Kind, adventurous, creative, music lover, beautiful soul
Sarah was very well read and an avid music lover. She loved going to concerts and sharing new music. She also enjoyed cooking and hosting dinners with family and friends. Sarah launched her own business, Synapse Jewelry and Crystals, and worked consistently to improve her Jewelry making skills. She was excited to be accepted into the Canton Flea Market and prepared a lot of jewelry to sell at her first big event.
Sarah enjoyed hiking the trails with her dog at nearby Quail Hollow State Park and loved spending time with her niece Ava, and nephews Manny and Ryan, who she was very close to. She was kind and sensitive and genuinely happy for the success of others, but struggled with anxiety and didn’t see her own beauty.
Sarah’s sister, Jessica said: “Living around someone with addiction is hard because often we only see the addiction and fail to see the person that we love.” Now, Jessica tries to remember the pain that those with substance use disorder may be dealing with. “Just because they appear happy on the outside, we don’t always know what they struggle with.”
Sarah’s family is forever changed by the loss of their “Valentine girl.” They feel that Sarah watches over them and is happy with their accomplishments and success. Jessica states: “I often pause and admire the beauty around me and feel Sarah’s presence. I will continue to dance to the music, enjoy more concerts and live more freely to honor Sarah’s memory, she is loved.”
Sarah’s sister, Jessica Hill, provided the information for this narrative.
