This is such a tragic loss of someone truly special. I am thankful that her family was by her side when her time had come and that she is no longer in pain--but I am feeling an emptiness knowing that she is gone from us. She was so loving and supportive when I joined Pip. She made me feel so welcomed into this wonderful family of poets. I had so much respect for her both as a poetess and a loving human being. She was an integral part of this family's heart.

Lyra, I know that you'll be reading this and I want to say to you once more--we loved you very much---and we always will! Keep reading our poetry from cloud 9 and whispering your sweet and thoughtful replies in our ears! God bless you, Dear One.

Love,
Linda xo

To Dave & the family, when I gaze at the miraculous sky above,
I know that a brilliant new star now shines in the heavens.
May its light guide your way during these times of sadness,
and may you be soothed by the knowledge
that love's eternal beauty will forever shine.
Let love be your comfort.
You are in my heart and in my prayers.

Dearest Lyra..you will live on for all enterity in our hearts,
through your written word and memories.

Fly high..fly free sweet soul.  
You were, and are, so loved here at Passions
and will be terribly missed.  Nancy.

I found myself watching the squirrels scurrying about
  in the afternoon's warmth today ....
   ... not knowing of Lyra's plight ...
        
         ... her gentleness will always be here.
        
             Condolences, one and all.

May her family find comfort in the memories they shared.

I still remember how she, in the initial days of our correspondences, would confuse me as "Barry," and how she promised to share a slice of acorn pizza with me, seeing as we both had rodent screen names.

God bless, Lyra.

(tears fall down my cheeks) Lyra, we all will never forget you, never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, you will always be our one and original garden pest of love and compassion, and for you we will all go on and hold your love at heart, as you truly are an inspiration of the greatest love one could ever know! (wipes tears) You are one of the most special friends I have ever known and nothing in the world can ever change that, as I am speaking for every one of us here, who loves you so very much!



God Bless You, my dearest friend!

(big angel hugs) I also want to send extra special angel hugs out to you, Dave, for always being there for her and always will! (wipes tears) She will always love you and if you never need a friend to talk to, I am here and you count on all of us here! (big angel hugs of comfort)





God Bless You All!

Love,
Noah Eaton

I hope these gently and loving thoughts expressed here offer support to the family and to those of us here who lost a close friend.  Ken Julkowski

Oh, Sweet Chippymunk, how you are already deeply missed. Touching each and every heart here in Passion's family. No more pain Lyra, for the Lord has lifted you up and taken you home.  Bless you precious one.
   Dear Super Dave, may you be strengthened by the love Lyra had for you, and rest assured that we will all meet again one day.
Blessed were you both to have been man and wife. Take care. Chris

I just read one of Titia replies to another poem about missing Lyra, and tears began to flow. I knew when I came back here this is what I would find. I am so sorry for all of us who have had the pleasure of knowing our sweet little Chippymunk...her dear Dave, her children, her sister, and all of her big family of friends here at Passions. She was a wonderful and loving lady, and a very big lose for all who knew her.

There are some people that just brush upon the tenderest places of you, and they become an indelible part.
I wanted to see you again Lyra, and walk in the park for a while...
Life takes us into it's surf, and I didn't get to do that...
But I will never forget a conversation, in the light of the love that you and David shared, a welcome to Michigan...and a friend that I will never forget.

Hugs David.

I am so saddened by this news and my prayers go out to Dave and all of Lyra's family.


Stand Not There
~Ruth Kephart~

Stand not by my grave and weep
Where my bodyís buried cold and deep
I am not, nor, were ever there
Beneath the ground now striped and bare

Stand not by my casket closed
Head bowed down, your stance reposed
Wherein the lowly vessel lies
I am not there, mine is the skies

Please, stand not under falling rain
In cemetery filled with pain
Where mourners gather out of love
I am not there, Iíve rose above

Oh stand not there, and do not cry
My dearest friends, Iíll tell you why
Iíve gone to greater places far
Above soft clouds and glistening star

'Till one day we shall meet once more
Where angels sing on golden shore
So do not stand there, do not weep
Let my body go, my memory keep

__________________________________________________
Lyra...I know you've gone to a better place met by those you once held so dear, but those you've left behind feel the hole your passing has left. Perhaps someday, we will write together under sunny skies, in fields of flowers, near babbling brooks and where there is no more pain, no more sorrow...until then my friend, know your presence is missed.

David, and family...

Nan and Mysteria kept me apprised as they could of the on-going care and love you gave our our Chipmunk.  In our archives are the chestnuts of poetry that she shared with us.  Please know, that her memory will live with us as long as Passions has a place on the web.  Even more - we will soon hold a book that bears her poetry, and her name.  Please know she was a wonderful friend to so many of us here.  Thank you, dear man, for sharing your loving wife with us.

God bless you.

Although she knew the danger
Of the illness deep within
When Lyra came to Tampa
We were dazzled by her grin.



She laughed and entertained us
With the stories of her life
And one could see the happiness
She felt as David's wife.



For all the courage shown, my friend,
Here's looking at you, kid.
Do chipmunks go to heaven? YES!
I know one who just did..




She was a wonderful and courageous lady who accepted her situation with dignity, strength, and the determination to fight to the end, which I'm sure she did...
Go with God, dear Lyra..

Michael, what a beautiful poem for and about Lyra.
I will never forget her kindness in lending me support when I needed it and I so enjoyed her presence in Florida.

David, I especially remember your help in the scavenger hunt and the wonderful dinner we shared together before you drove me to the airport. She was so courageous and David, you lit up her life as she did ours and it showed in every way.

You have my sympathy in your loss and my gratitude in sharing Lyra with us.

Oh no! This upsets me terribly. At this moment I am speechless. Lyra was my dearest friend. We talked on the phone many times.

She inspired us with her courage and enriched all our lives with her caring.
She will be missed.  May God give her rest and give comfort to her family.

She was a precious little ChipperMunk, with the fortitude of a tigress~

God speed, dear lady ... home within His loving care~

Mine softly fall at Lyra's passing, but gently moisturize the memories of that courageous lady who came to New Poet Richey in September to join her 'Friends Of The Circle'~

She was ... well, she just was an earth and now, bless her heart she has her wings~

Dave, you were a blessing of love to Lyra~
Our prayers are with you and her children and family~
Sincerely~

Lyra~ You will sadly be missed by all and forgotten by none.

Her pin will write no more
Her legacy she leaves for all too read
Her memory will remain forevermore
Tonight her poetry I will read

Special people live forever in our hearts, so poets here have a form of immortality I guess.

What is life without poetry and adventure?
"Little sister" is just another way of saying "Guardian Angel"!
