Dear Robin, Frank, and Mike,
I still wake up each day and see this on the internet and I think to myself that its a mistake. I want to say that you are always going to have her in your lives. She is very much alive. I had not seen her in years, but had been in touch via email and myspace and she clearly does give of energy just as much now as she did since we touched base. We came across each other online randomly. I truly am sorry for this horrible tragedy. Sara will be with everyone for ever. I can't think of one person who she didn't have an impact on. She loves you guys so much....always raving about her big bro and "awesome 'rents'". I wish I could be there. My heart goes out to you all.
Let this be a lesson to you all out there in the community. Just because you are a responsible person doesn't mean that everyone else is or isn't.... accidents happen. But if you have the slightest reservation....don't get in the car with someone who you think is not suitable to drive. Just look at what this has done to a great family that raised one of the most genuine people I have ever come across. Food for thought.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
