Hello everyone,

This is Ben (Sarah's husband) and this is the very hardest sentence I've ever written.

Sarah passed away at home this afternoon, surrounded by her family, and mercifully without any pain or distress.

After being discharged from hospital Sarah spent the past week at home, and although fatigued has been her usual vibrant, hilarious and kind self throughout. She has of course been Sarah to the end (she's especially enjoyed lemonade ice lollies in bed)

Thank you all for your care and love for Sarah, her overwhelming kindness and empathy for others was rewarded by an extraordinary collection of friends. 

I will update here once arrangements have been made.

Much Love,

Ben and Family

    Dear Ben, What a brave lady Sarah was. Words cannot describe how sad we are and we cannot possibly comprehend what you must be going through. You were an amazing husband to Sarah and she knew it. So glad she wasn't in pain and had her loved ones with her til her passing. Keep strong Ben...you are loved by so many people who surround you with support. Much love. Hazel & Frank xxxxx

    Hi Ben I feel so lucky, even though I only got to be in the tiniest part of Sarahs wonderful life I knew what an amazingly lovely, funny, kind and brilliant person she was. A truly inspiring woman. I'm thinking of you all. Rosie

    Dear Ben, I was one of Sarah's tutors here at the University of Leicester back in the early-mid 1990s. Sarah was among the first group of students that I taught and I remember her with great fondness. Together with her pals Alice and Lucy, Sarah was a witty and lively student who brought colour into my teaching. My thoughts go out to you and your family. Phil Shaw.
