It´s very fitting that memorial donations would go to the humane society. That´s one thing I remember about Sarah was her love of animals.

I had the privilege of getting to serve as a Congressional Page with Sarah, and so appreciated the the laughter and joy she brought to the program and our many long hours working in the Cloakroom together. Sending love and thoughts to her family and all who we´re lucky to know her.

A remarkable young lady, knew her as a student in middle school. Her spirit was strong, bright and determined. Her passing is tragic.

Sarah brought so much joy to our lives. She was like a big sister to Johnny and Matthew. She took them skiing and trick-or-treating and on trail rides at the stable. Sarah and her sister were our first campaign parade volunteers! Sarah did countless parades with us. She was wicked smart and incredibly compassionate. She will be greatly missed.
