  1. It is always so hard to say goodbye to a close friend. But this time I could feel Sydney-Chanele’s presence all the time through the entire ceremony. I could feel her and see her through the eyes of so many she touched through her short but very active life. Thank you Joel for your beautiful farewell to our “sister”.
    God Bless her family and all friends. God bless her soul!
    Goodnight my dear friend and see you soon!
