I am so heartbroken to be making this page because of what it means. As we all know, Sarah lost her vivacious and wonderful mother quickly and suddenly.
There are no words that can begin to emphasize how much Sarah loved her mom and how proud Sarah's mom was of all Sarah continues to accomplish as she pursues her dreams.
I know we all want to help in anyway possible and also know Sarah is such a hard worker and self-motivator that she would never ask anyone for help. As much as I want to honor Sarah's feelings and do not want to embarrass her in any way, I think the biggest gift we could give Sarah is financial peace. Because of the last minute flight, funeral expenses and missed days at work, I can only imagine the pressure she must be feeling as rent is soon due. I was told she was planning to leave Ohio this Saturday to get back to work, but I would love to gift her with making it financially feasible to spend more time with her family at this difficult time while not worrying about work. Of course, it would be her choice of how to utilize these funds, but I'd like to offer her that freedom. And I'd like to offer it anonymously
I hope that together, we can continue to make Sarah feel loved, admired and supported. While we can't make up for the love her mother gave, we can remind her how much everyone loves and cares for her. This fundraiser is only one small way we can help. The next year is going to be especially challenging and we all need to continue to check in on her when ever she crosses our mind (which I am sure is very frequently).
Thanks ahead of time for making Sarah feel loved in whatever medium you choose to do so.
Please DO NOT publicize this page as I do not want to embarrass Sarah but please DO email it around to everyone who would want to help. :)
