Sending all the Larson family our deepest sympathies. Auntie Sylvia was such a wonderful, hopeful, loving person. I will always remember her welcoming ways and happy smile. She was such a loving spirit in this world. I can only imagine the sadness you all are feeling at her loss. No doubt there was a very happy reunion with Uncle Ray and they both will be smiling down on you all forever. Biggest ((hugs)) going out to you all.
