    [​IMG]Most of us know of Sylvia, aka NicksMom, our DIS friend who passed away last year, June 7th, from breast cancer. A number of us here may not recall Sylvia, having joined the DIS during the past year, or just not 'hanging out' on the CB or Canadian Board (where she was a co-moderator) at the time last year.

    I personally never met Sylvia, or any of her family, but I did get to know her a bit over the limited number of months she did share her glow, smiles, resolve and hope with us all. She lived life to the fullest, she prayed for a miracle, as we did with her, till her last breath. Sylvia was a daughter, a mom, a lover, a fighter. She loved her son, Nick, her mom, Margarete, her partner, Dan, she loved life.

    Sylvia is with us today, I firmly believe so. I miss you dearly, Sylvia, a true friend you became over those months. I look forward to the day we meet in person. Until then, care for Nick, your mom, us. We love you. :sunny:

    For those who did not know Sylvia, or would like to revisit a few threads (some links within these may not work), here are some links to share some time with a real lady, Sylvia.

    Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to know Sylvia before she passed. But because of your loving posts, Dan, and those of others...I feel that I have a good sense of the quality of person she was here on the DIS. Sylvia's story touches me, and I think of her often.

    I don't know what to say except that was very touching Dan. Although I've been visiting the DIS since it's inception, I didn't know anything of Sylvia until right before she passed away, as I never frequented the CB until then. I will definitely keep her in my thoughts tomorrow, and her son and the rest of her family. She must have been a very special person seeing as how much all of you who knew her miss her.

    I came here after Sylvia passed, but what a lovely tribute. I know from the references in other's sigs that she was loved and is sorely missed.

    She is gone but not forgotten.

    And I honestly believe she is still here among us as well.

    I know her death serves as a reminder to me to have my annual mammogram done. Ironically, I had my first one last year on the day she died. :(

    She was a funny sort of person, a little off-beat, she loved dogs and her kid and Disney World. I miss her alot.

    What a special post Dan, I know I will not forget her.
    " Nothing you love is lost; not really. Things, people - they always go away, sooner or later. You can't hold them, any more than you can hold moonlight. But if they've touched you, if they're inside you, then they're still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart."

    Beautiful tribute Dan. I have found myself the last few days reading through many of the same threads you had linked for us just now. She will be missed.

    Even though I did not know her, many of you hold her in high regard. I will keep her in my thoughts today and say a little prayer for her family.

    Right now "You'll Be in My Heart" from Tarzan is playing on my CD player and for some reason it really fits as I'm reading this post.....

    You are missed Sylvia and we still love you very much!!!!

    I had to post the lyrics to this song, it makes me think of Sylvia and Stephanie whenever I hear it.

    With You In Your Dreams by Hanson



    (Dedicated to the memory of their grandmother,Jane Nelson Lawyer)
    If I'm gone when you wake up please don't cry
    And if I'm gone when you wake up it's not goodbye
    Don't look back at this time as a time of heartbreak and distress
    Remember me, remember me, 'cause I'll be with you in your dreams
    Hooo. Ohh I'll be with you.
    If I'm gone when you wake up please don't cry.
    And if I'm gone when you wake up don't ask why
    Don't look back at this time as a time of heartbreak and distress
    Remember me, remember me, cause I'll be with you in your dream, ohh, ohh
    Don't cry I'm with you don't cry I'm by your side
    Don't cry I'm with you don't cry I'm by your side
    And though my flesh is gone, Hoo Ohh
    I'll still be with you at all times
    And though my body is gone, Hoo Ohh
    I'll be there to comfort you at all times
    Hoo, ohh, hoo, ohh
    If I'm gone when you wake up please don't cry
    And if I'm gone when you wake up it's not goodbye
    Don't look back at this time as a time of heartbreak and distress
    Remember me, remember me, 'cause I'll be with you in your dreams
    I don't want you to cry and weep, Hoo Ohh
    I want you to go on livin' your life
    I'm not sleepin' an endless sleep, Hoo Ohh
    Cause in your heart you all have good times
    If I'm gone when you wake up please don't cry
    And if I'm gone when you wake up it's not goodbye
    Don't look back at this time as a time of heartbreak and distress
    Remember me, remember me, 'cause I'll be with you in your dreams
    Hoo I'll be with you in your dreams

    I'm glad so many of her DIS friends have not forgotten. Sylvia's death was one of the things that drew me more deeply into the DIS community--it showed me how many very special people inhabit these boards. Thanks for the reminder.
