8/28/2017 Forever!

I wanted to let everyone who has followed Sarah’s Journey to know that phase one is over.  She is now resting up for phase two.  If you think you had a hard time keeping up with her during phase one – hold on to your hats for the next phase because this time nothing will stop her!  Her rest started early this morning – no more diabetes, no more endless finger sticks and insulin pumps and boluses – no more chemo, no more throwing up, no more pain – forever!

I will post funeral arrangements as they develop.

    With tears flowing down my face, I need to say that I will see her in the Kingdom! I am so grateful that we have the knowledge of God's plan for us and that Sarah is no longer suffering. I didn't didn't know her too well, but the time we spent together was always such a fun time and she was always so genuine. Prayers for all of you, that God will lift you up and comfort you and show you how to move forward with life. Love you all, Loreita Holladay

    Greetings everyone: Sorry to learn about the sad outcome of a huge struggle. Unfortunately we all loose the battle for temporary life at one point in our lives. How wonderful it is that temporary death is only ONCE, and after that no more. Only the positive things for all eternity - thanks be to God. Chester Crowell

    Today, I am in tears. Though I know how great the rejoicing will be, today I mourn the loss of a very brave, great friend. Her race is won and she set such a magnificent example for all to see. I'm so happy that her pain and suffering of this physical age is behind her. But her joyful, energetic spirit will be forever missed...until we meet again. Hugs and love to Scott and girls. We love you so very much.
