Sara taught me a very great deal. She also supported and encouraged me in all sorts of ways. I thought about writing a tribute to her, perhaps finding exampls of her great wisdom and kindness to quote to you, but what I feel now is a little personal, a little raw. Both Elizabeth and Kay have written about her death.
The most important thing to be said, I guess, is that I feel very very fortunate to have known Sara. She was one of those friends who altered the shape of my world. I am very sad just now, but she was more than worth it and I shall continue to benefit from the gifts she gave me. I really hoped to finish my book before Sara died. It was something that we talked about.
In other news, I have a new keyboard for my EEE PC and everything seems to be working. I would be ecstatic about this after the boredom of the last ten days without it, but ecstasy is slightly beyond me just now. At least I can now get on with my work.
Oh, Goldfish. I'm so sorry for your loss-- and the loss to so many others who loved her. I only dipped into Sara's blog a couple of times over the last couple of years; she seemed a very wise and good-humoured soul. I'm glad her blog is still there. Writings like hers make the internet a better place.
Sending thoughts of peace nad comfort your way.
So sorry to hear about this loss of a dear friend... I can understand how hard it is to articulate how you feel when it is so close. Hugs and well wishes. I'm looking forward to reading your book.
Sorry to hear about this loss.
My thoughts are with you and Sara's family and friends.
May she rest in peace.
Didn't really know her, but read her blog a few times - and we took part in a Halloween story memey thingy together.
Consider my metaphorical hat removed and my head bowed.
Thanks everyone. Penny has linked to the various posts about Sara as well as some of her best blog posts here.
So very sorry to hear this. It touches me that you have made a very dear friend through blogging, and your deep sadness at her passing is testament to the very real friendships that blossom. Long may it be the case.
the loss of a powerful voice is a reason for all of us to cry.
But we remain thankful that the voice, and the person behind it, came to us - and I'm thankful for a time, and a technology - which gave me access to that voice.
I'm sorry for your loss.
So sorry to read this post.
Very sorry to hear of the loss of yoru dear friend.
Thanks again everyone. Sara's partner Erik is maintaining her blog now, so do go over there if you feel inclined to.
