(((Janet))) my heart aches for Sarah's family....although this time would come one day, we are never prepared. Sarah blessed so many of us with her kindness, sense of humor and common sense. I will miss her emails, text and occasional phone visits - she is a special lady and will be dearly missed.

My heart aches for you too, dear Janet, for I know Sarah was one of your closest friends. Gentle hugs, my sweet friend.

Jen, she was all that and more...it's been a difficult day since learning the news... In my mind she's relaxing peacefully at the GF.

You have posted exactly what I would have - thank you. I am very emotional so I need to stop for now. She was supposed to arrive at WL/CL in just a few days.

She was a dear friend to me and I l will miss her greatly.

Her family is in the process of arranging a memorial service and her daughter Stephanie will pass along the details which I will share with you all. I set up a thread on the community board so we (and her all her DIS friends), can share our thoughts and memories of Sarah.

She's with God now and free of her pain. Please keep her family in your hearts and prayers.

Thank you for posting this, Janet. I would have never known, been in and out of MDAnderson for the last 4 months. And have missed all of you ladies.

Got on today to see what was going on and saw this!
Sarah has been on my mind lately too. I am so sad about all of this for everyone.

Oh, I am so very sad to hear this news about our dear Sarah. She was such a lovely person. I do believe that she is now not in pain anymore. I feel so badly for her family. I really don't know what to say...

Laid on the couch watching the closing phases of MK, decided to switch dinner to something more laid back. Scored the Captain's Grille Christmas Dinner Buffet--which was beyond amazing (new Christmas tradition for us!). We walked over to DHS, shopped around, watched the lights. Took the bus to the Contemporary and walked over to MK for Holiday Wishes. Went to the Frontierland Pin Store, walked around, WALKED RIGHT ON TO DUMBO AND THE BARNSTORMER!!! No wait! Then I threw in the towel and told him I was too sick and had to go home. I tried to brave it since it was Xmas, but I couldn't

Since then--traffic has been a mess around town. I went to work the morning of the 26th, left early because I was sick, and it took me over 90 minutes to get home (14 miles). I haven't been back to work since and am out until Monday--I have massive infection attacking me! I am a little stir crazy and managed to get a Via Napoli tonight. Pizza and gelato should cure just about anything. Right?

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday!! Love to all!!
I hope your feeling better.

You would think.

Letthewookie, Jenny, We love musicals, too. I can't wait to see the Les Mis movie. We have tickets for when the traveling company comes here soon.
We haven't seen Wicked yet, but have tickets for that later in the year. Often our Christmas gifts to each other are show tickets.
I haven't seen Wicked yet, but I really want to.

Thank you for letting us know. I'm sure typing that out was very emotionally hard to do.
I'll keep her family in our prayers. I'm sure she's in Heaven now getting some really good inside Disney information from Walt himself.
I think we'll all have a milk shake in her honor tonight.

My husband had been driving me crazy, saying that he knew I didn't like my earrings and he wanted to take them back. I finally caved and said that "no typically I didn't like clusters of smaller diamonds like these earrings are, but I really like these. Especially b/c he took the time to save hidden money from me (which would be about as easy as keeping all of us out of Disney for the rest of our lives), he got to Jared's (with out me knowing, while I was in the Apple store and Brook's Brothers), and picked them out". Then he was like, "you telling me that is like a mom that thinks the gift their child gave them was the most beautiful thing ever when it was just chewed gum in a dirty gum wrapper." He even made me go to the Jared website to pick out some different earrings so I could go exchange them. After looking through the website, the ones he picked were the exact ones I would have picked. Ok, well short of the $4,200 Leo Diamond 1ct studs, but I would have kicked his rear if he spent that kind of money on me for anything. Honestly, I'm not totally comfortable with the amount I know he spent on me.

Thinking of our Sarah wishing I could have met her in person, but am blessed to have shared a small part of her here with all of you through our common love of Disney. I won't forget her - her strength and courage, she was a inspiration to me and showed me the true meaning of perseverance and always with such a positive attitude. She will be dearly missed!

Lots of sadness today. I visited the thread on the community board, but had to stop by here to express my sympathies to Sarah's family, friends, and all the RC'ers. We have got to know her well, and I think a big group hug is in order.

I just wish we could all have that group hug. Sarah emailed me on the 23rd, to wish Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. How fast things must have changed for her.
I feel like yelling for the Dis to stop... at least for a moment. Someone special is missing now.
