A few years ago I asked my husband what he wanted for Christmas and he said, “I don’t really need anything but I would love to have a Geologist take me around Sonoma County and teach me about it’s geology.” I had met Sarah through the Graton Community Club where we both were members and knew she was a Geologist. We arranged an all day field trip which grew to include Damon and a fabulous picnic lunch made by Sarah. Neither Steve nor I will ever forget that day for all that we learned but most especially for the opportunity to get to know these two wonderful, kind, funny extraordinary people who became our friends. We know all the geological hot spots in Sonoma County and we will never be able to see them again without sadness in our hearts and a smile of remembrance of Sarah and Damon. Since their death I have been re-reading Sarah’s books. The picture of her in the back moves me to tears. As I read her words I can hear her voice and I am loathe to let it go. We didn’t know Duncan because he was away at school when we met his parents but I can only imagine what a force of nature he must have been. What a huge tragedy it is to lose Sarah, Damian and Duncan. It is with great sadness that we will be away when their memorial occurs because we so want to be there but thank you to their family for providing this site. Words won’t bring them back but it helps to share our grief and to be able to say how very much we loved them.
