Just yesterday I was watching part of a classic Who where Sarah tweaked her nose at someone. Such a cute scene. I watched all the new Sarah Jane Adventures when they came out in 2007. And I loved seeing her and K9 back with the Doctor during Tennant's years. And of course all her years with Jon and Tom. It's so sad and such a shock too. :cry:

dear all -

have just been out on The Net, and this is just all so sad. :( so vey sad.

sarah jane was always my FAVE companion, and seeing TOM and her together both on and off screen was always just so very special.

can not even begin to know how the Bakers must feel right now, not to mention how dear Lis's family has all of this to deal with. my deepest thoughts and prayers go out to all of them.

this is all just so very sudden and grief laden. :cry:

RIP lis.

I just read on Pattie Anne's place about Lis Sladen. Such a total shock and much much too young.

My condolences to her family and to all she's worked with, especially Tom as she helped him to start off as the Doctor as one of the best companions.

I was watching "Masque" Sunday while working in the of my favorite Sarah Jane's episodes.
So sad to read of her passing. :cry:

I have been stunned since the first tweets came in this afternoon (U.S. time).

In tribute I just re-listened to the first volume of Liz's Big Finish Sarah Jane series. It opens with her crying at her beloved Aunt Livinia's funeral. It's a scene so sad and somehow so appropriate for today. The loss of Liz Sladen is almost like losing a dear aunt, one forever immortalized in videos and photos old and new.

As Liz's extended family, it's so good to have a place for us to grieve together.

I just read about the passing of Liz just this morning when I hit Gallifrey One. I am so sad.
RIP Liz.
You will be missed.

Another bright light has been turned off too soon.

But now, there's a new, very bright star in the sky.

She had what Tom has, both on-screen and off: an amazingly friendly, welcoming charisma. She gave that to her fans. It's why she'll be so missed and why she'll be remembered for a very long time.

Dear Forum Posters -

What a sad, sad day for Dr Who fandom. And sadder still for those who knew and loved Lis the best, her family and co-workers and personal friends. What an incredibly beautiful, talented and special lady. And a true lady in every sense of the word. Will she be missed? Well, in her passing not only has she torn a gaping rip in the fabric of space and time, but has put a sizable hole in our hearts.

You will be sorely missed dear lady Lis.

dear all -

still so at a loss for words but i think lord byron said it best:

On the Death of a Young Lady, Cousin to the Author, and very dear to Him
Lord Byron - 1802

Hush'd are the winds, and still the evening gloom,
Not e'en a zephyr wanders through the grove,
Whilst I return to view my Margaret's tomb,
And scatter flowers on the dust I love.

Within this narrow cell reclines her clay,
That clay, where once such animation beam'd;
The King of Terrors seiz'd her as his prey;
Not worth, nor beauty, have her life redeem'd.

Oh! could that King of Terrors pity feel,
Or Heaven reverse the dread decree of fate,
Not here the mourner would his grief reveal,
Not here the Muse her virtues would relate.

But wherefore weep? Her matchless spirit soars
Beyond where splendid shines the orb of day;
And weeping angels lead her to those bowers,
Where endless pleasures virtuous deeds repay.

And shall presumptuous mortals Heaven arraign!
And, madly, Godlike Providence accuse!
Ah! no, far fly from me attempts so vain;--
I'll ne'er submission to my God refuse.

Yet is remembrance of those virtues dear,
Yet fresh the memory of that beauteous face;
Still they call forth my warm affection's tear,
Still in my heart retain their wonted place.

I can certainly sympathise with her family as I lost my father to lung cancer eight years ago today.
