We are saddened to learn of the passing of Sylvia. Please accept our sympathies.. We respected her forthright views on a great number of topics, but above all we admired and enjoyed her great and beautiful gift for writing poetry which will be missed.

Hi Colin. Adelaide is a long way from Invercargill, but my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Over the many years I have known her, I have so many good memories. Of my eight aunties, three uncles and their 11 spouses, she is the last to go - making me very conscious of my 82 years. I shall be thinking of you as you adjust to life without her. With love.
Rex King, Adelaide
