Dr. EB dedicates this episode in honor of her patient, Sara Feuerstein, who is now with her comrade angels.
Listen closely, and hear from her family as they describe with visceral passion, palpable love and vivid admiration; Sara, a very special daughter, wife, twin, sister, mother, grandmother, friend, counselor, mentor, leader, a faithful believer, and a champion of love; blessed and gifted with the most unique talents- shared unselfishly with a humble spirit, a tender soul, and a kind heart, soft yet studded with gold.
There are really no perfect words to fully and accurately describe Sara Feuerstein.
However, we hope that this podcast, this memorable tribute, will provide you with a glimpse of the life and heart of Sara, whom we were indeed blessed to have for 59 years, as a loan from Heaven, to cross our paths on this planet - earth.
