Sara had a broad and varied sense of humor. She was always laughing and reminding people to not take life too seriously. She had a strong sense of self-confidence; she always knew her worth and knew who she was. Sara had a smile that could light up a room, and a beautiful soul. She shined as the brightest light, and left a mark on all those she touched. She will be missed beyond measure.
Blessed be the memory of Sara Dawn.
