So very sorry for the tragic loss of your precious Sarah.
Our heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will ‘swallow up death forever,’ Isaiah 25:8 says : “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it”. What a wonderful future hope that is.please visit jw.org where much comfort from the Bible can be found.
most sincerely

Dear Foster Family,
I didn’t know your daughter, but was one of her neighbors on 3rd and 37th street. I was there that morning, and I was devastated and heartbroken at the news. My prayers go out to you and all of those who were blessed to have known her. Based on what I have read and the things i have heard (my cousin teaches in the Harrison school district), she was a very special and beautiful Woman, touching the lives of all that knew her. My deepest condolences and may you soon find some peace in this unimaginable tragedy.

Dear Foster family,
Our children were in pre school together.
My heart is broken as I try to wrap my head around this tragedy.
All I can offer is sympathy and the hope that your precious memories of your amazing daughter and the loving thoughts of your community offer some tiny sliver of comfort during this painful time.

To the Foster Family,
You don’t know me, but I currently live one block away from this tragic accident scene, just off Third Avenue in Murray Hill. I have been consumed with this story since I heard it in the wee hours of Friday morning on 1010 WINS as I was getting ready for my workday——maybe too close to home for me to ignore—-and too close to home to simply go on with my everyday routine called “life.” My heart is heavy as I write this…..my feeling for your loss is deep and real. I was in West Haven just yesterday — celebrating a family member’s 93rd Birthday at Katz’s and visiting with my New Haven family—but could not help bringing thoughts of your family into my day. My heart aches for your loss. I am so terribly sorry. I find that now, since Friday, I, personally, am being more careful as I navigate through my neighborhood. Your beloved Sarah was beautiful. May all of you find a semblance of peace over time. Sincerely and with love through tears, a Neighbor in Manhattan

My heart is broken for your family. I can picture her as a six-year-old, full of enthusiasm and love. She was a joyful little girl. I have kept warm memories of her in my heart all these years. I didn’t know she had become a teacher. I am certain she was a great one.

Much love, from Susan and Anthony Taddei

Dear Foster Family,
Your daughter touched the lives of so many of her students. Our son Tyler was one of her students this year. He enjoyed her class so much and is very much affected by her loss. Please accept our condolences and know that we are with you in prayer and hope that peace will find you. We are so very sorry for your tragic loss. Sincerely, The Merolle Family, Harrison, NY.

Our love and prayers are with you your family. We had the pleasure of meeting Beautiful Sarah at Leah’s college graduation. Our hearts are just broken… just can’t understand this.???

My thoughts are with your family during this incredibly heartbreaking time. I worked on the same team with Sarah at LMK and had the pleasure of traveling to Atlanta without Sarah for our IB training a couple of years ago. She was so full of energy and life. Know that LMK will not be the same without her and we will struggle to continue our workin her absence.
