  1. Dear Peg and Andy–I am so sorry for your loss of precious Sara.May the timeless Grace and Love of God carry you gently
    through the loss your feeling now. My last 22 years as one of Sara’s nurses was filled with many moments of sunshine
    and laughter. I would frequently ask her…”What color is it Sara?” And you know she always new the color of the VHS/
    DVD that she wanted to watch which I couldn’t find at the time and helped me find it. When next I see Sara I know she
    will be walking towards me with her bright big smile of laughter and sunshine! Remembering you in prayers. Becki O.

  6. Dear Mr. and Mrs White,
    I was so saddened to learn of Sara’s passing. It was such a pleasure and honor to work with her while she attended Greenwood. She was truly a joy to be with. She lit up every room, especially the auditorium when there was a concert! She could steal the show with her beautiful, graceful gestures, even when she wasn’t in the show!
    Wishing you peace and the joy that comes from beautiful memories.

  10. Even though we have not seen Sara since her Middle School days ,we have thought about her often and miss her. We enjoyed carrying her to school on bus 33. She would sing to us and recite whatever she had watched on TV. She brought sunshine and happiness into our lives everyday. Many prayers for you at this time. Linda Haines and Arnold Reeves, bus 33,Kennett.

  12. Andrew and Margaret,
    Sara was a treasure of a human spirit. l am honored to have been her speech therapist and a part of her education during her elementary years. Her cheerful recognition voice when saying hello and her laugh will be with me and many many others who were lucky to know her. What a great memory Sara had! It was a treat to see her in the community, at parades and the Kennett Run. When Sara laughed and smiled, it made the world shine. Sara was ready to play games, talk, interact. She was resilient, persistent, determined and sure did have a mind of her own! I’m honored to have been a part of her elementary school years and to have known two devoted and loving parents.
    My warmest heartfelt condolences,
    Janet Ruggieri

  14. Dear White Family,
    I am sorry to learn of the loss of your daughter. As Sarah’s music teacher at Greenwood Elementary, I have many fond memories from Sarah’s years in my classroom—her delicate and lovely singing voice, her enthusiastic playing of classroom instruments, her infectious laughter and her quiet determination, even on days when she might not have felt her best. I am grateful and honored to have had the opportunity to participate in Sarah’s education. Wishing you light and peace in the face of such sorrow.
    Warm regards,
    Cheryl Haley
