It has been over two years since the tragic loss of Sarah Burke. With the conclusion of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, its leaves me with mixed emotions. Joy in seeing women complete in the events that Sarah fought so hard to have added to the games, and sadness that she wasn't there to compete in them. Sarah's memory will be honored every time women ski down the pipe at the X Games, stand on the podium at the Olympics, or when young girls all over the world have dreams of freeskiing in these events.
On January 19th 2012 her family lost a loving daughter, sister, and wife. The freeskiing community lost a champion, mentor, and competitor. And the country lost nothing short of a true Canadian hero. She did however leave a blueprint for all of us on how to live our lives. To have fun and live life to the fullest, to respect one another and support each other, and to never give up on your dreams.
That is how I will honour her memory, to try and live my life like she did.
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life in a manner so that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.
-Native American Proverb
may you rest in peace Sarah Burke. You were a wonderful person and a great inspiration to the many people in your sports. hope you are showing your tricks to the angels in heaven. May God bless your family and give them strength to go through this sad time.

It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.
I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THIS. WINTER GAMES I WOULD WATCH HER SKI, I LOVE SKIING BUT I AM INTERMEDIATE. HER SKIING WAS VERY INTENSE AND CHALLENGING. I WOULD LOVE TO SKI LIKE THAT BUT I CAN'T. I ADMIRE PEOPLE WHO CAN DO THAT.
ONE DAY I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING HER AND TEACHING ME HOW TO SKI IN PARADISE. THE SCRIPTURES ARE VERY COMFORTING AND TRUE.
AGAIN WITH DEEP SYMPATHY.

To Sarah's Loved Ones,
As Sarah continues on her journey, may your memories of her put a smile on your heart and give your soul a warm hug. It seems that she packed a lot of love, joy and living her passion into her 29 short years here...something many people fail to do in a much longer time period. How blessed you are to have had her energy in your life! Remember the joy in her "dash"...the little mark separating her date of birth - from her date of departure....also known as "life". My sincere condolences for your loss of Sarah.

My deepest condolences. The loss of someone who grabbed life and lived it to its full is an especially deep loss.
You will be missed dearly Sarah by many a fan and by me too, even though i'm not a sports person. You and your husband had so much to look forward to in life. May you rest in eternal peace.
My heart goes out to Sarah's family and loved ones with the loss of an all round beautiful young lady. I lost my son in November 2010 in Santo Domingo D. R. and you may have seen the news broadcasts for two weeks pleading for help to raise funds to get him home, but unfortunately we lost an amazing young man. Since our loss I have wanted to start a brain injury fund raising foundation but I have continued to encounter so much loss it has prevented me from being able to follow through, but in the past few weeks with all the news on many NHL players I have been pushing forward on accomplishing this as my son was also a very skilled goaltender. With the passing of your loved one I am so much more determined to get this off the ground. I pray for all of Sarah's loved ones and family. I hold you dear to my heart, I am so sorry for your loss but hope and pray with the power of our Lord to get this happening by next January as in two days it would have been Michael 35th birthday and I would like to have something his daughter to honor forever.
The World is a better place for Sarah having been here, and now grieves for a life too soon taken. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. Sarah was an inspiration to us all. Her life truly made a difference.
I send heartfelt condolences to Sarah's family & friends. I am truly sorry for your loss.

A truly enormous loss to her family, friends, her sport and her country, Canada! All Canadians mourn her loss!!!
