I am reading this for the first time... oh my God! She will be missed. I pray for her sweet little girl as my heart breaks.

I remember the picture she had in her signature too. This is so sad and tragic, I just don't know what to say.

I haven't been on the boards in a few days so I just read about this late yesterday afternoon. I am still in shock and it hasn't really soaked in yet.

Beverly Lynn and I PM'd quite a bit the past two months. In her last PM, she gave me her email address because she was afraid she was going to get banned. So when I saw the "Rest in Peace Sparkly Zoe" thread, I thought that's what happened. It was an ironic cruel shocking twist to learn she had actually died.

Luckily I saved all our PM's and printed them out. It's all I have left to remember her by.

I want to share something here that she wrote to me about Aryn, in the hopes that Leota or Beauty or someone else who was close to her can get it to her family, to show to Aryn one day.
Here is part of what she wrote to me about Aryn on 9/28/03:

"She is my best friend, my biggest cheerleader with my weight loss and my pride and joy. She is beautiful and smart for her 6 yrs and she knows that no matter what I will always, always be there for her. She knows that she can always count on me. I hope that things pick up and we can make our Dec. trip to Disney because we both deserve it."

My heart breaks that she and Aryn won't be making that trip after all.

I am just so so sad.

Oh Susan, that PM is just heartbreaking. BL and I were not friends, but I always admired her spunk and her devotion to her daughter. She was a great help to everyone on the transportation board and answered many of my questions about different airlines. She will be missed greatly here, as well as in her life off the internet.

Oh, geez, that has me in tears.

I'll be sure Leota and Beth see your post, Susan. Thanks for sharing that with us.

BL was always talking about how smart, level headed and funny her dd was. Aryn is so much like her Mom.

off to go cry some more.

The realtionship between BL and Aryn was special. The interaction between them was remarkable...and FUNNY!!

I'm going to contact BL's mom and make arrangements to meet them when she brings Aryn to WDW in January. Last night, watching 8 Simple Rules all I could think about was BL and her family and how difficult this must be for them all.

One part of the show stuck out in my mind...Kate said to her father.... "Don't tell me this is part of God's plan....What about OUR plan?? What about our childrens plans?? We had plans too and this wasn't part of it"

I found myself with a lump in my throat saying "It will be alright...It will be alright" All I could see was Aryn's little face....

Plan or no plan.....this really, really sucks........

God speed Beverly Lynn.......

Oh Susan! Thats Beverly alright and Aryn was the spitting image of her not only in looks but in attitude. Gosh I love those two. I know Beverly's family would love to have a copy of that to save for Aryn.

My email is disbeauty@cox-internet.com

or if Eileen has contacted you the disregard this....she is meeting Josie (BL's mom) and Aryn at Disney in January and I'm sure she would be more than thrilled to give this to them from you.

...what a touching tribute in your siggie! One of my first DIS memories way-back-when when I was a lurker, I remember the happy, smiling pixie-like face of her DD. Although I've never been to a DIS-meet, I feel as if I've met so many of you and you are all like my "extended" family. God Bless Aryn and her family....I'm sure Beverly Lynn is up in WDW-Heaven with Walt smiling down at us all!
