Very sad. Sarah was a very accomplished individual, very knowledgeable and certainly helped a lot of people in camera decisions.

I will miss her logical views on all things photographic.

Sarah was the first to reach out and provide welcoming assistance to many of us. She will be sorely missed. Sincerest condolences to her loved ones.

This is a very sad news. Sarah's comments encouraged everyone in the forum, newbie or senior, to perform better. Her own photos were impressive too. My sincere condolences to her husband and her family. We will certainly miss you, Sarah, may your soul rest in peace.

The tribute page spells her name differently. Could it be a different person?

I am very very sadden to hear the news of her death. She was a very kind lady who would help anyone who had a digital photography question. She once helped me with a battery issue I was having and turned me on to Sanyo Eneloops which did the trick for me. Every time I use those batteries I will think of her. May she rest in peace and may her husband be in a good mind frame and found help to take care of himself since her passing.
