Some information on Sarah.

Many will know that we lost Sarah last weekend a star troop, a young Mum, wife and part of the RAF Mountain Rescue Family. Sarah’s husband has been in touch and has seen my blog and the many comments by friends it gives the family great comfort. He will be in touch with me reference funeral arrangements which due to the nature of Sarah’s death the date is at present difficult to forecast. When I get any information I will update through the usual channels. Sarah’s loss has been mind numbing to so many least of all her close family and young sons. She was a great lass, one of us and was so enthusiastic, bubbly and loved the mountains, Mountain Rescue and its member’s. She coped in what was then primary in the military “a man’s world” and proved without doubt that she was equal to all of us and great company on the hills. Please if you have any photos of Sarah send them to me and I will collate them and pass on to the family. Stories and memories are what make Sarah specail as well fell free to add them. I leave you with Kenny Kenworthy’s words which sum her up for me. “I like to think that those of us in charge were these young people’s guardians; entrusted with their well-being and tasked with giving them some life skills besides great adventures that hopefully have stood them in good stead throughout their lives. When one of then goes prematurely it is a real jolt and the sadness is palpable. Death can never take away the memories though” Kenny Kennworthy RAF Kinloss MRT Team Leader. I hope to travel down whenever the dates are released. Thinking of you all.
