    :( I'm not sure if I can type very well with tears running down my cheeks, but I'll give it a try. Sylvia will be greatly missed by those of us here that always enjoyed her posts, but she will especially be missed by her family and Nick. I always felt a bit of kinship with Sylvia- both Eeyore lovers and Canadians. Her clipart always brought a smile to my face whenever I saw it. It's good that Sylvia can now rest easy in God's arms, but for those of us left behind it is very difficult. She will be truly missed.:(

    I was telling glo this morning that my heart was heavy and thinking about Sylvia!

    God, I know that she is with you!
    Please comfort her family and friends!

    Thank you Dan.

    What heartbreaking news. :( My thoughts and prayers are with Sylvia's family, especially Nick, and her dear friends here on the DIS.

    What a beautiful tribute you wrote to her, Dan. She was very lucky to have you for a friend.

    I am absolutely speechless as I sit here being selfish as we wait for my mom to have some blood work done in a couple of weeks as one of her counts were high. I'm sitting here thinking how horrible it would be go through this disease again with my mom....trying to think positively. And here, someone I was able to know (and yes, I will always know her as NicksMom too) has lost the fight. And I'm around the age that Sylvia was...

    Dear friend...

    Please rest in peace and be Nick's guardian angel forever and ever...
    Be able to enjoy his growing up as you guide him through those tough years...
    Be there to help him laugh when he's nervous or scared or the happiest that he can be...
    Be there to "snap" that right answer for the test magically into his head...
    Be there to nudge him silently when he falls in love for the first time....
    Be there to dance in the street with him when he goes on his own planned trip to WDW...

    Be his guardian angel forever...and rest in peace my friend!!!

    My heart goes out to all the friends and family of Sylvia, but especially to Nick. My heart is breaking, just thinking about him. What a wonderful example Sylvia gave us all of courage, positive attitude, and determination. Through it all, she never gave up hope. You will be missed, Sylvia. :(

    Our deepest sympathies are with Sylvia's family. We never got the chance to get to know her but feel as if we have lost a friend. :(

    I am sobbing as I write this. How blessed we were to have Sylvia as a part of the DIS family. Her positive spirit was, and will continue to be, such an inspiration.

    May our prayers comfort Sylvia's family and friends during this time of sorrow and may they find comfort in the knowledge that they will be reunited again. What a wonderful promise.

    Dan, we know you are hurting now...you are such a gentle, kind man. Thank you for opening your heart to others so willingly. You always kept us posted on Sylvia, allowing us to keep her in our hearts and prayers. I will never see Eeyore again without thinking of Sylvia and her dear Nick...I doubt I am alone in this thought.

    I went back and did a search. Her last post to the Dis board was on May 7, a month ago today. So very sad. My heart breaks for her son. My prayers are with him and her.

    Thanks Dan,

    I am so sorry to hear this. Sylvia was a great asset to the DIS, and to the world in general, and will be missed. My condolences to her family. :(
