<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.  Syl had sent me one many
months ago, but I was unable to find it on my pc.  Sylvia is a very pretty
woman whom I will dearly miss.  Here, my friends, is our departed friend,
Sylvia.  Love ya, Syl.</b> </p>

<p><b>This is a picture of Sylvia and Dan.  They were together for 4 1/2
years, Sylvia was ill for 3 1/2.  According to Canadian law, they actually
were common law married.  I have talked quite a few times over the months
to Dan also, again first on ICQ, then on the phone in recent months.  He
has been a stalwart rock of support to Sylvia all along.  He apologized for
the shadow here on Syl.</b></p>

<p><b>This picture is of Sylvia, Nick, and Dan's DD, Emma.</b></p>

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

<p><b>So tough to look at.<img border="0" src="" width="15" height="15"> 
This one also was taken shortly before she was diagnosed.  </b></p>
<p><b>What a great picture of Sylvia and little Nick.</b></p>

<p><b>This picture is of Nick on the left, Dan's DD's, Emma, behind Nick and Ava,

<p><b>That ice cream sure looks good.<img border="0" src="" align="texttop" width="18" height="48">

I hope to have a few more later in the week. Thanks, Dan, for sharing Sylvia with her DIS family. We will miss her dearly.</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!

    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

    It is so hard to see those beautiful pictures and not feel the love betwen Sylvia and Nick.

    Such a beautiful lady. Dan her SO is to be honored for all his strength, love and support. Nick is so lucky to know him.

    We really have to work harder for cure and prevention - it just tears my heart out that this disease is taking so many mothers from their young families.

    Thank you Dan, for sharing these pictures.

    The only question I have is <i>WHY does this have to happen?</i> Such a beautiful woman struck down in the prime of her life. Life is so unfair.

    Thank you both Dans.

    Sylvia looked as beautiful in person as she was in spirit. May we never forget the lessons she has taught us.
