It is said, “The light that shines twice as bright, burns half long.” And oh, dear Sarah, how brightly, so very, very brightly, your light did shine.
On Saturday night, November the Twenty-sixth, Two-thousand and Twenty-two, Sarah Naomi Lloyd passed quietly into the presence of The Keeper of the Stars and Creator of All Things.
At last, for the very first time, Sarah was able to walk, no, run through the green, cool meadows with the wind in her hair, her toes feeling the cool grass under her feet and the tickling of wild flowers as they brushed her calves. She ran like the wind into the welcoming and loving arms of those who had previously crossed the Elysian Fields into Elysium, all those she had blessed on this earth by simply being near her light. Among those she now joins in paradise are her beloved grandparents, Pauline & John Staley, and David & Betty Lloyd, her mother, Brenda Snow, her uncles Stan Staley, and Jimmy Lloyd, and her aunt Judy Staley.
Sarah is survived by her loving and devoted fathers, Robert Lloyd and John Graham Stimis, with whom she lived; her steadfast and loving brother & sister-in-law Jered Benjamin & Kelli Jo Lloyd, her beautiful nieces Rylee Paige Lloyd and Amie Jo Talley, nephews Jerrett & DJ Brown, cousins Evan Staley & Samantha (Staley) & Sam' husband, Stevenson Crowleyn, uncle Don Lloyd & Auntie Luna.
Always giving, always caring, always wanting to help others even when she needed help herself. She was Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin, Friend to all, and a devoted & loving fur-mama to her beautiful cat, Patches, who was always by her side.
She loved being outdoors, come rain or shine. In her last few years, she lived with her fathers, "Dad & Pops". She loved to sit outside on the back porch with the garden, squirrels and birds. It was her safe space, her happy space, her special smokin' space.
Sarah loved life with ferocity. She loved the fantastic, nature, plants, trees, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, dogs, cats, and all living things, which also includes all magical creatures, farie folk, dragons, and of course, unicorns.
Sarah's light was so special, it could never really burn out. Her light became so bright, so brilliant, that her mortal body, the Earth, the Moon, the Sun itself and all the Stars in the Heavens could not contain her luminosity. Her light has brightened the heavens a bit more with a new Star. Her Star.
Bob and John request, if Sarah's light brightened your path, please take a moment to sign the guestbook below and leave a fond rememberance, picture(s) and/or memory.
