We first met in 1969 at Colorado College. Sarah was quirky, funny and kind. After we all graduated from Colorado College, we reunited 8 years later at CSU where John and Sarah both earned their Master’s in Geology in 1981. John and Sarah’s advisor, Frank Ethridge, had a huge impact on all of us. John and Sarah spent 6 years together at Amoco Denver, where she got a lot of material for her books. From those early days at CC, CSU and Amoco, we always managed to keep in touch. Most recently, we saw Sarah and Damon at a symposium honoring Frank Ethridge at CSU last September. Sarah was such a beautiful, free spirit who will live on in her Em Hanson forensic geologist novels. Sarah, Damon and Duncan, you are gone too soon. Rest in Peace and May Light Perpetual Shine Upon You.
