  3. Dear. Gordon and Family

    It was with heavy heart I read the passing of your beloved Sarah
    As you know I was blessed with having Sarah as my room mate at the Kelowna Cancer Lodge. The weeks we spent together made our stay go so much faster.
    During that time I made a beautiful friend. Sarah’s spontaneity and positive attitude was contagious. It made it so easy to fall in love with this sparkling little lady!
    I so enjoyed our coffee chats once we were home from the centre, at Sarah and Gordon’s home and at our farm in Turtle Valley.
    I only wished I could have visited more!
    I will always remember Sarah and cherish her wonderful stories of all her travels with you Gordon …. The wonderful trips flying … To different places … The back road trips … Her stories of you and the family ….. Always told with that special “twinkle” in her eyes … !!
    I did not know Sarah for a long time but in the short time I did know her she will always remain in my heart as a dear friend.
    Rest In Peace my Dear Friend
