Sylvia sent this to me shortly after we met here on the DIS. Guess we hit it off pretty well early on. :D Nick is about 6 1/2 now, she sent this to me about 15 months ago, not sure how old he was in this picture. Nicks dog, Cougar, a Malamute, is on the right, and Cougar's daughter, Tyree, who lives with some other folks, is on the left. I often commented to Sylvia what a heartbreaker Nick was going to be when he grew up. She agreed, LOL. :D I did have the opportunity to say hi to Nick a few times over the past months. A real nice boy. God bless you, Nick, your mom will be missed. :(

We lost a wonderful woman in our church and school in August. She had 3 wonderful daughter's...6th grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarten. When I see them I think about what she is going to miss but what she is going to help guide them through. This mothers day I saw them in church and it broke my heart to know that they weren't going to be waking up and doing something special with their mom....

Nick...I hope that you can remember your mom always...be brave little sweety!! I know those girls have been the bravest little girls I've seen in a long time..and they have a lot of faith in God.

Oh my....what a darling little boy and you see why Sylvia was proud of her "old" screen name..NicksMom. It was a job title she was proud of.

Nick will be on mind for a long time...such a shame this child lost his mom at his age. We know you will be watching closly over him Sylvia...

wow...
it looks as if he's glancing up to heaven.
He was probably just looking up at mom while she was giving him a big smile herself.
Thank you Dan.

What a beautiful boy. I can't help but weep about the pain and sense of confusion he must be facing right now. It is hard to bear - thinking of a child in distress and his mother is not there to comfort him. Hopefully her spirit will reach out and provide the strength for him to carry on and live to his potential.

I'm 37 and lost my mom a couple months ago to breast cancer. As hard as it was for me, a grown-up to go through and try to understand, I can't imagine what this sweet little guy must be feeling. My thoughts are with you Nick.

Sylvia,

I did not know you, but know of you. You have touched the lives of more people than you may be aware. I wish that I had words to comfort you right now as I am sure that as you look down from Heaven upon your Son you no doubt are afraid. Fear not. Now you can observe him and watch after him as you would have liked to on earth. Take comfort in yourself and your strength as Nick will need you strong and unafraid. Absence is a space in time that a spirit fills. While earthly bonds dictate that mortals must suffice with simply walking through that space-You have the choice in how you wish to occupy it. I envy you that and can only hope that the space in which I will someday have to fill will be as vast and touch as many as yours does.

Nick,

Your Mom was a wonderful person. Why great people and loving Mommies are taken from us when they are needed the most we may never know. But She is up in Heaven with the Angels, and no doubt they are all looking at you and your grandma in awe and wonderment. Mommies might leave your earth, but they never leave your heart.

My heart goes out to Nick and his family.

May we all take heart in Her freedom. Rejoice in Her memory. And reside in Her absence.

I have missed Sylvia and will continue to miss her. . .

I've seen that picture of little Nick before, but that precious little face just made me cry. . .

God receive Sylvia's beautiful soul and bring comfort to her son, her boyfriend, and her family. :(

I just can't imagine a greater pain - perhaps even worse than losing your child - than knowing you are leaving someone so young behind....

How sad for Sylvia to not be able to watch him grow, except from afar.

I am so Sorry and I know she's in a much better place..See you soon our Diz Angel....

A student ask's his master .. How can we meet the lose of a loved one ??

The master answered,.... That by knowing that when we truly love, it is never lost. It is only after death that the debt of a bond is truely felt, and that our loved one becomes more a part of us that was possilbe in life. We not only feel this for someone whom we have known for a long time, but sometimes for a stranger, known only to us for moments . they can spark our souls to kinship for eternity. It is written, that our souls do not keep time, but merely record growth.
Love cannot measure itself until the hour of parting, with each ending there comes a new beginning..

these words have helped me heal , i hope they help you too ...
