      So sorry for your loss, Pat, Kris and family. Also sorry I never met her – fellow Pedhead and sociology major; feels like a kindred spirit. And how lucky to have her for a mother! Hope you can soon cherish many fond memories.

    To Patrick and family – I will always remember Sarah as full of spunk, with a twinkle in her eyes. She always made me laugh! I’m grateful to have known Sarah.

    I was very sad to hear about Sarah. It is very hard to lose a sibling and a parent. Thinking of all of you.

    Sending sympathy to the family. Sarah became a close friend to my mother when she lived at the assisted living in Bangor. If we visited mom, Sarah was usually included. Lots of fun memories.
