My cousin will live on in our hearts.
Sarah Kristen Petersen, our sweet little girl, passed away suddenly on June 3, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta, at 21 years of age. She was born on March 17, 1991 in Nelson, BC. Sarah grew up in Salmo, BC and graduated in 2009. She was living and working in Calgary, enjoying life and all it had to offer while making many new friends along the way. She was truly beautiful on the inside and out; happy, friendly, caring, positive and most of all kind. You could often find her laughing and lightening everyone’s day with a beautiful smile on her face. Friends will remember her as a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. She will be forever missed. Sarah is survived by her father Glen; her mother Tracy (Kirk); her sister Valene, who she genuinely admired; and her brother Collin, who she loved dearly. She also leaves behind her Grandpa Brown and several loving aunties, uncles, cousins and an abundance of friends. She will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew her and loved her. “If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you’ve made me smile the whole evening sky would be in the palm of my hand”.
I want to thank everyone who offered their support and love throughout this time. It’s been just over 3 weeks and when I think of her, and I do often, I see her smile and hear her voice. We love you Sarah.
