My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Willie Sylvester. I met him at Brentwood Church. He always presented with a beautiful smile. May the memories of his kindness, compassion, and generosity sustain you at this most difficult time. Please know that I am thinking of you all at this time.

My prayers & sympathy to the family. I remember Willie when he was a little boy at Cannan Baptist Church where he, my uncle's kids & my kids all played together. As the years went by we moved & joined Brentwood Baptist Church. A few years later Willie joined. Brentwood. He was always so nice & cheerful. Such a nice young man. Willie is in the hands of the master now. To God be the glory. I pray God will receive his soul into his kingdom.
