  1. Don and Nell Jacques :

    The Family of Sylvia : Sylvia was one of the first people we met when we moved into Manor Village about 3 years ago. Nell and I would often enjoy coffee together in the Manor Cafe or on the outdoor patio. I loved the way she often mentioned her family……you could see that she really loved them. You could really see her brighten up whenever her daughter came over for lunch. Another thing that had to be admired about Sylvia is her honesty. If you wanted a straight answer, you could always count on Sylvia to give you that.
    Honest and straight forward, caring and compassionate about her family she will be missed. Our Condolencses To The Family. Don and Nell Jacques
    Manor Village
