Sara_1_2Whether she was a daughter, sister, cousin, niece, classmate, or friend, no one that knew Sara has forgotten her since she was taken away from this world on August 8, 1999. She was on her way home from a trip to Virginia Beach celebrating her high school graduation, and she was scheduled to begin classes at J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College later in the month. Instead, she never made it past the Bottoms Bridge exit on I-64…

I have been "working" toward next Tuesday for some time. It sounds so harsh to say Sara has been gone almost as long as she was here with us, but that is the horrible truth. How can that be?!?!!!! How can I express how I feel? Words fail me. The pain and emptiness inside of my heart are indescribable. Only another mother who has sadly experienced the same thing can even begin to come close. Even fathers experience their pain differently than a Mom. Everyone has different emotions, memories, reactions and heartaches. No one can say they know exactly how another Mom feels because we are different people with different experiences. Sara was so loving and giving and caring. I can only think back and wish I remembered more of her. As a "typical teenager", I know there was SO much more of her that, as Mom, I didn't know. Maybe more so than normal. That loss is something I feel all the time but even more profoundly at this time of year and in March.
Even more this year as we are also missing Michael, my nephew, who went to be with Our Lord on August 7th, 2016. One day before Sara's anniversary. Anniversaries are supposed to be happy times of celebration. The only celebration I feel is knowing where they are and one day soon, we will be with them again. Forever and ever.
Kathy Troccoli has a song called "Goodbye for Now". It says more than my feeble words can say about missing a loved one. I even have some of the song on Sara's decal on my windshield. I love Elizabeth and Daniel more than life. This time of year, we all feel the loss of a lifetime of happiness and memories.
I guess I have really have taken a lot of room here, but it only barely says what is happening in my heart. Thank you all for loving Sara and keeping her memory forever.
Elizabeth and Daniel, words cannot express my love for you. Always and forever.
