I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers through these difficult days. May God provide you and all of your family with comfort & love as you go forward.

One of the sweetest people I have ever had the privilege to know. Ma Sybil touched so many lives and loved her family dearly. May the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ bless you all with peace and comfort in the days to come.

Morris Wilson and my father, James Moorhead, shared an office when they worked for the Life Insurance Company of Georgia in Laurens. It was during this time that I got to know Sybil. She was truly a gentle, thoughtful and caring lady. I can still see her smile.
