My deepest sympathy, Joan & Family, on the loss of a super great and talented man. I knew Syl to be intelligent, multi skilled and unlimited in ability to accomplish anything. But, probably more than this, he was a devoted husband, family man, and very devout Catholic. Be assured of my prayers for him and your family for the Lord's strength to endure his loss. Heaven is welcoming him, for sure. Don
