Hi there, sweet girl...I toast to you today.  My sweet girl.  I remember this last time we were here...just enjoying time.  We took time, we made time to make memories.  I am so glad we lived that way--not waiting till....

I have so many memories today of you and your "Sarah" way of living--how totally wild and well you lived.  Burning the candle at not only both ends, but somehow in the middle too.  I didn't know how short your life would be and sometimes would tell you to slow down, take it easy and you would just laugh at me...and keep on living the way you did.  Now it makes  sense to me.  I am glad you didn't listen to me but to your own internal compass.

It is hard to believe 6 years have passed.

How in the world did I keep walking this out? 

How did Chris keep walking?  The friends and family...how?

I know that God is so good to us...present in our agony, our sorrow, to help us.  To help me....

Just having such a hope to see you in the next life, the one that doesn't end.  The one my heart sings for.
Today is somehow better for me, to get to the anniversary finally after weeks of remembering and agonizing all over again the terrible tragedy and all the events that shook our world.

I celebrate today-your sweet and tender life...you.

I love you sweet Sarah C. 

I miss you so...

Seeing her smile in this photo, I can feel her warmth and caring now. How precious is her beautiful heart, shining through that smile forever. She is loving you from "over there" until that blessed day when you meet again.
Thank you for sharing Sarah with us here. I felt her so much on that walk through Cinque Terre, and am thankful to her (and God) for bringing us together. Sending much tender love to you today, dear Chris. Sarah could not have had a better mother than you; your loving bond will shine forever.
