  6. It’s with great sorrow my mind wanders through my beautiful memories of Sylvia. She was a Hoyt Place roommate, then my sister – in -law, bridesmaid, Kelley’s Godmother, to our camping with our kids, through added years of holiday dinners, fun road trips, visits in Austin, Inlet, Rochester, Wellsville, my partner in card games and the list and memories go on. Yes Sylvia, you will be missed, but I am most thankful for all the wonderful times we had the opportunity to share over the years. With much love and a broken heart I send my sympathy to all in our families.

    Love, Maureen

    I was stunned and crushed when I heard about Sylvia’s passing. Some of the best times of our lives (Carol, me and the kids) happened on camping trips and neighborhood outings with the “Ballad Avenue Gang.” A thousand laughs and stories between campfires kept us as friends for many years and I loved every bit of it. You, Silvia and the family will always be in my prayers. God Bless.

  23. Dear Bob, Shaun, Tana, Darin I am so sorry for your loss.

    Sylvia or Mrs P as I always called her became my extra mum during my high school exchange year in 1988/89). Mrs P and Bob welcomed me into the family with a special warm feeling, smiling faces, caring for eachother and many loughs that continued during my year with the Paddens.

    Looking back, it was a great year with many fantastic memories. Sometimes I wounder how Mrs P let me get away with some things I did or said. She had a fantastic personality and as some days for me where tougher being far away from family and friends somehow she always picked me up. She always treated me as one in the family – my extra mum!! My year with the Paddens shaped me more than I could believe at that time. I see it now, and for that I am very grateful. I have Mrs P and the family to thank for letting me become a part of a fantastic family that brings me great memories and friendship.

    I miss you and I will never forget you and when I think of you I am smiling!

    Take care whereever you are!

    Love
    Patrick

  24. Sending heartfelt sympathy, hugs and love. She left a part of herself in my heart. May all your memories bring you comfort. I will forever cherish the time spent with Sylvial

  25. How Sylvia will be missed by so many us. I cherish all the memories – road trips to TX, ADK, card games and I will so miss her laugh and smile. I have my lucky charm she gave me and it will keep her close in thought. To all of you hugs and love.

  26. To the Padden Family we are so sorry for your lost. Tracie, Aiden, and myself will have in my our prayers. Mrs. P was truly blessed to have a wonderful family.
