I'm truly sorry to hear this. We had crossed cyber paths a couple times outside of the DIS also. I always felt she was really cool!! Rest in peace Sylvia, your pain is over.

Sylvia came over to the disABILITIES Board a few months ago looking for planning assistance so she could get the accomodations she needed to make that last trip... she was so positive and excited... but she wasn't able to make it. She was always such a positive force on the boards.

Very sad. Our prayers are with her family.

Thankyou Dan for sharing this difficult news with us all.

I counted her as a friend and saw what a hard struggle it was for her.

We had several wonderful email conversations about hats......hats to cover her nearly bald head. I was always thinking about her whenever I saw a neato hat and wondered if it would be one she'd like.

What an interesting woman she was and I didn't even know her well!

Thanks again and my thoughts and prayers go with you and her family.

*but you already knew that didn't you?*
I Love Ruth

I cannot type through my tears.

That sweet soul.

Rest in peace, my friend.

I am grieved to learn Sylvia has left us. It gives me some comfort to know that our cards and sentiments proved helpful to her family and Sylvia as she fought her last struggle with cancer.

Tomorrow afternoon I begin the cancer society's relay for life. 24 hours of walking with my coworkers on a relay team to help fight this terrible disease. It seems fitting somehow that I am participating in that event - after so recently losing some cyber friends and because I have a SIL who is also fighting this battle. Our team (the Voltswalkers) raised $7,500 together to help fight cancer. A mere drop in the bucket - but maybe that 7,499th dollar will be the magic one. I hope so. As I walk the late night shift I will occupy my time thinking about Sylvia, Ross Ann (Lynn CC's little sis), Marie (a survivor), and my SIL.

My heart aches.

I didn't really know who Sylvia was, but I am so, so sorry to hear this . My prayers go out to her family and to all of you here on the Dis that were close to Sylvia. It sounds like she had some wonderful friends in all of you.

Unhappy I am so very sorry.

I was almost afraid to open this, I knew what it was. I'm at a loss for words right now, I really am. This is so heart wrenching. I never had the pleasure of meeting her, either, but still I can't stop my tears for this very courageous woman. My prayer's and my deepest sympathy goes out to Sylvia's son, Nick and her family.
Thank you, Dan, for letting us know. {{{hugs}}}

<font color=navy>Dan,

I am in tears reading about our friend, Sylvia. I am glad that the love of fellow DISers reached out to her, and I hope that we offered some measure of comfort to Sylvia and her family. At the same time I am so sad that I will never be able to meet her in person on this planet.

Thank you for letting us know, Dan.

God bless you, Sylva, and may He watch over your little one, Nick.

My heart is breaking for a mom who won't physically see her little boy grow up. My heart is breaking for Nick who is going to miss his Mom. Sylvia was very young, my friends, Nick is only 6 or 7.
Dan you have been so kind to her and her family. God Bless you.
I got to know Sylvia through her posts and she posted that she wanted to start scrapbooking some of her memories for Nick. There are no words to describe how I felt when I read that and the fact that she knew w/o a miracle she would not be here for her son. I collected some supplies and sent them to her and I hope she was able to do a few pages for him. He will treasure them and her memory forever.
Tonight and everyday, hug your babies, Moms (and Dads). Sylvia has taught me such a life lesson.

"Godspeed" to Sylvia, and thank you for bringing just a tiny amount of her kindness and history into my life.

SSB shall not forget her.
