My heart is heavy with a deep sadness today, as is anyone who was lucky to be blessed by knowing Sarah.

I will miss Sarah's bright, upbeat, intelligent and quick-witted posts. I was so looking forward to meeting her for the first time in the OFC in a couple weeks. Our meeting was the reason I chose to stay at WL.

Janet, my thoughts are with you and all our RCer friends.

My heart is so sad tonight. I will miss Sarah greatly. She was a dear friend. I will miss her text messages and her posts. Life is just too short.

For some reason finding out about Sarah has made me realize there are things I don't want to keep putting off. My sister and I have always talked about taking my mom on a surprise birthday trip to NYC to catch a Broadway show. I sent my sister a text and we are going to start planning it. She won't know for a few months if she can do it or not because the federal case she's working on may actually go to trial. My mom's birthday is August 10th, so if I can convince the DH that would mean our WDW trip would for sure have to be moved to January 2014.

I spoke a little to Janet this evening...one of the things I picture is Sarah in the RPC for NYE, but her being at OFC meant so much to her. She wanted to try it so badly, I think our Dear Angel will be stopping by WL when her fab lady friends make the trip down next month....I miss her already

Ever since receiving the phone call about Sarah I've been trying to figure out what to say and I'm still not sure. It's hard to believe that in a little over a week we were planning to be resting and relaxing at WL waiting for the rest of the RC ladies to arrive. She will be there in our thoughts and hearts ... a toast to her at her beloved GF Cafe ... a milkshake in her honor. And I know that when the other RC ladies leave and my DD arrives I will hug her a little tighter all the while thinking about the last trip with her daughters she had planned but was never able to go on. Sweet gentle brave Sarah you have touched all our lives.

I feel like yelling for the Dis to stop... at least for a moment. Someone special is missing now.

Just wanted to stop by and drop off one of these...

In my last email from Sarah, she told me how special a young lady Miss M is, it really, truly meant so much to me. Reading those words she wrote ... a sentiment never expressed from Miss M's own paternal grandmother -- it just shows what a caring, kind and special woman Sarah was.

Jen: I feel the exact same as you.

Stopping in to give everyone another HUG! I never got to meet Sarah but somehow felt an instant connection to her on this board. I am still so saddened by her passing. I hope my feisty Sarah grows up to as loved as admired as our beloved Sarah. I remember when DH and I were picking names for DD and he was against Sarah because he said it was an old name, but there was something about it I always loved and felt drawn to. Maybe it was fate, maybe just coincidence. But none the less, Sarah will be missed by many.

HUGS AND LOVE MY FRIENDS!!!

Does anyone have any plans for NYE???? Except for i_heart_the_mouse (we know what she is doing)

We are going to spend the night at my BFF's house with the kids. Our friends have 3 kids and theirs and ours get along great so it should be a fun night. We plan on fondue, Yahtzee, and drinks...good times.

I was feeling a little guilty today about our WL CL ressie, since our YC ressie was soooooo close to being paid off and now I am still working on it. I talked about it with DH though and WL CL is where he wants to be, so he voted to stay. It's not breaking the bank, but it would be nice to have Disney taken out of my monthly budget for awhile.

If we were staying AKL pool view, we'd owe $147 and be done....

Do you guys ever get enticed by the PIF effect??? *sigh*

Sarah - Memorial Tribute

Hi everyone,

Last night I was feeling so down, so I called a very good friend and asked her to have lunch and go shopping today, as I needed to get out of the house and wanted to be with a good friend. It was the right thing to do, and as Wookie suggested, we had a milkshake for Sarah.

Sarah's husband Jon, sent me an email expressing his gratitude to all over the comments he read on both our RC thread and the community board.

The memorial service is most likely the week of 1/7, and for those wishing to make a donation in her memory in lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting The Valerie Fund.

When you read about this charity, one can believe Sarah selected this one herself.

Candace, our good friends will be coming over to play cards and have lots of munchies, we always have a great time with them. Sam and their daughter Nicole are like sisters.

I'll try and make a donation before the memorial to that charity and another one I thought about making on in her name. It's a local charity called Kidd's Kids where they take terminally and chronically ill children and their entire families to WDW.
