I'm so saddened by this news

May God keep her in his loving embrace and the family too. She will be in my prayers tonight.

Thank you Dan for sharing this news.

I'm so sad to hear this, Dan. I, too, had looked forward to meeting her at Epcot with you, and was saddened when she had to cancel her trip. I'm so sorry for her family. Poor little Nick!

I am deeply saddened to read that Sylvia has left us. My computer has been down for a week and when I got back on this (Thursday) morning I searched for news about her. I did not know her, but she lived nearby and I feel a profound loss. I always enjoyed reading her posts. My heart goes out to her little boy, Nick, and her family.

Thank you Dan for being such a good friend to her and writing the beautiful tribute. I know you helped make her final days peaceful and loving.

Rest in peace, Sylvia.

What horrible and devastating news!
I always enjoyed reading Sylvia's posts. She radiated such kindness and humor in them.
My heart goes out to her family. May she be at peace now.

I didn't want to open this thread because I knew what it would say. I am sitting at my desk with tears flowing freely trying to figure a way to express my sadness. The DIS has truly lost a wonderful voice and the world a wonderful person. My heart breaks that Sylvia won't get to be here to watch her DS Nick grow up and that Nick will no longer get to feel the loving arms of his mother embrace him. My heart breaks for her mom who has had to watch her daughter suffer and fight a valiant fight against an opponent that in the end was just too strong. I pray that God gives her family strength in the days ahead.

Sylvia your kindness, warmth, sincerity and spirit will be missed at the DIS. Goodbye friend.

OMGosh, I am so sorry to hear this. I used to visit back in '99 and '00 when I had trips planned, but haven't in a very long time. I remember when NicksMom joined the boards, and when she was made a moderator. I am so very sad to hear this news. God Bless You, NicksMom. And may peace walk with Nick and keep him safe and loved in the absence of his Mom. Gosh, this is so sad ...

Dear Sylvia is with the angels now, finally at peace.

I also never "met" Sylvia, but considered her among my dear friends. We'd exchange ocassional emails, and while Sylvia was fighting this horrible disease, she never lost her sense of humor. She was silly and funny and thoughtful and intelligent and truly warm. I will miss her so much.

Blessings to Nick, may he one day rejoice in the memory of his fine mother.

And Dan, I love you with all my heart, my friend. Everyone deserves a friend like you, and I'm glad that Sylvia had you, if only for a short time.

I am so sorry to hear of this sad news

Sending my thoughts and prayers to all her family and friends at this difficult time.

We were all so blessed at the Dis to of known her and read about her. She was one very special lady.

God Bless.

I think that others have summed up the sentiment felt by everyone here already.

Being relatively new to the boards I can't recall the posts but my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

As soon as I saw the thread, I lit my candle.....We have been praying for Sylvia & Nick & their family every night. Even tho I knew this might come soon, I was still unprepared for how terribly, terribly sad I would be.
Yesterday, I spent the day mourning friends I have lost to another disease, not even knowing that I was mourning Sylvia as well......

May you finally know Peace Sylvia, no more suffering, just the Comfort of being in the Arms of God.....
May you always "Be" with Nick, in his Heart & very much a Part of his Soul.....
I pray for Peace & Healing for Nick & Margrete.....
I pray for all the other brave & wonderful folks who struggle & fight this disease every day......

I did not have much contact with her, mainly learning of her struggle through The Dis. My prayers are for her son and mother at this time, I know that her pain is no more. I also know God was waiting for her with open arms.
