<p><b>I asked Sylvia's SO, Dan, (good name, Dan) if he would send me some
pictures of Sylvia so we could know her better.&nbsp; Syl had sent me one many
months ago, but I was unable to find it on my pc.&nbsp; Sylvia is a very pretty
woman whom I will dearly miss.&nbsp; Here, my friends, is our departed friend,
Sylvia.&nbsp; Love ya, Syl.</b>&nbsp;</p>
<p><b><img src="http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/sylvia/2a.jpg" width="650" height="400"></b></p>
<p><b>This is a picture of Sylvia and Dan.&nbsp; They were together for 4 1/2
years, Sylvia was ill for 3 1/2.&nbsp; According to Canadian law, they actually
were common law married.&nbsp; I have talked quite a few times over the months
to Dan also, again first on ICQ, then on the phone in recent months.&nbsp; He
has been a stalwart rock of support to Sylvia all along.&nbsp; He apologized for
the shadow here on Syl.</b></p>

<p><b>What a great picture of a great lady!!!!&nbsp; This picture was taken
about 6 months before Sylvia was diagnosed with breast cancer.&nbsp; </b></p>

<p><b>What a great picture of Sylvia and little Nick.</b></p>

Thank you so much for posting these Dan and thanks to Sylvia's Dan for sharing them.

Sylvia looks so happy in all of these photos and that's how we should remember her, I think.

Thanks again!

Thank you both very much.............

My sincere sympathies to Sylvia's Dan and for being so kind to share these with us during what must be an extremely hard time for him.
We are glad Sylvia's suffering is over,but so sad and angry that she had to go thru this at all.
A special light in our lives has gone out.
We will miss her dearly.

And Thank you Dan Murphy,as always, friend.
I like the blonde fishing picture best as that is what I expected her to look like.
Having seen pictures of Nick in the past ,I figured he got his good looks from his Mom.
Now I can picture her smiling.
It helps ease the pain in my heart.

Hugs, Marilyn

Thank you, Dan. I've been "gone" in WDW for a week now but, Routeman Dan was the 1st to inform me of our loss and I'm really saddened by this, my 1st night home! I truly feel for her son and Her Dan and Dan's child as well! They will ALL miss her greatly, as will we!
