My condolences to the Cook family. I remember Sarah when we were little girls and she was awesome even then. Every now and then when Ferris and I were playing Sarah would appear and seem so regal. She had amazing presence. Love to all the family from Emily...

It's been 15 years since I last saw Sarah's brilliant smile, but it is the kind of bright light that is never forgotten. Love to all the family, especially Ferris.
