I just loved her performance as The Merry Widow. I only spoke to her once when I met her on the street near Lincoln Center and she was very gracious. May she rest in peace.

I had the opportunity to learn of Beverly Sills when my family and I were living in Connecticut. I remember watching Sills and Burnett at The Met and being absolutely in awe of this beautiful human being, who gave so much to the world of opera and was loved by many for her love, compassion, and sense of humor, even when she was going through some difficult times in her life. I never had the opportunity to hear her when she was at The Met, but hearing her sing on You Tube brings such joy to my life. Your fans and friends miss you Beverly, but your memory will live on!

For Beverly...

To this day the sound of
your voice brings such pleasure.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I had the pleasure of babysitting for Muffy and Bucky in 1961 in Milton. My parents knew Beverly and Peter. I was a "big sister" to Nancy Greenough at Milton Academy where we were both students. I have followed their mother's career ever since. I send my prayers and thoughts to the whole family.

Go rest high on that mountain.
Your work on earth is complete. Go to heaven shouting love for thy father and the son. So long,dear lady.

What a wonderful voice whose sound has been in my heart for many years. I was 57 when I read your book which you wrote at the age of 57. You will be greatly missed by all those who ever heard you sing.

My deepest sympathies to entire family. I was briefly friends with her niece, Melanie Cohen, before we both married, moved and lost touch with one another, but I have thought of both of them often. (Every time I make Aunt Bubbles tuna salad recipe. That was exotic cooking for us back then.) What a gift and what an amazing life, too short. Sincerest condolences.

Dear Beverly You were a singing siren for God and all! My father, Luigi Macchiaverna, absolutely adored you. Sing Catholic/Jewish and Italian in God's heavenly kingdom! God is happy with you and the Blessed Mother is also. Bless your family, by God to sit shiva gracefully for you! Love Dave, Tyrone, (age ll) and Jenny Macchiaverna Davis and pets!

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers. Her beautiful voice, the artistry of her performances and the joy and charm of her persona will live on in the memory of her loyal fans.
