Subject: RE: Sarah Morgan R.I.P.
From her Facebook page:
"Dear Facebook Friends of Sarah,
Suse here, Sarah's stepdaughter. It is with a heavy heart that I let you know that Sarah passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday night, at home and surrounded by her dear friends Angus, Moira and Carolyn. The part of her life's journey made with cancer was mercifully short and - in her usual indomitable style - she burned as brightly, if not brighter, during this time than ever: performing three shows and leading workshops with CMR at Whitby, visiting her favourite hotel in Lyme Regis (even venturing into the sea!), FINISHING HER DOCTORATE!! and still playing and singing until only yesterday. You will all know what an incredible person Sarah was and have had your lives touched by her; you will all feel the tremendous gap left behind now she has gone. Please know that every lovely message you sent was seen and appreciated; every kind thought prized. Thank you so much for being her friends! Love, Suse xxx"
I am heartbroken to read this, She was one of the lights of the folk world, musically as well as in person. Her courage and spirit in the face of the end shine through everything.
