Lyra The Original 1952 – 2015

The more I cry.. the more I understand.

I sincerely believe that.

What Lyra taught me was that we have a voice, that can be heard, and it can be loud.. and it can also be silent.

The test of time captures only one thing, our experiences. The times we spent with that person… and that applies to every single individual relationships we have. We cannot avoid this stuff, we are humans, affected by what we feel.

Lyra is gone. But.. she is not gone. She lives in our own lives, in the way that we have had little moments with her, and those of thos precious few that cracked her shell, to know that she is a very gentle soul. Those precious times, we need to hold onto.

Lyra reached out, and so we should, as a community, that is her legacy. To reach out.

We have lost an important person, but its not the loss that we should feel. Its what she did and said for us, that should matter.

Cherish your moments with Lyra, I do, but remember, she spoke for the few that had no voice.


Pam – There were many who expressed loss with Lyra’s passing, me included. I miss her.
