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...

Oh, what a precious little boy. Much too young to lose his mom. It just breaks my heart.
