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…

As the dreaded day, August 8 looms closer, it has been 19 years since I saw, talked and held Sara. How can it be 19 years!?!? Seems like yesterday I received the unbearable news from the state police. And yet it seems like forever. I guess grief of losing a child is a lot of ups and downs. The downs outweigh the ups. I take heart in the fact that I know where Sara is and I will be with her forever, one day. Not a day goes by without me remembering and missing her a hundred times over.
As the date comes closer, I look for ways to remind the world that they are missing a beautiful spirit. One who would give her only blanket so someone else can be warm, even if she would freeze. However, as usual, I think of things like a newspaper article or contacting news and media, too late. And so, I remind my Facebook friends and family. A lot of you cannot forget as well. So I ask you to see the butterflies and smell a beautiful flower and if you are so led, donate to the humane society, (money, time or anything to honor Sara's memory). Hug your family just a bit longer than normal. And always tell them you love them.
I know this is long, but she is worth this and so much more. Thank you for loving and remembering Sara. It means more than you can know. God bless you all.

We met Special Agent Gunderson, the agent assigned to Sara's case this afternoon. He was very nice and understanding. He is going back to the beginning, talking to everyone again. It won't be an overnight deal, but he will be working on this.
This Aug 8 will be 19 years. Totally unreal and unbelievable. I don't even know how so much time has passed. 19 years with no hugs, songs, smiles and her sense of humor. 😢
