I have many fond and abiding memories of Sydney and Cliffe. She and her whole family hold a special place in my heart. She was loving, kind, warm, funny, generous and she treasured her family, especially her beloved grandchildren. We will be remembering Sydney at our services of worship this Sunday and I am holding her whole family in prayer constantly as they begin to live their lives without Sydney's physical presence. Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord. And may light perpetual shine upon her. With my love and deepest sympathies, Elliott Siteman
