    My heartfelt condolences to Sylvia’s family. She was a friend of my late mother, Eleanor Bowles, at Aston Gardens in Naples. We used to marvel at Sylvia’s energy and wit, when she was a decade or more older than all those other senior citizens! There was a lovely photo essay of Sylvia dancing on her 104th birthday that appeared in the Naples Daily News. Seeing her obit in the paper today brought a tear to my eyes and a smile to my lips.

  3. Dear Harriet & Family,

    Our thoughts are of you and the remarkable and long and well spent life of your Mother.

    Stay well friends,

    Love Franklin & Kathy Adams
