The loss of our only beloved Sarah was so sudden and unexpected, so we have decided to start this memorial fund in Sarah’s name, which helps us keep her fresh in our memory and make people more aware of epilepsy.Sarah went to bed that night happy and excited knowing that she was going out the following day on a trip with her school, and was also going to buy a new dress for her graduation and school disco. She was also looking forward to moving on to college in Liverpool, but unfortunately that never happened. On the 13 July 2010, Sarah passed way in her sleep from an epileptic seizure.
All of Sarah’s family and friends were devastated at the loss. Sarah touched a lot of people’s hearts and always lived her life to the full, a larger than life character to everyone that knew her. Sarah loved drama, music, swimming, fun fair rides (the bigger the better), Everton Football Club, cycling, playing on her Play Station games, shopping, but didn’t like walking.
Sarah was appointed the ambassador of her school due to her love of her school and her ability to help others, and still retains the position at the request of her school. Sarah loved the colour pink so we and all of her friends let pink balloons off at her graduation, the day we received Sarah’s diploma on behalf of Sarah, a very proud moment for us.
We think about Sarah all the time and every day miss her smile and laughter. We feel good that we have set up the fund and know that Sarah would be pleased that we are helping others by doing so.
