memory to share of Sarah is an event quite a few years ago. I believe
it was summer or fall of 1993. Judy drove the two of us to Walla
Walla to visit Whitman College in search of where we were going
to spend the next four years of our life as well as how we as human
beings would be shaped.
I have not known her in the years since, I remember from that short
visit her zest for life and learning, and a glimmer of the interests
she held in politics—as she would from that trip decide to
attend Whitman and major in such a field.
am immensely saddened by her departing life so young (we are almost
exactly the same age), and I am also so impressed and filled with
hope by the important and passionate work she has done in the community,
in nature and for everyone's spirit. May hers live on in our hearts.
