Bev was always a treat to be around. "Bubbles" was a perfect nickname. My family had a house in West Chop on the Vineyard. Bev had hers down the beach from us. Would see her in the grocery wearing a moo.moo (sp?). She would practice on the old upright piano in the Chop's "Casino." Peter was a cousin of mine and very family oriented. I knew his brother who was into hifi in the early days. At Harvard I had one of the first stereo radio setups; Vos came over one day to marvel. Peter called himself the bionic man for all the operations he had. Bev told me I had the "best legs in the family!" Miss her a lot. Heard her sing live only once.

I first heard Beverly Sills in 1978 on TV. I had recently won a singing contest in an outdoor pavilion at Como Park, St. Paul, MN. I danced tap and began ballet lessons. I taught myself piano and played "Here Comes The Bride", "Moon River", "Pomp And Circumstance", among others. I saw my first opera on PBS Ch. 2.
I sang in our local church choir, Glee club in H.S. I've loved opera ever since my father played "Ave Maria" on the victrola at home. I have loved hearing Ms. Sills arias and operas even now. I am 63. I have missed her splendid voice and bubbly personality and her cheerful disposition. I miss her.
But now I have YouTube videos of all recorded songs she sung all her life to cherish forever. Now this Diva sings for God's heavenly choir of angels for eternity. SLee

Beverly Sills was a great lady and full of life and fun. I met her twice after performances, and she asked my name. (We share the same last name.)
She then asked if we were related, to which I replied, "No, I wish we were!" Then she let out that great laugh she had. She was a great advocate of the arts. She is missed!

Your voice still thrills me, even to this day. I miss you! Rest in peace.

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.
