    I’m sorry to hear of Sylvia’s passing. She was such a delightful lady. I worked with Dewey at Erb’s for a couple years doing alterations, and knew her then. She often came back and visited if Dewey was busy on the floor when she popped into the store. I really enjoyed my time with her. I know you will miss her terribly, but now she and Dewey are together again. One thing I knew for sure about Dewey…he loved Sylvia with all his heart……and he was never shy about declaring it.
