With a black and white photo of Sarah laughing, Cheryl wrote: “Even though we knew this day would come, I still somehow miss the words that our wonderful, unique, crazy, weird The kind and gentle girl is gone.
“As I try to make my way through the painful and weird and terribly unbelievable waves I’m facing, I want to offer my condolences to all my GA fans.
“We’ve been like a big family for so long and we know a lot of you by name. I wanted to make sure you knew that Sarah loved you during her most critical time. And what does it mean to have continued support?
“She was very grateful and you really encouraged her when she needed you the most. I also realize that she will be deeply moved by the circumstances of Sarah’s death … I send you all a lot of love. I have been. “
He ended the post: “I love you, Sarah. Goodbye.”
