We are so saddened that your precious daughter, Sydney, has lost her battle with Leukemia. As you may remember, Janet serves on the board for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, and was so hoping that Sydney would recover. Our thoughts & prayers are with you now as you try to get through this most difficult time. Sydney was truly an inspiration to us all, and had such courage. Please know that we care.

Dear Lynette and James,
My daughter and I attended Sydney's memorial service yesterday and were so deeply moved by the celebration of Sydney's life! After the service my daughter commented, "Mom, I walked into the service feeling sad for Sydney and her family and I left the service feeling happy! I think Sydney would have liked that!"
Thank you for so openly sharing your heartwrenching journey with us. As you encourged us, we will continue to pray!

dear lynette and james,
i never met sydney but i donated platlets in the spring for her. i have followed your painful journey and it is with great sadness that i send you my condolences. i thought she was getting better so on a side note checked the website and found out the distressful news. your faith in Christ is very admirable. i am a strong believer that God works in mysterious ways. having lived with sydney's illness, you have learned alot about life, faith and have met wonderful people who have helped you. you realized that the life she was living was not fair but it is ultimately in God's hands that we rest our faith. God has a new angel in Heaven, I believe it is a wonderful place, free from pain and sorrow. My younger sister passed away 11 years ago from leukemia. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I speak to her, and I feel she is always near. Take care of yourselves and keep the faith. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family as you begin the long process of healing. God bless you.

Lynette,James & Boys,
I can't begin to imagine the pain hovering over your hearts right now. Sydney was a special little girl. She accomplished more than many have in an entire lifetime. She was alittle warrior,strong in spirit, and undaunted by her illness, or by the overwhelming odds against her. In her beat a heart of a champion .I know she is wearing one of the "crowns of glory". I know that you must feel the love & prayers that are being sent you way, so hold on to that to keep you strong.I am praying for you everyday.
Love, Ms. Nancy

I was sad to hear of Sydney's passing, and sad not to get a chance to say goodbye. It was truly amazing to get to know such a wonderful family and such a wonderful little girl as Sydney! I know she is in a better place now. But we can all remember her as a fun-loving, high-spirited, brave girl. Your family faith and family bond have really touched my heart, and it was a pleasure being in your lives.

James, I got a call from Donna and she told me about your daughter. I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like she was a wonderful child with a great spirit and had a wonderful loving supportive family and friends by her side. I can't even imagine what to say to you and you family at this time but to remember what a wonderful time you all had together as a family remember her spirit and her smile and what joy she brought to everyone's life she touched. James, I haven't seen you since our last reunion and I hope you remember me, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love Jonni

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I am friends with Lucinda Buford and she has shared Sydney's journey with me over the last year. I lost my daughter to AML more than three years ago when she was nine months and now run Heroes for Children in her memory in Dallas.
Sadly, the pain never goes away, but it does ease a bit. I miss my daughter every day and wish she were here with us, but her memory carries on and the memories are happy ones, not sad. I remember the smiles and the shining vibrant eyes. I hope that for you and your family. If you ever want to speak to another mother who has "been there," Lynette, I am always available.
Lastly, I know I am a stranger and this is stepping over my bounds a bit, but I have a suggestion--If you can, take a trip with your family. I sincerely credit that for saving my marriage after the death of our daughter. We focused on our family, our love, and escaped the good hearts and good intentions of family and friends. We were able to isolate ourselves a bit and blend in to a crowd where no one knew us or our pain (we took a cruise). It helped in our case, it really did. I suggest that if you can, give it a thought.
Please know I am thinking of your family.

Sydney's service today was absolutely beautiful. The music was uplifting, the slide show was endearing, the stories were joyful and captivating. AJ giggled with delight in the car as we left the ceremony...sorry, Johnson, but we loved hearing how you hid out in Sydney's Barbie playhouse! You were a great big brother with a very big heart! I am sure Sydney watched from the heavens and delighted in every thoughtful detail! May God bless you each with the joy of many beautiful memories and the solace and comfort of family and friends. I still pray and wish for you peace.

Dear Thweatt Family,
I am deeply sorry for your loss, but we have hope that Sydney was that dear little star in this life, and she lived God's plan to the fullest; never giving up!! She is a HUGE inspiration in this world!! Sydney has brought many to Christ, and she had such a positive outlook on her life; even in the most extreme conditions!! When I am ever down, I learned to keep a prayer journal, and write the good things that happened throughout the day; I learned to do so through Sydney. our family (and many more) have been touched by her spirit!! God bless you!

We were so sorry to hear about Sydney. We were all inspired by her strength. We walked in the Light the Night walk in our area last night, we placed two gold memory ribbons on the boys banner for Sydney. We know your faith will help you through this difficult time. We will never forget your wonderful family. God Bless You all.
