She was a wonderful, gentle woman who never had an unkind word for or about anyone. She was so good to all of us beginning quilters, ever so patient and kind with us. She taught us to be precise and meticulous with our sewing, and was always, always praising and encouraging us. She had a wonderful sense of humor and we truly loved the days when she came to sew with us. She had an amazing faith and I know she is up there now with our Lord and Savior, probably teaching all the angels how to quilt. �� We will be keeping all of you in our prayers
