    Didn’t know you long, but thank you for the prayers and encouragement that you left me with. Sorry I didn’t get to know you better and was away when you moved to Heaven. I will be glad to spend more time with you later when we live together with our Lord and Saviour whom you loved so. Sorry about your great loss, Pamela and the rest of those whose lives Angela blessed. Sleep sweetly my sister

  • Traceii Roberts

    My sincere condolences to you Pam and to your siblings, family and to all whom loved this most amazing and passionate woman of God.

    Your memory remains a great light to all those whom crossed your path, of the incredibly rich testimony of Jesus Christ, that He was sinless and willingly died on our behalf; and that for those whom receive the truth, are reconciled and justified before the Father, and receive abundant grace and will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    I am so thankful and blessed to have known you dear Angela, even though a short few years. It was ordained from above and I will never forget the mark you impressed upon me.

    Thank you for your love, your prayers and phone calls. Thank you for being a woman of integrity who stood your ground, for knowing who you were, Whose you were and for walking in it regardless of the times and changing world view.

    I so look forward to seeing you again, praying with and worshipping God with you again. There is not enough space here to write of all the goodness you gave in your time here. However, I want your family to know that I honour you, I respect you and that I love you. You will be so dearly missed and never forgotten. So many little things will bring your memory to mind. Thank you for continuing to bless me and give in these ways even though you are journeying in the perfect place of Love now. I’m so glad that you have now entered into the sweetest place that you have always treasured. Praise Jesus!! I so miss and love you!!

    To Pamela, Terry and Edward, we call her “Mother” but Your Mother Angela was so proud of you and all your accomplishments. Her works and her legacy will continue to live on in you and generations to come. To the rest of the family, my sincere condolences. We don’t say goodbye, her very last words to me were “I will call you tomorrow”. Thank God for the calling as the leaves are falling at this time of Thanksgiving.
    Here is a call for the endurance of the Saints who keep the Commandments of God and the Faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from Heaven telling me to write, “Blessed are the dead—those who die in the Lord from this moment on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds will follow them.” And I looked and saw a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was One like the Son of Man, with a Golden Crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.…(Revelation 14:12-14).
    Wear your Golden Crown well, you are a Wonderful Soul with a Beautiful spirit. You have revealed Christ in the earth and we will continue your legacy by fulfilling your last request.
    In Honor of and in Loving Memory of Pastor Angela May Sylvan and all that she has done on earth, we will be providing 10 less fortunate families with a complete Thanksgiving Dinner here in Toronto this weekend. I know all is well with her soul.

  • Bonnie Robinson

    My sweet sister in Christ! Will miss hearing your powerful prayers & your testimony of who God is in your life. I can only imagine the reunion between you & your Heavenly Father. You have been such an inspiration & rock in my life this last year after losing our son. I will miss your phone calls & texts. You could laugh with the best of them & you could tell of our Saviour better than most. Our huge loss is heaven’s enormous gain. Until we meet again…

  • Agnes TROTMAN

    The initial shock is over.My sister, pastor Angela May Sylvan, Teacher, mother, Minister, aunt, Grandmother, sister-in-law and God mother to my youngest child has left us.I heard that it is for a better place. Heartfelt condolences to her three children, grand children, siblings and other immediate family.Rest assured, you love her, but God loves her more. Hold on to the precious memories she left with you. Hope they will be comforting. A true soldier, one who devoted many many years to the service of the lord, through ministry and counselling. To say she will be missed is an understatement. When tomorrow starts without her, please understand, that an angel came and called her name and took her by the hand.(quote) May God continue to bless and comfort you all.
