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,

My deepest condolences go out to Sylvia and her family. Having lost people I knew to this disease, I know how hard it is to experience something like this.

Nick, stay strong. Your mother is now looking above you in heaven. She will always be there for you.

This is so sad.

My prayers and condolences to Sylvia's family.

I remember Sylvia's posts, and like Teri said, she was always so positive and friendly.

Peace be with you Sylvia.

I know Sylvia is finally at peace, and I am praying for her and her son who now has to grow up without his dear mom. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel....

My heart goes out to her family and the many who loved and cherished her. I never met Sylvia and did not have the chance to ever correspond with her. Yet, I felt a kinship in her fight because she was part of our community. Her passing should again remind all of us of the very FRAGILITY of LIFE; we ALL are only a HEARTBEAT away from mortality.

I'm not sure if I can type very well with tears running down my cheeks, but I'll give it a try. Sylvia will be greatly missed by those of us here that always enjoyed her posts, but she will especially be missed by her family and Nick. I always felt a bit of kinship with Sylvia- both Eeyore lovers and Canadians. Her clipart always brought a smile to my face whenever I saw it. It's good that Sylvia can now rest easy in God's arms, but for those of us left behind it is very difficult. She will be truly missed.

Unhappy I don't believe this!

I was telling glo this morning that my heart was heavy and thinking about Sylvia!

God, I know that she is with you!
Please comfort her family and friends!

Thank you Dan.

What heartbreaking news. My thoughts and prayers are with Sylvia's family, especially Nick, and her dear friends here on the DIS.

What a beautiful tribute you wrote to her, Dan. She was very lucky to have you for a friend.

I am absolutely speechless as I sit here being selfish as we wait for my mom to have some blood work done in a couple of weeks as one of her counts were high. I'm sitting here thinking how horrible it would be go through this disease again with my mom....trying to think positively. And here, someone I was able to know (and yes, I will always know her as NicksMom too) has lost the fight. And I'm around the age that Sylvia was...

Dear friend...

Please rest in peace and be Nick's guardian angel forever and ever...
Be able to enjoy his growing up as you guide him through those tough years...
Be there to help him laugh when he's nervous or scared or the happiest that he can be...
Be there to "snap" that right answer for the test magically into his head...
Be there to nudge him silently when he falls in love for the first time....
Be there to dance in the street with him when he goes on his own planned trip to WDW...

Be his guardian angel forever...and rest in peace my friend!!!
