Sarah, I haven't been sleeping well lately, something has been brewing inside my soul memory. Although it's been 8 years this date always smacks me in the face. Trauma never leaves the body, science has now proven this, but you and I are empathic light workers. We always felt and trusted our insight, I have felt your insight, especially last July. Thank you for reminding me that the greatest gift ever is coming home to yourself. With time the acute pain of your passing has faded, your memory will never leave me, your love and light lives on in my heart. No one is ever truly gone. I'll see you again, on the flip side my best friend. All my love soul sister ???11:11

I know you are with me, though I wish we could visit more; however, I know this ties you to our world. You are happiness, joy, beauty, and inspiration. You are everything to me & I cannot wait to see you again, my darling girl. Love you forever.

Although its been years, It seems like yesterday when I danced with Sarah in countless Nutcrackers. She was my best dance pal, and I always looked forward to seeing her in class. She made me laugh and was an amazing dancer. We shared many years on stage and behind the curtains and had many moments I will never forget. We used to trade clothes, and I'll never forget her brown bell bottoms with large orange flowers she let me borrow. She had an amazing and unique style. Although I haven't seen her in awhile, I will never forget her. It was so easy to be around her, it was so easy to be her friend. Those years will not be forgotten. Praying for all.

I will never forget the absolutely beautiful little blonde haired, blue-eyed ballerina. I was very proud of you! I am so devastated for her parent's and brother's loss. As a parent myself, I can't fathom it, and I still am finding it hard to believe this is even true. I know she was welcomed with open arms by her Grammy and Pappy and I am sure he is dancing a polka with her until we are all reunited again. I love you and will miss you Sarah. Our family has lost such a bright, talented, sweet soul. Love, your cousin, Tanja

When Sarah was working in an assisted living home locally, she called (mom) asking me to bring a forgotten item. When I arrived, she met me in the hallway, where residents were waiting to receive their medication(s). She introduced me as her mom to each of the residents. As we spoke, an elderly woman began to cry loudly. Sarah went to her, kneeled at eye-level, took the woman's hands in hers, and asked what was wrong. Edna (not official name) responded that she could not find her purse. Soon her cries became sobs. Sarah said not to worry, that she would find it and went off to look. Returning Sarah gave Edna a purse. Edna was all smiles and kissed Sarah on the cheek. As she rejoined me, I remarked how glad I was that she found the purse. Sarah looked at me and whispered, "Mom, Edna doesn't have a purse, so I gave her mine." Sarah had a heart of gold. She loved working with the elderly and animals and all were to be treated with dignity and respect in her eyes. This world would be a better place if we all practiced Sarah's humanity.

A few years ago, Sarah worked at a local assisted living home. One day I received a call to bring an item she had forgotten. She met me in a lobby where residents were waiting to receive their medications. Sarah introduced me to each person as "her mom". As we talked, an elderly woman began to cry loudly. Sarah went to Edna (not official name), kneeled to be at eye-level, took Edna's hands in hers, and asked what was wrong. Edna sobbed that she could not find her purse. Sarah told her not to worry that she would bring her purse. A few minutes later, she returned handing a purse to Edna, who was all smiles and kissed Sarah on the cheek. I told her that I was glad she found Edna's purse to which Sarah replied, "Mom, Edna doesn't have a purse. I gave her mine." Sarah had/has a heart of good. She loved working with the elderly and animals. As you have read from others' comments, she did not judge. Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. How I miss her! Sarah's mom, Moneen

When Sarah moved from her crib to the "big girl's" bed, she'd frequently would get out of her bed and come downstairs. One of those times, I instructed her as usual to return to her bed. This night she began to climb those stairs, sucking her two fingers with her "blankie" held below her nose. Sarah stopped, looked at her Dad and said, " I love you my precious, Daddy!" Needless-to-say, she was back on the sofa with Daddy reading her favorite books! How she loved her Daddy!

Sarah - my dancer. She danced ballet since age 5 with 95% of her studies at Vostrikov Academy. How she loved to dance! In 1993 she danced "Clara" in the nutcracker and danced exquisitively. While I sat praying, "Please don't let her fall, please don't let her fall", my brother cried tears of joy. The actual "nutcracker" prompt fell and broke when Clara's brother threw it on the stage dislodging one arm, she did not panic, but rather beautifully improvised. The stage was hers and she danced it as such. There was never a better or more wicked witch than when she danced "Hansel & Gretel". Her performance was outstanding and people sitting around us, not knowing we were her parents, whispered, 'Who is this girl? She's incredible!" Later backstage, her maestro told me that Sarah had improvised nearly 75% of the dance! After the performance, the dancers sat on stage and the audience was able to ask questions of them. The children approached her, mostly hiding behind their mothers' skirts. One little boy found the courage to ask, "Why are your teeth so black?" to which Sarah replied in her wickedly, funny voice, "Because I ate toooo much can-day!" Her sense of humor and wit lit many faces and most of all ours. Sarah was strong, a powerful source, and completely believed in herself. Her gifts were many: dancing, writing poems and prose. When she entered to 10th grade, her guidance counselor met with us and urged us to allow Sarah to get her GED and go on to college. 'We have nothing to offer her here", he said. Hindsight is 20/20. She was terribly bored in school and, much to the school's chagrin, she created her own entertainment while there. But gifted children are frequently punished for being so bright. When in fourth grade, Sarah would come home from school telling me she did not have recess once again, but had to stand against the wall and watch her friends play. Being an educator, I quickly scheduled an meeting with her teacher. When asked about why Sarah missed so many recesses, the teacher replied, "Because she asks too many questions?" What - too many questions??? Sarah had intense curiosty about the world in which she lived. In the end, I guess either the world could not understand who she was/is or she could not understand this world. Sharing these stories give me peace during this wretched time of grief. I am glad to have the opportunity to do so. Bear with me. Sarah's mom, Moneen

The first song on Sarah's tribute video was written by her father, he playing lead guitar and my son, Matthew, on trombone. The second was one of her favorite Jimi Hendrix tunes. I failed to mention that Sarah also played a mean trombone! Sarah's mom, Moneen

With Sarah's 29th birthday approaching I've found myself missing her so very much. I bought a picture frame that states "It is not important how long a star shines but how brilliant it shines." I've been remembering how many hikes Sarah I and took down skyline drive. Especially when I was first learning to drive and I took my white jeep everywhere with her. I spent my 16th birthday with her and she bought me a tie dye shirt that I still own. I'll never go to our waterfall without remembering all our fun times there. Most of the time it was just us girls but on occasion boys that passed through our lives went with us. Sarah and I also spent a lot of time meditating. I find myself evoking her energy when I sit in my healing room. She was also the first person that I ever gave a reiki session and now I work on 1,000 pound horses. I went to a zumba class last week and laughed out loud at what a horrible dancer I am. Sarah would have had a good laugh too. I miss you Sarah so very much. I'm so glad that we have a safe place to share your spirit. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Sarah's family.

Sarah, elementary school age, had an ongoing joke with the father of very close friends. It went like this: M R ducks. M R not. M R too . . . see M itty, bitty eyes! Not sure I captured its entirety, but the two of them would laugh hysterically. Sarah always had a great sense of humor . . . always made others laugh. So what does her mother now drive?

When my mother, who had Alzheimer's Disease, lived with me, Sarah was her primary care-taker. Mom wasn't quite clear as to who Sarah was but knew she should know her. She waited eagerly for Sarah's arrival each day and was thrilled when she saw her. When I would come home from work, I'd hear the music blaring and upon opening the kitchen door, there would be my mom dancing throughout the house with Sarah and frequently her boyfriend. Mom was thrilled and so very, very happy! What a gift Sarah gave to her in the last months of mom's life. She loved her 'Grammy' dearly. Sarah took under her wing the weak, the downtrodden, those cast out by others, people considered 'different', the elderly, and the homeless regardless of race or class. Sarah loved people unconditionally and they adored her. I know why God put Sarah on this earth, I don't know why He took her home so early. Sarah's mom, Moneen

My Sweet Sarah, Remember when you suspended yourself from high school??!!! You had to run from Latin class to another class, which was on the other side of the school. The bell rang and you were standing inside the classroom doorway; however, you were not 2 inches inside the door and were told to go to the office. Your debate fell upon silent ears. You spoke your mind, regarding injustices, as only you could, went to the office, promptly suspended yourself, and drove home - never to return again. Oh, we should've sent you to college in 10th grade as your high school counselor recommended! You battled injustice for all people for the rest of your short-lived life. How proud I was of you for taking on the battles of other, who were not as strong or could not debate as well as you. How I love and miss you, Sarah. Love you, Mom

Well, girl, we're off to Atlantic City. Of course, you're coming - I don't go anywhere without you! Now, since you'll be looking at the casino from above, please send some hints regarding lucky numbers! Soaking in the sun, you'll be drawn to the rhythms of the ocean, as a siren sings to the lost. One day soon, I will take the remainder of your ashes to Positano, Italia and spread them in the Tyrranhean Sea, where the mermaids called to the sailors from the Syraneuse Islands. We'll dance in the streets with the residents of Sorrento! Then Roma, where you'll join fellow artists on the Piazza Navona. I want you to meet Michele, the finger puppeteer. My loss is diminishing as I realize fully now that you are with me each moment every day. I love you my, Sarah. Mom Miss hearing from you, Sarah's friends.

Yeah Moneen! So glad your getting away to enjoy the last bits of the summer harvest season. Please call me when you get back. I haven't been able to get a response about a candle/copy of Sarah's video and I haven't wanted to intefere with your own grieving process. I'm planning a trip to Sorrento next May. I had something I wanted to drop in the ocean for Sarah this weekend when I was in Charleston SC but it just didn't feel like the right place. I'm thinking the outer banks as I know she loved it there too. Since it was Jerry week in the music world I've listen to a ton of music that reminds me of Sarah. Such creative minds are often lost to early in our society. Mostly because they are just to good, pure for our world.

Given the date of her birthday, Sarah could have gone to kindergarten when she was barely 5 years. She still sucked her two fingers and held her "blankie" simultaneously under her nose. We felt she was too young and waited another year. Well, after her first day of kindergarten, I met her at the end of our driveway, as she insisted on riding the bus (always so independent). Sarah and I entered the kitchen where, after depositing her bookbag and lunch box, she put those little hands on her hips, looked me straight in the eye, and said, "You made a mistake! I should have gone last year. I already know everything in kindergarten. I'm going to be bored all my school life!" And right she was. Sarah was bored all her school years. She did have a couple of people who understood her completely and marveled at her intelligence: her junior high music teacher and her high school counselor. They treated her with dignity and respect. As an educator myself in the public school system, I feel the right to say every teacher needs to follow the example of the two aforementioned teachers. Accept the gifts and uniqueness in every child. Teach to each child's level and raise the bar rather than teaching to the average student. When treated with dignity and respect, students will respond likewise. There is no room for "power" and "control" in the classroom. Management is the key word. Forgive me Sarah for having allowed you to experience all the negativity in school simply because you were too bright and would never submit to injustices. I hope you are having all the recesses you missed in the fourth grade in Heaven now. Swing high and far, my girl! I can see you now. Love you forever, Mom

The last chance I had to spend quality time with Sarah there were 3 feet of snow on the ground. She was wearing that horrible blue wig and she ran outside and picked me up. She then proceeded to carry me into the house. My husbands first words to her were "damn girl, your strong." Sarah was strong, brave, and tough! The time before that she came out to my parents farmhouse and we spent time catching up on the events of our life. We climbed a huge tree in the front yard and watched the sunset. Sarah cooked dinner that night and helped me host old friends. I never knew that she could cook like that and I'm thankful for these most recent moments with her. I miss you most when the moon is full soul sister...

Sarah, Remember when Mr. Whiskers was missing? We tried to reassure you Mr. Whiskers was possibly still alive - just wandering throughout the neighborhood. Well, Matthew set us straight! Our service was held for Mr. Whiskers, after your father dug nearly 3 times before he could hit dirt & not rock in our yard. You were so strong and brave and patient. Remember, we planted the lovely Audrey Hepburn roses on Whisker's grave. Those roses still grow, as I know you do so in Heaven. How I love and miss you, my baby. Smell the roses, baby.

As a ballet instructor to small children, Sarah was a delight to watch either on the side of the stage or on the stage leading her little ones through their dance(s). After performances, her babes would surround her off stage hugging and kissing her. They adored her and she adored them. Her beaming smile and their giggles and grins were precious to behold.

Sarah- It was so wonderful to celebrate your life last week. I must admit I've been quite sad since we did this. I hate that you cannot participate and be with all those that love you. I hate that I cannot ever call you again or enjoy some girls time with you. You changed my life. I was not popular and didn't have many friends. You took the time to befriend me, encoaurged me, and helped mold me into who I am today. I know you are proud of me. Although it is months later I feel extremely angry that you will never get in my vehicle again and change the CD 100 times. You were my best friend and you can never replace the friends of your youth- i'll never have anyone like you again. Everyone knows that friendships change with age but I can't say that they improve because life just gets busy and you do things out of necessity, not always love. I'm glad to spend time with your other friends because I realize that you were someone we all wanted for ourselves. Most of us were jealous when you had a serious boyfriend or a new friend. You were the kind of person that you just wanted to yourself. Maybe that is a curse of a blessing but we all loved you and it speaks to the kind of friend and love you offered. I know you were with us too! See you soul sister. love you.

Sarah, It has been awhile since I wrote but I have thought of you every day. I can't beleive that a year has passed since you left this world. Life just isn't the same without you in it. I found a passage that reminds me of our friendship and I wanted to share it with you. "They are love, those rare, blinding early friendships. Not everyone has them, and almost no one gets more than one. The other, the later ones, are not the same. These first grow in a soil found only in the country of the young, and are possible only there because their medium is unbroken time and proximity and discovery, and later there is not enough of these for the total, ongoing immersions that these friendships are. It charmed us, soothed us, fed us, consumed us. We discovered in each other and ourselves worlds, galaxies, a universe." I miss all our magic. I love you forever. Kristin

Your 30th Birthday is all most upon us. How I wish that you were here so that we could be planning a party. I feel very sad that your life ended before we could celebrate 3 decades on this planet together. My solace is that I know you do not suffer the same pain that those of us on earth experience. I know that you are not lonely, sad, and that you never cry. I know that you are not in pain and that you are beautiful and full of joy. You made so many birthdays very speical for me and I wish that I could make this one special for you. There is a full moon on your birthday this year.

Tonight a full moon in honor of you and your 30th. Your Leo spirit is all around. I will look at the moon tonight and I will toast to you in your favorite wine glass. I love you dearly Sarah. I so wish you were here. Those of us who truly loved you, knew you, and were only positive influences in your life will never be the same without your presence. So dance with Jerry to sugar magnolia today sweet, beautiful friend.

For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed. When you part from your friend, you grieve not. For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain. And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. And let your best be for your friend. If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also. For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live. For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness. And the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. Kahlil Gibran

The Touch of the Master's Hand 'Twas battered and scarred, And the auctioneer thought it hardly worth his while To waste his time on the old violin, but he held it up with a smile. "What am I bid, good people", he cried, "Who starts the bidding for me?" "One dollar, one dollar, Do I hear two?" "Two dollars, who makes it three?" "Three dollars once, three dollars twice, going for three," But, No, From the room far back a gray bearded man Came forward and picked up the bow, Then wiping the dust from the old violin And tightening up the strings, He played a melody, pure and sweet As sweet as the angel sings. The music ceased and the auctioneer With a voice that was quiet and low, Said "What now am I bid for this old violin?" As he held it aloft with its' bow. "One thousand, one thousand, Do I hear two?" "Two thousand, Who makes it three?" "Three thousand once, three thousand twice, Going and gone", said he. The audience cheered, But some of them cried, "We just don't understand." "What changed its' worth?" Swift came the reply. "The Touch of the Masters Hand." And many a man with life out of tune All battered with bourbon and gin Is auctioned cheap to a thoughtless crowd Much like that old violin A mess of pottage, a glass of wine, A game and he travels on. He is going once, he is going twice, He is going and almost gone. But the Master comes, And the foolish crowd never can quite understand, The worth of a soul and the change that is wrought By the Touch of the Masters' Hand. Myra Brooks Welch

Dearest Sarah, Tonight is the last full moon of 2012. I can only say that I'm very glad the year will be over. This has not been an easy year and I'm ready to start 2013. We made some good New Years memories especially in 2000. Hard to believe that was 13 years ago and how different out lives turned out. I'll listen to "Wading in the Velvet Sea" since that was always our New Years song. "You won't find moments in a box and someone else will set your clocks. I took a moment from my day; wrapped it up in things you say and mailed it off to you." Love you sweet friend. Happy New Year.

My Beloved, Sarah, It's been so long since I have been able to post (the move, lack of internet connection, tribute wall down, etc). How my heart ached during that time as I always looked forward to the opportunity to speak with you through/on your wall. No need to catch you up to speed as you've held my hand and kept me afloat over these last 3 months. We had (almost) a real winter . . . with SNOW! I love looking at all the pictures of you with your brother and friends and Zeus, of course, playing in the snow. How quickly those days passed. Next week will be spring. I'll be looking for you dancing on and amongst the flowers, my little fairy. There are no words to express what it is like to not have you physically present with me. Not to feel your touch, hug, kiss. Not to hear your laughter or laugh at your jokes. An unbearable loss, sweet one. An empty shell. But your presence is in our cottage in the woods and I know you like it here. And I know that you are with me . . . and I smile. I love you forever, girl. Mommy

When Sarah was working in an assisted living home locally, she called (mom) asking me to bring a forgotten item. When I arrived, she met me in the hallway, where residents were waiting to receive their medication(s). She introduced me as her mom to each of the residents. As we spoke, an elderly woman began to cry loudly. Sarah went to her, kneeled at eye-level, took the woman's hands in hers, and asked what was wrong. Edna (not official name) responded that she could not find her purse. Soon her cries became sobs. Sarah said not to worry, that she would find it and went off to look. Returning Sarah gave Edna a purse. Edna was all smiles and kissed Sarah on the cheek. As she rejoined me, I remarked how glad I was that she found the purse. Sarah looked at me and whispered, "Mom, Edna doesn't have a purse, so I gave her mine." Sarah had a heart of gold. She loved working with the elderly and animals and all were to be treated with dignity and respect in her eyes. This world would be a better place if we all practiced Sarah's humanity.

A few years ago, Sarah worked at a local assisted living home. One day I received a call to bring an item she had forgotten. She met me in a lobby where residents were waiting to receive their medications. Sarah introduced me to each person as "her mom". As we talked, an elderly woman began to cry loudly. Sarah went to Edna (not official name), kneeled to be at eye-level, took Edna's hands in hers, and asked what was wrong. Edna sobbed that she could not find her purse. Sarah told her not to worry that she would bring her purse. A few minutes later, she returned handing a purse to Edna, who was all smiles and kissed Sarah on the cheek. I told her that I was glad she found Edna's purse to which Sarah replied, "Mom, Edna doesn't have a purse. I gave her mine." Sarah had/has a heart of good. She loved working with the elderly and animals. As you have read from others' comments, she did not judge. Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. How I miss her! Sarah's mom, Moneen

When Sarah moved from her crib to the "big girl's" bed, she'd frequently would get out of her bed and come downstairs. One of those times, I instructed her as usual to return to her bed. This night she began to climb those stairs, sucking her two fingers with her "blankie" held below her nose. Sarah stopped, looked at her Dad and said, " I love you my precious, Daddy!" Needless-to-say, she was back on the sofa with Daddy reading her favorite books! How she loved her Daddy!

Although its been years, It seems like yesterday when I danced with Sarah in countless Nutcrackers. She was my best dance pal, and I always looked forward to seeing her in class. She made me laugh and was an amazing dancer. We shared many years on stage and behind the curtains and had many moments I will never forget. We used to trade clothes, and I'll never forget her brown bell bottoms with large orange flowers she let me borrow. She had an amazing and unique style. Although I haven't seen her in awhile, I will never forget her. It was so easy to be around her, it was so easy to be her friend. Those years will not be forgotten. Praying for all.

I will never forget the absolutely beautiful little blonde haired, blue-eyed ballerina. I was very proud of you! I am so devastated for her parent's and brother's loss. As a parent myself, I can't fathom it, and I still am finding it hard to believe this is even true. I know she was welcomed with open arms by her Grammy and Pappy and I am sure he is dancing a polka with her until we are all reunited again. I love you and will miss you Sarah. Our family has lost such a bright, talented, sweet soul. Love, your cousin, Tanja

With Sarah's 29th birthday approaching I've found myself missing her so very much. I bought a picture frame that states "It is not important how long a star shines but how brilliant it shines." I've been remembering how many hikes Sarah I and took down skyline drive. Especially when I was first learning to drive and I took my white jeep everywhere with her. I spent my 16th birthday with her and she bought me a tie dye shirt that I still own. I'll never go to our waterfall without remembering all our fun times there. Most of the time it was just us girls but on occasion boys that passed through our lives went with us. Sarah and I also spent a lot of time meditating. I find myself evoking her energy when I sit in my healing room. She was also the first person that I ever gave a reiki session and now I work on 1,000 pound horses. I went to a zumba class last week and laughed out loud at what a horrible dancer I am. Sarah would have had a good laugh too. I miss you Sarah so very much. I'm so glad that we have a safe place to share your spirit. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Sarah's family.

Sarah - my dancer. She danced ballet since age 5 with 95% of her studies at Vostrikov Academy. How she loved to dance! In 1993 she danced "Clara" in the nutcracker and danced exquisitively. While I sat praying, "Please don't let her fall, please don't let her fall", my brother cried tears of joy. The actual "nutcracker" prompt fell and broke when Clara's brother threw it on the stage dislodging one arm, she did not panic, but rather beautifully improvised. The stage was hers and she danced it as such. There was never a better or more wicked witch than when she danced "Hansel & Gretel". Her performance was outstanding and people sitting around us, not knowing we were her parents, whispered, 'Who is this girl? She's incredible!" Later backstage, her maestro told me that Sarah had improvised nearly 75% of the dance! After the performance, the dancers sat on stage and the audience was able to ask questions of them. The children approached her, mostly hiding behind their mothers' skirts. One little boy found the courage to ask, "Why are your teeth so black?" to which Sarah replied in her wickedly, funny voice, "Because I ate toooo much can-day!" Her sense of humor and wit lit many faces and most of all ours. Sarah was strong, a powerful source, and completely believed in herself. Her gifts were many: dancing, writing poems and prose. When she entered to 10th grade, her guidance counselor met with us and urged us to allow Sarah to get her GED and go on to college. 'We have nothing to offer her here", he said. Hindsight is 20/20. She was terribly bored in school and, much to the school's chagrin, she created her own entertainment while there. But gifted children are frequently punished for being so bright. When in fourth grade, Sarah would come home from school telling me she did not have recess once again, but had to stand against the wall and watch her friends play. Being an educator, I quickly scheduled an meeting with her teacher. When asked about why Sarah missed so many recesses, the teacher replied, "Because she asks too many questions?" What - too many questions??? Sarah had intense curiosty about the world in which she lived. In the end, I guess either the world could not understand who she was/is or she could not understand this world. Sharing these stories give me peace during this wretched time of grief. I am glad to have the opportunity to do so. Bear with me. Sarah's mom, Moneen

When my mother, who had Alzheimer's Disease, lived with me, Sarah was her primary care-taker. Mom wasn't quite clear as to who Sarah was but knew she should know her. She waited eagerly for Sarah's arrival each day and was thrilled when she saw her. When I would come home from work, I'd hear the music blaring and upon opening the kitchen door, there would be my mom dancing throughout the house with Sarah and frequently her boyfriend. Mom was thrilled and so very, very happy! What a gift Sarah gave to her in the last months of mom's life. She loved her 'Grammy' dearly. Sarah took under her wing the weak, the downtrodden, those cast out by others, people considered 'different', the elderly, and the homeless regardless of race or class. Sarah loved people unconditionally and they adored her. I know why God put Sarah on this earth, I don't know why He took her home so early. Sarah's mom, Moneen

My Sweet Sarah, Remember when you suspended yourself from high school??!!! You had to run from Latin class to another class, which was on the other side of the school. The bell rang and you were standing inside the classroom doorway; however, you were not 2 inches inside the door and were told to go to the office. Your debate fell upon silent ears. You spoke your mind, regarding injustices, as only you could, went to the office, promptly suspended yourself, and drove home - never to return again. Oh, we should've sent you to college in 10th grade as your high school counselor recommended! You battled injustice for all people for the rest of your short-lived life. How proud I was of you for taking on the battles of other, who were not as strong or could not debate as well as you. How I love and miss you, Sarah. Love you, Mom

One day soon, I will take the remainder of your ashes to Positano, Italia and spread them in the Tyrranhean Sea, where the mermaids called to the sailors from the Syraneuse Islands. We'll dance in the streets with the residents of Sorrento! Then Roma, where you'll join fellow artists on the Piazza Navona. I want you to meet Michele, the finger puppeteer.

I haven't been able to get a response about a candle/copy of Sarah's video and I haven't wanted to intefere with your own grieving process. I'm planning a trip to Sorrento next May. I had something I wanted to drop in the ocean for Sarah this weekend when I was in Charleston SC but it just didn't feel like the right place. I'm thinking the outer banks as I know she loved it there too. Since it was Jerry week in the music world I've listen to a ton of music that reminds me of Sarah. Such creative minds are often lost to early in our society. Mostly because they are just to good, pure for our world.

Given the date of her birthday, Sarah could have gone to kindergarten when she was barely 5 years. She still sucked her two fingers and held her "blankie" simultaneously under her nose. We felt she was too young and waited another year. Well, after her first day of kindergarten, I met her at the end of our driveway, as she insisted on riding the bus (always so independent). Sarah and I entered the kitchen where, after depositing her bookbag and lunch box, she put those little hands on her hips, looked me straight in the eye, and said, "You made a mistake! I should have gone last year. I already know everything in kindergarten. I'm going to be bored all my school life!" And right she was. Sarah was bored all her school years. She did have a couple of people who understood her completely and marveled at her intelligence: her junior high music teacher and her high school counselor. They treated her with dignity and respect. As an educator myself in the public school system, I feel the right to say every teacher needs to follow the example of the two aforementioned teachers. Accept the gifts and uniqueness in every child. Teach to each child's level and raise the bar rather than teaching to the average student. When treated with dignity and respect, students will respond likewise. There is no room for "power" and "control" in the classroom. Management is the key word. Forgive me Sarah for having allowed you to experience all the negativity in school simply because you were too bright and would never submit to injustices. I hope you are having all the recesses you missed in the fourth grade in Heaven now. Swing high and far, my girl! I can see you now. Love you forever, Mom

The last chance I had to spend quality time with Sarah there were 3 feet of snow on the ground. She was wearing that horrible blue wig and she ran outside and picked me up. She then proceeded to carry me into the house. My husbands first words to her were "damn girl, your strong." Sarah was strong, brave, and tough! The time before that she came out to my parents farmhouse and we spent time catching up on the events of our life. We climbed a huge tree in the front yard and watched the sunset. Sarah cooked dinner that night and helped me host old friends. I never knew that she could cook like that and I'm thankful for these most recent moments with her. I miss you most when the moon is full soul sister...

Sweet Sarah, My soul aches but is eased by Kristin's friendship. We've scheduled getting together October 8th or 9th to hike to your favorite waterfalls & celebrate your continued life. Think there will be reading of your poems and singing Janis! Have been given the okay to clean out your room, but cannot do it. Maybe some day, but not now. You are everywhere in your room. It's my safe haven. Not certain I'll ever fully accept your death. I look for and await you each day. Feeling your arms around me is my comfort and joy. I want to release you & not hold you to this earthly world, but please, please be with me regularly. I love you forever, Mom

You were always there for me during rough times. Your friends have told me that you expressed the same about me. I just want you alive and with me again. I know I will never be the same. Will I ever feel joy again? Come feel my heart. I love you forever. Mom

Sarah, Remember when Mr. Whiskers was missing? We tried to reassure you Mr. Whiskers was possibly still alive - just wandering throughout the neighborhood. Well, Matthew set us straight! Our service was held for Mr. Whiskers, after your father dug nearly 3 times before he could hit dirt & not rock in our yard. You were so strong and brave and patient. Remember, we planted the lovely Audrey Hepburn roses on Whisker's grave. Those roses still grow, as I know you do so in Heaven. How I love and miss you, my baby. Smell the roses, baby.

You had such a gift for this. We agreed that you are 'one of a kind'. How I miss you walking through the door and saying "What's up woman?" in that graveling voice. I can't accept that you are gone. I want to hold you in my arms with your head under my chin, as you always sought. I love you, my Sarah. Mommy

I just wish I could find your "blankie". Each day I go into your room and lay on your bed, as your scent is still there. I know I should be beyond this, however, each day I pray that you will walk through the kitchen door.

Sweet Sarah, I know why God put you on this earth, if only for a short time. In your own intuitive, spiritual way, you helped so many people realize who they were, the purpose of living, and a reason to go on. This is reflected in the many tributes on this wall. You may say, "well, anyone could do that". But people avoid, do not take the time to know the people you have helped. I have witnesses it first-hand. You brought them into our home when they had nowhere else to go. You fed them, you made them laugh and see the humorous side of life. You connected them spiritually, my little fairy. Sarah, you helpedo many people who otherwise would have been throw-aways. You are a unique spirit and soul. I am so proud to be your mother. And, most of all, you should be extremely proud of yourself. I see you glowing in Heaven with God, the angels, and all the relatives that you so loved. Grammy must be thrilled to have you next to her. I know that I cannot selfishly hold you earthbound. The huge picture of us in the parlor keeps falling down. Is it your way of saying I must let you go? I can do that, if it does not mean enjoying the sights of you, your precious items, the scent of your bed, your written poems. I need a way to still feel your presence here - it comforts me. How I miss all of your being. How I love you with all my heart. Mommy

Remembering your joy creates pleasant mind-thoughts that keep me from not only utter despair, but keep you close to me. I need to feel, smell, and "see" (loosely defined) you. Your smile and laughter are always with me, along with the 'craziness' that you and Rachel created as small children. Not many would understand, but we embraced it!

Sweet one, Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day. To me, there are no celebrations left without you, Sarah. We shared the same spirit regarding holidays. With our housegold primarily being vegetarian, Tom Turkey was safe from us! But the poor salmon was stuffed and served along side two of your favorites: Grammy's home-made noodles and southern garlic mashed "poh-tat-ers" as you liked to call them. Of course pumpkin pie! Wish we could go to Italy and celebrate your life. I miss you so much my heart aches. All my love, Mommy

I'm missing you beyond words, my Sarah. As soon as I figure out how to do so, I'm going to add one of your ballet videos to share with your friends & mine. Matthew and Ashlee's wedding is approaching in July. We'll miss your presence, but you will be with us. Love you, baby, Mommy

My girl, To all who were the closest to you, we knew you were celestial . . . more than from this earthly world. There was/is a mystery regarding your soul. You were not only intuitive, but also had a way of looking at life in a way that most could not. We marveled your spirit. You were/are magical. "To work magic is to weave the unseen forces into form; to soar beyond sight; to explore the unchartered dream realm of the unhidden of the hidden reality." - Starhawk Said more cogently than me. I am so fortunate to have had you in my life, not only as a daughter, but as a gifted and spiritual person. I could have learned so, so much more from you and realize I still can. You have so much to offer. I love you immensely. Mommy

Sweet baby, I've had this same dream twice within 3 days. You came to me in a flowing, long white chiffon dress with both your dress and hair flowing in the air. How beautiful you were! You reached out your hand and said, "Come to me, mommy". My response was that I wanted to go to you more than ever and you reached out your hand and asked me to come with you again. This time I responded by saying I had to stay because Matthew and Julio need me. You smiled, seemingly accepting my response, and faded away. I felt so torn between two worlds, but know that I have no fear of dying as you will be waiting for me. I cannot wait to be with you again. Loving you always, Mommy

Sorry, Sarah, the last 2 days have been hectic, but know that you've been with me every minute of every day. Last night, I dreamt that I was at a casual New Years' Eve party, standing outside a ring of people holding hands and dancing in a circle. Suddenly, you appeared before me, dressed in a dress you loved, and handed me a fragile branch with orange/red flowers. You joined the circle and held out your hand for me to join you. I did so and had the time of my life dancing with you. You always lifted me into a world of peace. I love you. Mommy

My sweet one, Yesterday was a day of dr's visit, running around, & a reaction to a cortizone shot delivered to my left knee. That's why I didn't communicate yesterday. Mi disapiache. I dream about you all the time - keep coming to me. I dread the holidays, but know that you would not want me to feel this way. You & I always put the tree up with you doing most of the decorating & taking the tree down. This year I just don't know that I'll have the strength to handle the holidays without you. Wish the medical professionals could put me into a self-induced coma on November 23rd & awaken me on January 4th. Yes, I know by not facing this season this year, it only makes it harder for the next year. Hold my hand, baby, and guide me through this and be by my side. Saying 'I love you' seems trivial, but my Sarah you know I do with all my heart. Love, Moneen

Not certain how I will survive. Please be by my side - I need to feel your presence. How will I live the rest of my life without you? This is when everyone who is no experiencing nor has experienced the death of their child gets so spiritual and esoteric. "She is always with you . . ." No, it is not the same, as I will never have the pleasure of seeing you, talking with you, having you physically by my side, being at your wedding, or holding your children. I try to be more tolerant of those who truly do not have a clue of what they are speaking. I know what it is like to lose my darling girl & resent otherts telling me how I should feel. Please, please be by my side through this first holiday season without you, my girl. I love you forever, Mommy

But what I do know is that you had an intense influence upon many people in all walks of life and in many positive ways. You taught me a lot while here on earth and even after your death, I'm still learning. My beautiful girl, I miss you. Watch over me, si? With everlasting love, Mommy

My Sarah, In one of my daily devotional books, I came across this quote from Helen Keller which touched me: "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." - H. Keller This is how you lived your life, Sarah. At times you were afraid, unsure, and worried. You were nearly always able to rise above these emotions. You were/are strong - one of the strongest women I know. I try to draw from your strength in order to keep my face toward change. You lived as a free spirit. I hope to some day regain this spirit. I miss you terribly, girl. Come to me. Love you, Mommy

Oh, Sarah, It's time for the annual Nutcracker ballet performances. Part of me would like to go, yet intuitively I know I can't. Too many sweet and precious memories there. However, I bet your spirit will be on stage dancing all your favorite parts. By far, you've been recognized as one of the best "Clara"s ever danced. At such a young age, you walked out on the stage and owned it. So confident, so agile, such emotion, so artistic. The audience marveled at your performance! How beautiful you were! People sensed and witnessed your great spirit as you dance, knowing your performance went far beyond technical talent. I'm still so proud of you, not just for your dance, musical, poetry talents, but how happy you made people feel when they were going through tough times. You were often my fortress and I was so thankful you were with me. Your presence still guides me. Thank you my precious Sarah. Please be with me on Christmas. With everlasting love for you, Mommy

I can see you in your woolen hat tied below your chin, your Timberlake coat with the furry hood, gloves from which you could expose your fingers, and the boots, with the white shoestrings from tennis shoes. And under all the gear was that remarkable smile and laugh! I remember when 'you Middletown elementary girls' built the family of snowmen that was starred in the Winchester Star. Unfortunately, you were not in the photograph as you were on your way home at our agreed upon time (such a good girl) . . . but your name was mentioned! You always took care of shoveling snow for me.

We sat in your room sharing memories, laughing, and looking at those items which were significant to you. Each person took home a t-shirt or article of clothing that they remembered that you loved. Later, we all went outside, lit candles, toasted you, sang your favorites, read poetry, and spoke from our hearts about our undying love for you, how we miss you, but know you are with us and smiling upon us. Joy surrounded us . . . we knew you were there. Your dance amongst the stars lit our hearts and minds. I hope you enjoyed this special remembrance of you.

Sarah- It was so wonderful to celebrate your life last week. I must admit I've been quite sad since we did this. I hate that you cannot participate and be with all those that love you. I hate that I cannot ever call you again or enjoy some girls time with you. You changed my life. I was not popular and didn't have many friends. You took the time to befriend me, encoaurged me, and helped mold me into who I am today. I know you are proud of me. Although it is months later I feel extremely angry that you will never get in my vehicle again and change the CD 100 times. You were my best friend and you can never replace the friends of your youth- i'll never have anyone like you again. Everyone knows that friendships change with age but I can't say that they improve because life just gets busy and you do things out of necessity, not always love. I'm glad to spend time with your other friends because I realize that you were someone we all wanted for ourselves. Most of us were jealous when you had a serious boyfriend or a new friend. You were the kind of person that you just wanted to yourself. Maybe that is a curse of a blessing but we all loved you and it speaks to the kind of friend and love you offered. I know you were with us too! See you soul sister. love you.

Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Picasso, Anais Nin, etc. Your genius would have been/is so appreciated by them and now they are in your presence. Hope you are enjoying contemplation, ideas, thoughts in their circle. I know you are making them laugh, especially Hemingway as he so needed to laugh. Let them know their great works are on my shelves along with yours. How I adore you. During the rough times of your illness, it may have not seemed so, but even then we always relayed how much we loved each other. You always thanked me for being the one person always there for you.

My Girl, Last night you came to me in my dream. You just walked through the door with that catchy smile on your face and gave me the biggest hug - the happiest I've ever been. When I awoke, I knew it was a dream, but still felt your presence. How I love you. Be happy, my Saraheee. Loving you always, Mommy

Sweet Sarah, I would try to explain why I've been so silent, but you already know. Every time I pull up your tribute wall, I gasp when I see your beautiful face. Still I cannot believe you are gone. I don't believe that I ever will. I want you to be with me . . . I want to be with you, my baby girl. How will I ever survive without you? I can only hope and pray you are at peace. I love you, Mommy

Hey Girl, Wish you were here to make your favorite birthday meal, shrimp confetti quesedilla. Yours was the best! I must say that ours was one family, whose members were all good cooks. How you would've loved the food in Italy, especially the pastries and gelato. Guess over my years of being there, I ate enough for both of us! So much we still had left to do together. Of course, you'll be with me where ever I go,but it will never be the same. Missing all those small yet precious moments we shared and those to come. Love you always, Mommy

I see a woman who walks through this world with gentleness and grace. I admire you for all you are and for all that you do.

Thinking that you are now celestial gives me a bit of comfort. I'm trying to keep up with your friends, those that you were c.ose to . . . I guess they bring you closer to me. Tonight the stars are gorgeous. As i looked at them, I felt you. How I love you. Sometimes I would prefer to be with you, but I know that is not what you would want. Watch over me, sweet girl.

Happy Valentines Day sweet, beautiful friend. The last time I saw you it was Valentines Day weekend. We made some good memories and played in the snow back when winter was cold! I can't begin to describe the void in my life without you. I'll do my best to fill it with love and positive energy. I had your beautiful Italy dress dry cleaned this week...your makeup from the last time you wore it was still present. I'm all booked for Sorrento and Roma and I'm going to wear your dress and honor your spirit, Sarah becuase that it all anyone who truly loved you can do. I'm also looking to creating a scholarship/tribute in your honor with Bethany Hall. I won't let your name be forgotten. Love you and miss you.

Baby Girl, My apologies for the decrease in my writing. I know that you are not grounded to these earthly tangibles. It is my own guilt . . . . that you may feel I have forgotten you. From high in the heavens, I know you think I am silly as I talk to you every moment of every day. Tonight I looked through the ballet photo album you created. My heart soared, yet settled into reality. I will never hold you again, never see you dance, never dance with you as we always did, never laugh with you, never see you cooking in the kitchen, nurturing your cats. I don't know how to go on without you, yet I know, thankfully, that you are in a better place than me. I love you forever, Mommy

My Sweet Sarah, Sorry, once again for my silence, but only on this tribute wall,as I think of and feel you every moment of each day. Have been in Richmond, VA most of last week at a conference. There are so many places that I wanted to share with you & Richmond is one. Currently, my focus has been, but especially now, keeping "the detective" to stay active on your case. Whatever it takes to shake their boots and keep them/him diligently investigating, I will do. Maybe I'll end up like the father who marched in front of the Winchester courthouse for years, proclaiming his son's innocence - day by day wearing that sandwich box sign. Your murderer will not escape charges. I'll spend my last dying breath ensuring this. And if you, XXXX, are reading this, know your time is limited - you may as well turn yourself in. Meanwhile, I want to believe that you are happy and at peace. Are you are there singing with Whitney? She needs your comfort and warmth. How I miss you, my girl. I love you forever & ever. Mommy

Baby girl, Please lead us to the person who killed you. You may have thought life was unobtainable for you, but I know that you didn't want to die. I know who did, as well as the police. Give him up Sarah. He is not God and had no right to ask as such when he left you to die. I believe, had you had the opportunity to live, you would have chosen life. You wanted life. Speak to us now of the person who stole your life, We all know who it is - just confirm our speculations. Being rich does not make murder of someone his parents' hated excusable. Remember, rich daddy threatened to slit you throat. They're all going down - if it takes my last dying breath. Justice will be served, I promise you that, my Sarah. I can't live until he/they are persecuted. I need you. I need your help. I love you more than words can convey. Mostly, I want you to be at peace. All my love, Mommy

Oh Sarah, The flood-gate of tears let loose last night. I bottle my grief as people grow tired of my grief or just simply don't know what to say anymore.

Eventually, my body, mind, spirit just have to release. It keeps me sane. I don't know that I will ever accept not seeing you again until I die. I ache for you every day. Every day.

I found a passage that reminds me of our friendship and I wanted to share it with you. "They are love, those rare, blinding early friendships. Not everyone has them, and almost no one gets more than one. The other, the later ones, are not the same. These first grow in a soil found only in the country of the young, and are possible only there because their medium is unbroken time and proximity and discovery, and later there is not enough of these for the total, ongoing immersions that these friendships are. It charmed us, soothed us, fed us, consumed us. We discovered in each other and ourselves worlds, galaxies, a universe." I miss all our magic. I love you forever. Kristin

Sweet Sarah, How you loved Emily Dickenson, so here's a poem for you: New feet within my garden go, New fingers stir the sod; A troubadour upon the elm Betrays the solitude. New children play upon the green, New weary sleep below; And still the pensive spring returns, And still the punctual snow!" I love you my girl, Mommy

My Sarah, Every day & night I pray that God will give you back to me. Knowing that this will not happen, then I cry and pray that you are serene, at peace, happy, dancing, and watching over me. I will never, ever accept that you are no longer with me. Love you forever, Moneen

Your 30th Birthday is all most upon us. How I wish that you were here so that we could be planning a party. I feel very sad that your life ended before we could celebrate 3 decades on this planet together. My solace is that I know you do not suffer the same pain that those of us on earth experience. I know that you are not lonely, sad, and that you never cry. I know that you are not in pain and that you are beautiful and full of joy. You made so many birthdays very speical for me and I wish that I could make this one special for you. There is a full moon on your birthday this year. You and Jerry are up in heaven dancing, that I know for sure. Love you sweet friend.

Happy 30th Birthday Beautiful Woman. I love you so much. Last night the moon was almost full and there was a thrilling thunderstorm. This morning I watched the sunrise and the sky was so beautiful. Tonight a full moon in honor of you and your 30th. Your Leo spirit is all around. I will look at the moon tonight and I will toast to you in your favorite wine glass. I love you dearly Sarah. I so wish you were here. Those of us who truly loved you, knew you, and were only positive influences in your life will never be the same without your presence. So dance with Jerry to sugar magnolia today sweet, beautiful friend.

My precious girl, HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY!!! Where did all these years go? I remember the day you were born, your first cry, as well as your first smile. From the first day of your life, you were always a gentle soul and a joy to experience. How I miss you. Hope you and grammy & pappy are celebrating - dancing on clouds. Tonight I will send to you balloons with a card. I will light candles and read Elizabeth Barrett Browning poems to you. I will hold you in my arms. And I hope you will be smiling. With all my heart and soul, I love you. Mommy
Kristin Pugh left a message on August 1, 2012:
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed. When you part from your friend, you grieve not. For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain. And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. And let your best be for your friend. If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also. For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live. For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness. And the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. Kahlil Gibran

The Touch of the Master's Hand 'Twas battered and scarred, And the auctioneer thought it hardly worth his while To waste his time on the old violin, but he held it up with a smile. "What am I bid, good people", he cried, "Who starts the bidding for me?" "One dollar, one dollar, Do I hear two?" "Two dollars, who makes it three?" "Three dollars once, three dollars twice, going for three," But, No, From the room far back a gray bearded man Came forward and picked up the bow, Then wiping the dust from the old violin And tightening up the strings, He played a melody, pure and sweet As sweet as the angel sings. The music ceased and the auctioneer With a voice that was quiet and low, Said "What now am I bid for this old violin?" As he held it aloft with its' bow. "One thousand, one thousand, Do I hear two?" "Two thousand, Who makes it three?" "Three thousand once, three thousand twice, Going and gone", said he. The audience cheered, But some of them cried, "We just don't understand." "What changed its' worth?" Swift came the reply. "The Touch of the Masters Hand." And many a man with life out of tune All battered with bourbon and gin Is auctioned cheap to a thoughtless crowd Much like that old violin A mess of pottage, a glass of wine, A game and he travels on. He is going once, he is going twice, He is going and almost gone. But the Master comes, And the foolish crowd never can quite understand, The worth of a soul and the change that is wrought By the Touch of the Masters' Hand. Myra Brooks Welch

We made some good New Years memories especially in 2000. Hard to believe that was 13 years ago and how different out lives turned out. I'll listen to "Wading in the Velvet Sea" since that was always our New Years song. "You won't find moments in a box and someone else will set your clocks. I took a moment from my day; wrapped it up in things you say and mailed it off to you." Love you sweet friend. Happy New Year.

Sweet Sarah, I'm smelling pearberry so you must be nearby. How I love your visits! I know, they probably tie you too much to this earth, but I long to have you near. I'll never accept that you will not be physically present, as I long to hold you, feel your touch, and soft kiss for "mommyyyyy". Hope you are as happy as happy could ever be. I love you with all my heart. Mommy

Hello darling friend. I'm sorry it has been awhile since the last post. We had some trouble writing to you for many months when Omps changed their server. It is up and running and now I can write the messages I know you look forward too. I had a wonderful session with Justin. Thanks for coming through so strong. I love you. I think of you daily. I'm planning a get together with your mother and I'm so excited for us to celebrate you. Love you.
Mommy left a message on July 11, 2013:
My darling Sarah, It's been sooooo long since I've had access to your tribute wall and able to give you my love. Daily you are in my every thought. How I wish your life had been different . . . that I had been able to make a difference, so that you would still be with me. I could see you fulfilling your passions, living a full life, a bride, a mother. I know through Kristin's work that you are truly happy now. That I embrace. Oh, that contagious laugh, sense of humor - we would laugh until we cried! I miss this. Dance in/on the clouds, stars, and moon as you have never danced before. When I see a firefly I know it is you saying, "I love you, mommy". I will be speaking to you soon (7/24) and I eagerly await being with you, my girl. I miss you terribly so please come to me when you feel able. I love you forever, Sarah. Mommy

Morning my girl, Just thinking about you a lot last night and this morning. It's a beautiful day - the kind that would light up your face and have you swimming at the falls. The trees sway with the gentle breeze. Louisa is taking good care of Jersey, MoMo, and Sammy. I'm so glad they were able to stay in their home. Louisa and her husband, Gary, love cats. At one point they had 15 cats! I know that puts a smile on your face. Smile down on me, Sarah. I love and miss you so. Kisses. Mommy

Hello dear best friend. I'm here with your Mother visiting and remembering all the wonderful aspects of you. A fire is burning, there is a birthday cupcake for you, and music is playing. I will love you dearly until the end of time. I know you are here sweet friend and I'm so so so grateful for you. Thanks for helping me feel free always. Love you girl. My Sweet Girl, Sarah, What a lovely weekend it is having Kristin with me, soooo special, to celebrate your life. We have spent two days remembering all the fun times with you and acknowledging all the unique qualities as the superwoman you possessed. There will never be another "Sarah C." And, baby girl, . . . . we are creating the craaaaziness in your honor. I love you with all my heart and soul. You are the air that I breathe. You lift me when I feel I can no longer take another step . . . another breath. Dance from cloud to cloud as you could do. I see you in the fireflies dancing in the fields tonight. I look at the full moon and you touch my soul. An early "Happy Birthday" my lovely, Sarah. I await you. Love, Mommy
Mommy left a message on July 23, 2013:
Sarah, my sage, Another beautiful but scorching hot day with intermittent rain. No doubt you have blue skies everyday, or perhaps not as we are unfortunate not to know what your plain(s) might be. I'm sure it's beautiful. Again, Kristin and I were so happy to be with you Saturday night in an early birthday celebration. We saw you change the moon as we spoke of it. As we were preparing the cupcake lighting, a firefly left its firefly friends and hovered in a tree close-by. The candle was lit and the firefly moved closer and closer to us as we spoke to you. Sitting in the soft grass along with the cupcake, Kristin and I spoke of your genius and ability to make anyone feel better about themselves. A pause in the conversation . . . the firefly hovered over the candle and the fire no longer adorned your cupcake! Of course, we knew from the moment you, Miss Firefly, were spotted that you were with us. Such heartfelt, happy moments! Tomorrow is my appointment with the medium, Justin Terry. I hope that you will speak openly, honestly, spiritually, and fearlessly with me. That you will speak of your death. I long to talk with you and feel your embrace. Much love and many kisses until tomorrow, my girl. Love, Mommy

"I lit a fire with the love you left behind, And it burned wild and crept up the mountainside. I followed your ashes into outer space. I can't look out the window, I can't look at this place, I can't look at the stars, They make me wonder where you are. Stars, Up on heaven's boulevard And if I know you at all, I know you've gone too far So I, I can't look at the stars All those times we looked up at the sky, Looking out so far, We felt like we could fly. And now I'm all alone in the dark of night, The moon is shining, But I can't see the light, And I can't look at the Stars, They make me wonder where you are." Grace Potter Wow, 31 girl. You are getting OLD. I can't beleive it. Happy Birthday my dear sweet beautiful friend. I know you would be looking better than me- you were always the hot woman! How I long to celebrate this day with you. To pick you up in my old white jeep and hit the town with you like the old days. We had lots of great birthdays together. I'm wearing you today around my neck! Eveyone has commented and asked what was in my necklace, and my reply, well Sarah! I really could go on and on but I'm not going too. I love you, I miss you so much. I will never get over the loss of you. However, I do see one shining light and that is that nothing in this world will ever break my heart as much as losing you did. Forever your best friend, Kristin

Sweet Sarah, Today I gave birth to you 31 years ago. An easy birth to a beautiful baby girl we named Sarah Rachel. From the moment you were born, you were a joy. Smiles, laughter, giggles, snuggles. How you would wiggle up on my shoulder to put your head against my neck and purr as your cats often did. I knew you were special . . . different from all others in a spiritual and intellectual way. And that you were/are. You laughed, loved, and danced your way into the hearts of all who knew you and even those who did not, wished they knew you. How proud I was and am to have you as my daughter. Yes, there were rough times, but that is true for everyone. How I wanted to see you grow into the beautiful, talented woman you were/are, walk on your father's arm down the aisle in your white fairy dress, love the man in your life and he love you, have children, and be with me. You . . . we were robbed of all these dreams. I try not to be bitter . . . to understand that you have moved on to another dimension where your are truly happy. That warms my heart. But I miss you so. Tonight as I lit the candle in your birthday cake, sang, saluted, thanked you, and launched your balloon, tears gently flowed from my eyes as I felt so connected to you. Once again, your "ballet" balloon floated through the clouds into the stratosphere. I know you are holding it in your hands now. Sarah, I will love you with all my heart and soul until the end of time. What keeps me afloat is knowing that I will join you soon. Feeling you in my arms with those soft lips on mine, and your gravely voice saying, "Mummy" will be the happiest moment of my life. Soon there will be justice for the person who took you away from us. Like the firefly, as I often envision you, the best things in life are free. So shine on, my girl, shine on. All my love, Mommy

Sweet girl, Today I went to the Smithsonian history museum, remembering your huge eyes as you looked at the dinosaurs for the first time. You and I were always eager for adventure! In the butterfly exhibit, the most beautiful butterflies flew around us. I spotted you immediately - the delicate black and white paper kite butterfly. The white on its wings was so thin it took on every color of flower it passed or landed on. Everywhere I go, everything I see reminds me of you, your smiling face, and the infamous "goat lips". There will never be another Sarah C. Wish we had had more time together while you were on this earth. Know I love you forever. Mommy

My Precious Sarah, The splendor of summer has faded to the soft, warm breezes of the fall. Time passes from season to season, yet my heart and spirit are immobilized. Until we are together once more, I will feel this emptiness and longing. Yes, you are always in my heart and I remember every nuance, every laugh, smile, tear shed, and happy moments. Those can never be taken away from me. But, I feel lost, as if I will never find home again. You were/are my light. The other night while reading in bed I saw a flicker out of the corner of my right eye. Perhaps a firefly in the room? No. I read and another flicker. When the third flashed, I knew you had come to visit me. A treasured moment. Always feel my love for you and know you will always be in my heart. How I love you! How I miss you! Love forever, Mommy

Sarah- You would be so proud of me finally following my true dreams. I'm very happy to have made some major transitions. I'm sure that you are right beside me on this new adventure. I miss you so much and in the lonely moments more than I'd ever imagine. Good friends can never be replaced. I have so many found memories of us in the Fall. Lots of drives to skyline and it is a shame it is shutdown now. Maybe you can go and enjoy with total peace. I love you. I miss you. Come visit.

Sweet Sarah, The frost is on the pumpkin and you so loved Halloween. The best witch and witches' laugh I ever heard! "Because I eat too much caaaaandy!" I bought 2 pumpkins, one for the fall outdoor decorative scene and one for you and me to carve. How I miss and ache for you. Josh called and we have been playing phone tag. He heard a song that reminded him of you. He misses you incredibly, too. Why did this have to happen? You need to guide me, as I feel as if I'll never feel happiness ever again. My love for you, Sarah is as strong as the day you were born. It is forever. Hope you are laughing and having a good time flitting around the universe. Thanks for the call the other night. You never fail me. I love you madly, Mommy

Kristin left a message on November 20, 2013:
Sarah- An old wound has been opened again. I thought I would feel so great and for a moment I did but then the realization that it doesn't bring you back or really even do you justice. I mean it is justice in one way but nothing will ever compensate for the loss of you. I'm not a Lady Gaga fan but you and her really were right on par. She wrote a song called Dope about her struggles with drugs and alcohol and how she is overcoming them. She says over and over that "I love you more than dope." You loved all of us more than the drugs that took you away. I know that and so does everyone else so rest easy my best friend. So many people love you and think of you every single day. Keep me strong girl. I'm wearing you around my neck this week. I need your goodness.

My Girl, Time has passed so quickly, but it does not dull the ache in my heart. Your are always in my heart and soul. Your upcoming trial has sent me in a tailspin, ripping open my jagged wounds. I sit in the courtroom looking at him and wonder 'what made him think he had the right to end your life and take you away from us?' I'm certain there will be justice for which I will be grateful, but so angry that you are not here. I know, you are in a much better place & happier than you ever were on this earth. For comfort I feed the birds during this winters weather. I know you would want that. From my kitchen window I see hundreds of birds feasting and feel peace. I wonder which one is you perching on my window sill? Then one stops to look directly at me. I see you in nature everywhere. Thank you for visiting me as Jersey, Sammy, and Momo, jumping up on my bed in the middle of the night and snuggling next to me. How I miss you! See me through this trial, Sarah. Then we'll go to Belize & retire. I love you more than life itself. Mommy

Sweet Sarah, Spring has arrived & has always been an energizing & creative time for you. Living in the woods, I see you in the gentle blowing of the leaves, each wildflower, the songs of the birds, the sun, & so much more. You are in my heart & also experience these pleasures with me, but how I wish you were physically with me. I want to hold you in my arms, feel your hair next to my face, & your sun warmed skin. I love you more each day. Forever yours, Mommy

My sweet, precious Sarah, Spring has passed and summer is gone. Much has happened since my last entry. Though I have not written regularly, know that you are in my every thought every day. Much of the spring/ summer was occupied ensuring Brian was brought to justice. We couldn't risk a jury trial and Brian walking away a free man. The evidence was contaminated, so we accepted a plea bargain. So hard to do. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Fortunately, Judge Athey read between the lines and sentenced him to 5 years in prison, 10 years of supervised probation to be followed by 10 years if unsupervised probation. For the next 25 years he'll be caught up in the legal system. There is no closure. Only the feeling of 'what now'. Had the sentence been 35, 50, or 100 years, it dies not bring you, sweet one, back to us. By now, I guess, I should have accepted your absence. Never. Never will I accept that you will no longer walk through the door, with your beaming smile and saying, "What's up, woman?". I will yearn for you until my last dying breath, Sarah. Yes, it's selfish of me to want to bring you back to this world of strife and turmoil, when I know that you are a free spirit, truly. That the chains of this earth no longer bind you. You dance not only among the angels but in the breeze rustling the burnt orange and yellow leaves of these autumn trees. Yes, you are with me and for that I am so thankful. I relish in the wonderful memories, the sound of your laughter, the feel of your presence. Thank you for arranging this gorgeous day for my birthday. I'll need your help, however, blowing out all 64 candles. So, I raise a glass of cheer in your honor my girl, just like the old days. Here's to when next we are together. I love you with all my heart and soul. Forever yours, Mommy

Precious Sarah - The holiday season is approaching. I will try, again, to celebrate this year but it's difficult without you here. Just not the same without your enthusiasm. Maybe some day I will have grandchildren. That should spark the holiday spirit. You are & will always be my bsby. I miss you incredibly, girl. On display by the fireplace is the picture of you outside in the winter all bundled up with that magnificent smile on your lovely face. I hope you are smiling now. I smile just thinking of you. Visit soon. I love you, Sarah.
