I got the call I’d been dreading this evening. I sobbed into the phone for 20 minutes, and I’m still teary now. The e-mail they sent says it better than I can.

Dear Ones,
It is with a heavy heart that we pass along this news. Sabina’s life on earth ended this afternoon. She was surrounded by all of those she loved the most. Bless her heart…she was putting up a strong fight at the end, as she did throughout the past 10 months. Sabina is such an inspiration. She has changed our lives, and I know she has touched each of you as well.
Although many of you on this list never knew Sabina, you all reached out to help during her most trying times. Her family feels your support, and appreciates each of you. We will continue to let you know how you can help provide support to her family. As soon as funeral arrangements are announced, we will let you know.
You’re thoughts and prayers for Sabina and her family are welcome. May we always remember Sabina’s courage, zest for life, and love for others.
For Sabina,
Georgia and Jennifer

Georgia and Jennifer are Sabina’s mom’s friends, and wonderful people. Even though I only met her twice, Sabina touched my life and my career in a way that I never expected.
