  1. I'll Miss You, Friend

    I knew Sarah for more than 25 years, and she was truly one of a kind!

    I learned so much from her, especially looking at small details that most overlooked. We would go into the forest, and she would point out a small flower or plant I would never have noticed. From my friendship with Sarah, I’ve learned to look at the world through her eyes.

    She was also a very caring person who thought of others and loved animals, rescuing dogs and several pot-belly pigs. I think she would have had a small zoo if not for Alan’s objections.

    I will miss the hours we spent on the phone talking about our latest interests and updates of our lives. Alan would ask what we are were talking about for hours, Sarah would reply, “nothing.” We would continue for another hour because she cared about me — and I knew Alan cared about Sarah to let her catch up with his friend on the West Coast even if it would be for hours at a time.

    Sarah will be sorely missed, and I will always treasure our special friendship forever.

    With Love,

    Wayne Kitchen

  2. I was fortunate to meet Ssrah at the thrift shop
    She was alot of fun to work with. We had many laughs together. I’m glad we kept in touch. I will miss her funny posts and her friendship. RIP Sarah. My condolences to her husband Alan

  3. I was very saddened to hear about Sarah, my dear friend of 35 years. She was our next door neighbor, realtor (we bought and sold our homes through her), teacher of life experiences to our daughter and a helpful and caring woman. She drove to Nags Head from Richmond to pick us up when our car broke down and back to Richmond in one day. I will miss our conversations and funny experiences.My family’s deepest condolences to Alan, who also shared many of those experiences. Sarah, I will like you for always and love you forever.

  4. High school friend

    I am sad to hear about my friend! We had so much fun at Park View and later visiting at our colleges. She was funny, smart, and so cool! Her Mom was too! Later she and Alan helped us with our first houses! I wish we had talked more lately. She and Alan were married first and longer than anyone I knew. RIP, Sarah. Alan, stay in touch,
    Nina and Marc Lebow
