I am so sorry to hear this.

Thank you Nan, and thank you for the beautiful pictures Nan and Michael.  David, please know that my thoughts are with you and your family. Lyra was a lovely woman with a heart of gold, and we will miss her so very dearly.  

I know that of the many smilies Iíve created for this site, my favorite has always been Lyraís little chipmunk.  I will forever keep this little smilie safely in my heart for her and her alone.  

Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I havenít been around lately, but got this news from a friend. Iím so sorry to hear of thisÖI had been so hoping that a miracle would be there for Lyra, and that her strength and optimism, mixed with all our prayers, were going to make that miracle come true. Dave, my thoughts are with you and the rest of your family. We are all blessed to have known Lyra, if only for a short time. I think God saved a special place in heaven for her.

Rest in peace Lyra....
The angelic woman who was friendly to all,
and a true inspiration.
Lyra always took the time to read and comment on my poems, she was so supportive!

My thoughts are with lyra and fam.

Tears slide gently down my cheeks
This world's a poorer place
But with what joy our Lyra greets
Her son's beloved face!
She touched us all and her bright smiles
Will be so sorely missed
But weeping hearts have not one doubt
Today she's angel kissed.

I lack the words... I'm just grateful she graced us with her loving presence... her words and courage and joy in life will never be forgotten.
David, you and your family have my deepest sympathy... thank you for sharing her with us.

I first became an on-line friend of Lyra during my Moontown Cafe days. Almost immediately, it was apparent that she was someone special.

I have never known of any on-line acquaintance/friend to have died

You were special indeed, Lyra, RIP.

I'm never good at this..but honestly and truly I'm heart goes out to Lyra and her family..may the angels hold them close tonight and for the rest of their lives..I didn't really know her that well but seeing her on these pages reading her poems and reading her responses made me in peace always and forever will be in my thoughts and prayers

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

My deepest sympathies go out to Lyra's family and friends.  She was a rare, gentle woman who will quite obviously be missed as much as she will be remembered by many across her own country and the world.

I did not get the chance to know Lyra over the time I was here, but I did get to read her poetry.  Her words and kindness will be miss.  My thoughts are also with her family and friends.

A Walk In Tall Grasses

Come with me, said she
shyly, but wisely
in the veldt of helpless sorrow
I saw her shadow wilt

Be brave, for His hand is in yours
said she,
slipping her thoughts into mine
For the briefest of moments,
I felt violated as her soul found mine
and we walked, not talking,
souls conversing, complacent

Shed a short tear for now
Long is the weep for the future
without a loved one
But longer is the Rejoining together
of all Who Are Loved.

And I wept
for the family, for their loss
for the absent days of looking for her
and the disappointment of not finding

Gently, she wiped my cheek
and said: Soon, my friend,
you shall walk in Eden with me
and the grasses bent to her invisible feet
while I bent to my knees
and kissed the ground she had left

For Lyra Nesius 3/20/03
and for the family
with much love from Dulcy and Jeff

Rest well, dearest Chipmunk, and if Heaven is online, you will see the candle flicker as your light dims this world just a bit. May those still on this mortal coil find solace and peace.

I have just read this very sad news.

In loving Memory of Lyra aka/Little Chippy

There is a hollow ache that stirs within
the world is a little less brighter
A soul named Lyra has left us here
and travels in the light of forever

I took for granted knowing time was marked
I wrapped my thinking around tomorrow
Out of the loop
not wanting to believe
the moment would come

It is a loss shared by many
to be coped with alone

Letting go, we must.
Little Chippy,
I let the tears release
You leave behind many who have loved you
cared for you, believed in you and
received strength from you
even when you had so little left to give.

I pray for those you loved
and wish you
God speed towards the light.

Electra aka/SimplyGold

I'm so sorry to hear this and I thank Sharon and Michael for passing this on to me.  I didn't know her well, but, from what I did know of her, she was a a genuine sweet and classy lady.  Her family will be in my prayers.
