It is with profound sadness that I inform everyone that Sydney passed away after a brave battle with cancer. Sydney and I have always been friends. I cherished our friendship, knowing that she was always there for me like a sister, even though we lived in different places, and did not get to see each other very often. When we would meet up, it was as if time had stood still, and we were part of each other's lives.

Sydney was also a talented pastry chef renowned far and wide for her fine desserts. She loved being with her family, having fun with friends, and baking treats for everyone. Sydney touched the lives of many people with her smile and good nature, and maintained her optimism all the way to the end. Her generous spirit and zest for life will continue to live among us through the love she shared with family and friends.
