A kiss from Italy came to me this morning from Isabella...a woman who was walking in Manarola and was taking a photo of the sunset in Manarola from the place where Sarah's plaque is located and she turned and saw the plaque, Sarah's picture we left there over a year ago when we visited...and then googled Sarah/Ohio/Manarola and found her story...and my email....

As I woke this morning...here were her kind words and a virtual hug...from this land, my second home...

I am so touched, so blessed...a kiss from heaven today. 

I miss you sweet girl...

Don't often have words anymore to write here.  Just a deep quietness in my heart, holding you and each memory so very close as I continue to walk on in this life.  I wish somehow I could come sit here and listen to the water today..and be near where you took your last breath. 
But I live in this land, by this water you loved all your life.  I am a blessed mom...I live where you lived and loved too.  I will come to this land again...somehow I know...
Heaven seems near right now to me...I sense the veil thin, I feel your touch....I know.

Love you sweet girl.

What a lovely blessing for you. I am so glad that this dear lady came to the sacred spot, stopped, read, and reached out across the miles to you. Sarah inspires so many of us with love!
Much love to you, dear Chris.

What a gift and a treasure...a whisper from heaven...a reminder that all will be well.
Much love, dear Chris. I never forget you or your girl.
