I am so so sorry for your lost. I never knew Sarah but I knew of her. When she came and picked up her cap and gown from Bellevue University I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with her. She came into the room with the biggest personality as if to say I did it and I am here to get my recognition. She had such a glow and a wonderful big beautiful smile that was contagious and it was just wonderful and it is etched into my mind. Even though I didn't know her like a friend her passing has really affected me as I love seeing graduates when they come into our establishment to get what they worked so hard for. May God bless your family and give you the solace and comfort you seek and need. You will be in my thoughts and prayers always as Sarah had a profound effect on me even if but for a few minutes!!


I never knew your daughter, but I used to know the (2) of you Scott and Michelle. We hung out with Mike and Julie Johnson back in the racing days. I never knew what had happened to you until the Trump campaign, but I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so very sorry for your loss and I admire what you have been doing to make meaning out of what happened. GOD bless you both and carry onward and upward. Craig
