sara (left) and jenny (right)


Sara and her friend Jenny were driving to a dance on Saturday, January 6, 2001. They hit a patch of black ice and lost control. An oncoming vehicle hit the smaller car and Sara was instantly killed. Jenny was also very badly hurt and was rushed to the hospital with a broken hip. Sara left this world with a loving family and many friends - this page is for all of them.

To the people that don't know Sara or never had the chance to meet her, Sara always was a very happy and selfless person. Even if she was having a problem, or just in a bad mood, Sara would help others with THEIR problems instead. She never expected anything out of whomever she was helping. Sara was a good friend; funny, intelligent, down to earth and caring. She loved her family and friends very much, and had a strength of character unique for a person her age.

Jenny I've known since I was a little kid. She used to live behind my house in town and we used to jump on trampolines (much to the dismay of my mother). Our thoughts and prayers are with Jenny as well.

If you would like to leave something for Sara, please e-mail me (al @ this domain name). I have to disable the posting function due to spam.

     hey i heard what happened to Sara, i dont know her, but her and her family and freinds are in my prayers
From Joe (Phalanx)
     Although I didn't know Sara personally, I have felt the pain and anguish of those around me, and I have felt very poignantly the results of the death of a person so loved. I can speak for many of the people I know when I say that she will be missed. Her death will remain unexplainable, especially to those of those without the benefit of religion to provide at least some of those desperatly needed answers. To those with a religious background, please hold Sara and Jenny in your prayers. For the rest of us, simply think back on the memories of her, with a glad heart to have shared at least those. To Sara- We'll miss you

From Brian, Chris and Nick
     Sara and Jenny, Debbie and David and all of Sara's friends and relatives, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sara touched many lives as evidenced by all who were able to attend her funeral service. The readings and songs were very special. Please remember Sara and all of your special times together with her, she'll be with you when you do.

From Jewel Messick
     TO MAKE THIS QUICK I UNDERSTAND ALL OF YOUR PAIN I WAS ONCE IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND BECAUSE IF MY STUPIDITY AND NOT THINKING CLEARLY IT COST ME MY 5 YEAR OLD BROTHERS LIFE. THAT NIGHT I WAS NOT THE ONE DRUNK DRIVING BUT THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME WAS AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THE SCREAM OUT OF HIS MOUTH AS T SELFISHLY TURNED THE WHEEL TO HIS SIDE WITHOUT THINKING AND BOOM...IF I NEVER TURNED THE WHEEL I WOULD STILL BE ABLE TO SEE HIS SMILE BUT LIKE I SAID I WAS STUPID.. SO I KNOW YOUR PAINS BUT MINE ARE GREATER BUT SARAS ARE FOREVER.. SO TO SARA I LEAVE THIS..A ROSE WILL WITHER BUT THE PEACE AND HAPPINESS IT BRINGS WILL LAST FOREVER....

     RIP Sara, you've given us great memories.
From Joshua McKenzie
     Sara was a wonderful and fun person, and I'm thankful for the times I spent getting to know her. She grew on us all as quickly as she was taken from us all. But now she's even happier in heaven than she was while talking and giggling with all of us. It's hard for us all to forget and to remember, but it's comforting to look forward to seeing her and laughing with her again. "There's a time to live and a time to die; a time to mourn and a time to rejoice." Let us rejoice that Sara lived with us. We've all grieved that she's died, but let us rejoice again knowing that she knew Jesus Christ and lives with him now and forever to meet us there that have accepted Him as their savior as Sara once did.

From James
     Do not weep for the departed, for they shall return. And if they do not return, then they have achieved Nirvana, and so are in paradise. Love, and all shall go right. Happiness is gained only from inner peace. Sara, from your words, seems to have had it. Rejoice in having known her.
From Johanna Cable
     wel hi this is johanna cable. i was with her and jenny at dinner before the crash. Well what can i say Sara looked gorgeous adn she def. was. That day i had gone over there and we got ready together. It was one of those days when we talked abtou everything. It was great at dinner with my date alex bontz. marshall watry with tina treader, jason kontsin with jenny and sara with geoff kasmarski... well it was sos much fun. sara was the life of the party that night... lol on the way in she slipped but nobody saw execpt jenny and when we all met up there they wer laughing so hard then sara jstu blurted out i didnt fall jenny did. it may nto sound funny but i guess as soon as she fell she popped up .. it must haev ben halarious! On our way out they waitress told us to drive careful. and we did. When we saw the flames form our rear view mirror we new instantly and we all started crying. Probably the worst thing that has ever happened was seeng them together in the car. Well i dont mean to freak anyone out! i miss her alot and i always will. I cant say enough how differently im' living my life now from that. God has his plan and it was suppose to happen like that.I hope you all know she was very happy and beautiful that night,,, she always was.

     I knew who Sara was, but I didn't really KNOW her. She was a lot older than me at the time of her death. I knew some of her relatives, though. Sara, her friends, and her family are in my prayers.

     Sara we miss you
From Pam Klekamp
     Sara without an h......how deeply we miss you! I see your smile in Taylor, your kindness in Tyke, your wit in Chloe, your love in your father. My most cherished memories are those of just the 2 of us.....going to the mall together (we know that was difficult for your Dad to do!) and movies. And those precious nights when I would paint and you would IM your friends. We'd sit in silence and then you'd giggle and fill me in on what all your friends were up to back in Rhinelander. Then you'd see what I was painting and give me your creative ideas.....just you and I in cozy comfort. Thank you for all you have given me you dear, dear child. It cannot be expressed or measured in words! Until we see you again, your father and I will treasure the glimpses of you that are reflected in your brother and sisters! Remembering Sara with love, Your Texas Mom, Pam
From Taylor Klekamp
     Hi. Sara was my sister, and now that I'm writing this, I can't think of what to say. I guess I'll improvise...well, for one thing, I wish I had seen you more. I'm glad that I got to see you for Christmas before the accident though...I didn't know you too well. I loved you, but I hardly saw you, and I probably annoyed the heck out of you...I cried a lot. Sometimes I think about you and just go for a walk...sometimes I still cry. I moved to a new house. It's bigger, and theres a lot of land. I got a horse too. Her name is Cheyenne. I guess you already know this though. We all miss you. We made a video in honor of you. It has clips of video tape of you when you were little, and pictures, and that time when I peed in the bath tub when we were both taking a bath. Sorry about that....but I guess whoever has taken the time to find this site, and read this message loves you a lot. 3 Taylor

From Chloe Klekamp
     Hi Sara was my sister her family loves her she was and is a great sister we never forget January 6, 2001. She never was mean and loved us a lot. We loved it when ever she was with us we diden't wan't her to leave. When ever i found out she passed was when i got home from Aunt Nancy's house. Everyone was sitting in the living room waiting for me to get home to tell me this terrible information. I was 4 years old i did not think they were telling the truth. They told me the story and by seeing there faces i slowly found out that they weren't kidding. It was so hard we love you so much it was hard not seeing you after that just thinking of that crash scares me. WE LOVE YOU SARA! 1-25-08

From Mom of Sara
     Dave has just started hanging out with your brother again. I told him how you made this beautiful website for his sister. He didn't know. I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you did this. Sara has disappeared except for here. What a kind and caring young man you are. thank you
