To my lil sis...who always had a smile to share with all who knew her, you will be forever loved and missed. Today it seems impossible to go on without your laughter, but through out will make us all more appreciative of what you leave behind! Even as a younger sister, you have always been an inspiration....and if today, as I sit here lost and so very hurt of your passing, I know that you are forever with me...with all of us, who were lucky enough to have you in our lives..bless you Sarah, and know how very much you are loved!!

As I sit here and miss our girl so much I take comfort in knowing she is now healed completely. Every time I asked or heard anyone ask Sarah how she was doing her response every single time was....."I'm good, how are you?" No matter how much pain she was in or how exhausted she was she did not complain. We could all learn from this extraordinary young woman. I know I have learned so much from my baby sister. I love you always Sarah. I am already missing you so much, but have peace knowing you now have eternal life. <3

Anyone who knew Sara can say that she was truly unique. She was my baby sister and she always had my back. You could call her for help whenever it was needed. Once she almost ran over an ex boyfriend of mine to save me. And she would have if he didn't dive out of the way. Sara saved me more than once and l could never repay her. I truly loved her and cannot believe that we will all be without her.

When I think of Sara, so many thoughts go threw my mind. I remember her coming home from the hospital. I remember her 1st set of stitches from Myrtle Beach. Mostly I think of the way she was always there to help anyone. We donated blood and plasma together, just to help strangers. She would help you with anything weather to help find a lost pet or rescue you from the side of the road. She saved me many times and held my deepest secrets. She was truly a great sister and will be missed forever by all of us. I've always loved you... Julie

It had been years since I had seen Sarah. We kept in touch here and there over the years and she was always so cheery. She had such a beautiful smile and soul - they way she lived life was an inspiration to everyone she came into contact with. She will be truly missed. Rest Easy old friend.
