I guess I knew deep down in my heart that she had left us. I kept waking all night to pray for her....
Sylvia will always be NicksMom to me - my first friend on the DIS. We got admonished a few times for our posts about Brad Pitt and chocolate sauce, giggled over our scolding, and emailed each other about our lives and similarities.
Dan, you have been terrific in keeping in contact with her and her family and then for keeping us posted. Please let us know if there is a fund set up for Nick - how hard this must be for him, at age 7 to go through.
The following is a Native American Prayer that I love and feel is what Sylvia would say to us:
I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still - in each new dawn.
Go with God, Sylvia,
