Poems for Sarah

A Poem read for Sarah at her funeral by her sister Robin:
A Very Special Sister
For many years we've shared our lives
One roof we once lived under
Sometimes we laughed, sometimes we cried
Through winter storms and thunder
The younger years have faded fast
We've gone our seperate ways
But through all time our friendship lasts
Our bond in life remains
As summer brings the happy times
The autumn winds will whisper
A closer friend I'd never find
Than the one I call my Sister.

Sarah, you weren't just our sister you were our best friend and we're going to miss you deeply! We love you

A Poem from Sarah's cousin Colleen:

A Poem by Sarah's Cousin Kaitlyn Williams, age 13:
A life is so easily given
That many don’t question their own
They watch as others perish before them
With nothing but a single glance
A life is taken by many hands
The hands of fate
The fallen hands of hope and love
And the hand of a single event
As time passes and life goes on
The memories do not disappear
Just fade into shadow of what was once a glorious masterpiece
The one that is lost is not the dead
But the one living who is unable to recolour the life they were given
If they are able to colour then no one’s life taken away will be in vain

A Poem by Sarah's Cousin Jackie Hopper:
  Though you've been with us for only a certain amount of time
  What you left us with
  Forever remains dear
  Many lives you've touched
  In your own special way
  Your smile is your sunshine
  That cascaded radiantly about
  It clung to those you cared so deep
  Now whenever I think of you
  I remeember always
  In dedication to Sarah, a cousin I'll always remember fondly of...

Remembering all the fun times Sarah and I had at work at the LCBO and our
little talks we would have about Love and life. I miss my little sister soo
much, but know she is keeping and eye on me from above. Love and Miss you.

"When the three of us, Sarah, Robin and Dawn had to share a room for a good
month or two while the basement was being renovated.  It was cozy, and we
had our fights, but in the end we all had a good laugh at the things we
said or did when we were stuck together.  We will never forget that."

"When I was in Peewee Hockey at a tournament in Kingston,
Leanne invited Sarah along for the trip so she wouldn't be bored out of
her mind. Turned out those two had a better time then anybody.  I had no
idea why, but they were laughing at everything I said and they couldn't stop
smiling. I thought I was the funniest guy in the world.  A couple years
later I found out what made me so funny, Haha. I'll always remember that."- Mark
