Lynette, James and Boys -- To re-introduce myself, I am Rose Russell's grandmother in Austin. My daughter, Kellye, shared your story with me last year and I have talked with the Lord almost daily since then about your precious Sydney and your family. My plan that I offered to God -- and yours, I'm sure -- was for Sydney's healing to be an incredible and amazing testimony to the Lord's healing touch. And so it is. Sydney is totally healed of everything this world touched her with, and, in looking at the precious picture of her you have on this home page, I can see her sitting at the feet of her dear Jesus. I can't imagine how much you will miss your daughter! But I know that God's amazing grace is real and is healing, and will sustain you until we all gather together with the Lord. Bless you for sharing your hurts, your sorrows, your joys, your victories -- in short, for letting the Body of Christ be a part of your story. The Lord entrusted you with Sydney, and has now entrusted you with her life's testimony. Again, I pray for you to embrace His powerful, amazing grace today, and every day until you once again hold Sydney in your arms.

Your journey inspired our family in building lasting traditions of faith, prayer and unity now. Our children are young but their faith and love for Jesus has grown during your trial. Thank you for your inspiration and love for your family and your Lord. We'll continue to lift you up. God Bless You.

I am sad to hear about Sydney's passing, but we all know where she is..in the loving arms of her ABBA...with a body fully-restored and a joy inexpressible. We share in your pain and pray to help shoulder this burden of missing your "little one." She joins other children her age playing, singing, dancing, talking, laughing....We are with you in Spirit. Much love, Laura and Brook Smith & family

Lynette and James,
Your precious daughter did more for the body of Christ in her eight years than any of us will do in our lifetime. Your family has united people from all over the world, This is a true picture of the invisible church. We love you deeply and are grieving with you. We are looking forward to seeing your unique and wonderful Sydney in heaven. Thank you for who you are!

I want you all to know what a true blessing Sydney and her journey was to our family. Aside from praying for her as a family--each of my big kids prayed independently for your sweet daughter and her brothers. They have been so dilligent in their prayers--thank you for allowing such a personal walk be so public. Our family will take a new approach to our faith and prayers because of Sydney.
I pray that today will be a wonderful day to remember Sydney and honor Christ. I pray your family will be sustained during this difficult time and I pray you all will be able to ease back into things as soon and as simply as possible. We will never forget this walk and will continue to lift up the Thweatts in prayer.
In His love...
Taylor, Jennifer, Colin, Emily, Sarah and Mary

As I wake up this morning and am called to pray
for you this day. A day to mourn, but also a day to praise the Lord for the wonderful life of Sydney.
I ask the Holy Spirit to come and surround this family and to feel the presence of Him as this
Thank you Father for the promise of the sunrise and the sunset on this day and the hope that Lynette talks about in her posting.
Help us to be changed forever by the life of Sydney as we live on to serve you and honor her memory and what You accomplished through her.
I Love you,

First and foremost...I know Sydney is now pain free and dancing in heaven with her cute little polished toenails!
I live in OC CA and I do not know you nor your family. A friend of a friend told me about you. However I feel I have come to really know you through the wonderful & inspiring journals that have been created. I have been with you in spirit and in heart since the beginnining. Your journals have been like a "LIVE" book to me. I am always on the edge of my seat and need to know what is going on and exactly how I need to pray. I share this with my family, friends and my ladies bible study meeting each week. My prayer is now for you and your families to believe and trust that little Sydney is at peace and her spirit will tickle you when you least expect it. Jesus Loves You...He will never forsake you. Sydney brought MANY to Christ...I KNOW this. In His name I keep you all in my prayers, Sherry Sparacino & family.

I would like to extend my sympathy to you and your family. I feel like I know you even though we have never met. I kept you all in my prayers and I trust that Our Lord has a plan even if it is not what we wanted. It is so comforting to know that your precious Sydney has been promoted to glory and is smiling down on us and sitting next to Jesus.

How encouraging to watch your faith in our Lord! Even in the midst of tremendous physical hurt, it's been an encouragement to watch you know that our Lord is sovereign and that His plans are perfect, even though we don't understand. Know that I will continue to pray for you, that you will continue to place your trust in the One who created Sidney and who is in charge of all of our lives! Press on!

I remember walking into the gym one afternoon to find Sydney playing on the risers that had been set up for something that was going on that night. Her mom was busy trying to set things up and she was smiling at me holding onto a well used platypus. Her smile was so captivating that I couldn't help but ask her, GǣSydney, how come you're so pretty?Gǥ She didn't even bat an eye. She looked right back at me, and answered confidently, GǣBecause God made me that way.Gǥ

Sydney was one of my favorite regular visitors at the front desk when I first started working at Providence. Whether she was sitting behind the desk pretending to be Lisa Summers, refusing to leave when Lynette asked her to come out from behind the desk because, as Lisa Summers, she had to work, or she was in front of the desk standing on her tip toes trying to prop her casted arm on the counter. I remember laughing when I asked her how she broke her arm, and she started out the story with her available hand on her hip, GǣWellGǪI was walking around in my high healsGǪGǥ

I am so sorry. The last thing I wanted to happen to this girl was for her to die at such a young age. Sydney, this one is for you. STAY GOLD SYDNEY, BECAUSE THERE IS STILL GOOD IN THE WORLD. Family, if you get a chance, listen to the song "Yesterdays" by Switchfoot. It is a sad but powerful song.

I just wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss, when I saw that Sydney is no longer with us I was so heartbroken. But reading about how God has kept you up and how He restored Sydney before taking her with Him was more than encouraging. Only God can do something like that. I can't even imagine how deep your loss is, and you and your family are in my prayers. Your faith in Christ is one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen and He'll bless you for that when you are all together with Him.
