Absolute 'It Girl'. Burned oh so bright, so sad to learn of her passing.

Here's looking at you kid
Hard to forget
Here's looking at you kid
At least not yet
Your memory stays
It lingers ever
Will fade away never

My sweet angel Sabel. I have loved her for 36 years. She brought life to a girl who had none at the time. She will always be in my heart. My love to her family and all her friends. My heart may be cold right now but there still is a warm spot there where Sabel resides and will always - forever and a day. She is the sweetest angel of all. My love to you all. God Bless. xoxoox

I have loved Sabel for 36 years since I was 12 years old. I dont think I would ever have survived my teen years without her. She saved my life. She will always be in my heart - ALWAYS. I was lucky to have be in contact with her. My heart soared. It still does when I look back at my note and pictures. But my heart is broken. She was one of a kind and there will never be another Sabel Starr. My love to her family. My prayers are with you. Yeah a piece of my heart is gone but that warm feeling that is still there.....that's Sabel. I know that for sure!!!!!!!!!

For me as I see her she had alot of respect for herself as a person thats what I like about her she was very private with her life which is wonderful .
Much love and prayers go to her family at this time.
For her children
Your mother will be very missed
With love from a far away fan ,

Sabel has thousands of loyal fans that love her very much. She was an icon and trendsetter to those who have followed her from the early 70's, and also to many younger girls (and guys) who know her from Myspace fan sites, and from 1973 Star magazine. Her legacy will live on. It would be wonderful if her kids write a book about her!

I've known Sabel for many years, we worked together at the Lake before she left headed down to the valley to join CVI. Even though through-out the years we didn't see each other often; when I would see her she always had that big bright smile. Sabel had the gift of sharing her sense of humor and smile with so many. I know she will be greatly missed.
Bill, my heart goes out to you at this time for I know how close the two of you were. I am so sorry for your loss.

We enjoyed Sabels' sense of humor and stories during our visits to CVI. She contributed to the family atmosphere of the CVI dealers. May the family find comfort in the many memories of her life.'God bless

Dear Bill,
I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember playing golf with you and Sable. She is the one who inspired the term "Sable Par." To this day, Gary writes that on the scorecard for me! We will miss her. She's probably teeing it up as I am writing this.

Love , Terry
