Sadie, you beautiful girl.
I was bullied terribly since youth and remember promising myself I'd take my life before I ever entered Senior High.
I was just in Bedford a few days ago and when I think about the Christians I met, I wish you knew more of us....the bullied. The outcasts. The self-consciousness and loathing we faced and the suicide attempts we all discussed...
A bully does not hate you. They hate themselves or their situation in life....which I never knew until I got older. That hatred is a sickness and loving others and accepting your faults is part of growing up and past all this.
Sadie, it sure sounds like you were loved and as a grown woman. I would have been there for you too.
If I'm allowed to miss you and what you were becoming, please grant me this as well as the serenity knowing you are in God's capable grasp.
All our love from Newry.

A.

So sorry for your loss, I'm glad you're strong enough to speak on the reason. I hope the bullies take notice and your family can heal.

Social media is still passing this around. Miss Sadie is still touching hearts. Safe journeys sweet girl! May those that held you dear to their hearts be comforted.

The mama-bear in me wishes the tormentors were called out by name so they could not discredit their own involvement, but I applaud the family for taking the high road in this. Hopefully the hearts of the bullies have healed from whatever drove them to such depths of depravity. It costs nothing to be kind, but Miss Sadie (and others in the same situations) is too great a price for unkindness.

Thank you again, Miss Sadie's family (of blood and of heart), for your bold words that speak to each of us.

My wife shared Sadie's story with me, I felt the need to post. Sadie was a shining star. I am deeply sorry the bullies didn't care about what they we're doing. It's so tragic I can only imagine Sadie's pain and now her family and friends. God Bless Sadie I know she has found comfort in God's arms. God bless her family may they find strength in this horrific tragedy. Sadie is an Angel to all of us! Rest in peace beautiful Sadie. God Bless Sadie and her family. May the world be a kinder place. May our children learn words matter. I will keep Sadie and her family in my prayers.
God Bless, I am truly sorry.

I was looking for my friends obituary when I saw Sadie'My first thought was what happened to this beautiful young girl so I read her story. I'm so deeply sorry for her pain and the loss of Sadie life. To her Aunt who posted Sadie's story your courage to tell her story and try and help others who are bullied took tremendous strength. I wish I would have known Sadie. I am so deeply sorry for Sadie's pain and the pain to her family from her loss. Sadie is now an Angel in Heaven after reading so many condolences she has become an Angel to many of us although we had never met. God bless Sadie and her family. God bless her Aunt. Rest in peace Sadie the world is a sadder place without you. I will forever remember your name and your beautiful smile.

What a touching story, I really hope this can show the world how we must spread kindness to the world , and to pay attention to the little things in life. Sadie, is an example of how we must support one another in difficult moments and she was an incredible warrior in this life. Sadie was an amazing person, and she has an even more incredible soul.

We are not perfect, but we are doing our best two try to raise two good kids in a world where so many things are going wrong. Please know I won’t stop fighting to make good people out of my children.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Sadie, for their devastating loss. Death is perhaps the saddest thing we face in this world, the only comfort we have is the hope the Bible gives us for the future, in which God promises a time when death and suffering will be washed away for all eternity, when “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” (John 5:28) and we will be reunited with our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death. May the God of all comfort help you to endure this loss, remember to “Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you,” (Psalms 55:22).

Dear family of Sadie Riggs,
I am really sorry to hear of your loss. As a young person myself, this really touches my heart as well. I would like to express a message of encouragement to your family. It is a message of hope for loved ones who we have lost. It says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away" (Revelation 21:4). This is the beautiful promise that God will not allow for us to feel the sting and pain of death in the very near future.
My sincerest condolences to you and your family.
Sincerely,
Kristen

I wish to express my deepest consolensces to the family of Sadie L. Riggs. I so sorry to hear that such a beautiful, bright shining talented young lady is gone. I wish her peace and so sorry to hear about the torment of her bullies that she endured. It's such a horrid thing not to understand the concept of love and allowing people to just be. I hope someone learns from this. We all are here a limited time and that includes the "bullies" too. so I can say that there is a God and one day we will have to give a full account of our lives and how we lived and treated our fellow man and our fellow sister. I hope those that don't know Jesus will get to know his undying love and forgiveness before it's too late.

Bishop Desmond Tutu said, “Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Every time I do a little bit of good, I will think of you.

I am very sorry to read about the pain Sadie must have endured, and the loss this family has suffered. She sounded like a sweet, and wonderful young lady May God embrace Sadie in His loving arms and comfort Sadie’s family.
For those responsible for this tragedy, you will have to bear the consequences of your actions not only today, but for the rest of your lives.
Bullying is never acceptable, it is abuse. If you see it or hear about it, DO something about it. You might help save a life.
To Sadie’s family: I hope that you are all well.

I do not know Sadie or your family. But I'm a mother of two girls and a son who I had to bury in 2001. I know some of your pain, it's not natural to bury your child. They are supposed to bury you. This is not something you will ever get over. Time will soften it some, but you will always carry her in you. I pray that those "bullies", get some of what they gave. But they won't be able to take it. God will sort it out, love each other, talk often about Sadie. And don't let others discomfort stop you from speaking your memories. I had to learn that lesson over time. God bless all of you.

I know we are told to forgive. That also will take time. It hurts so many people. I tell Brad's siblings we can have regrets but not blame. Know people do know how you feel. God bless you all.

As the beneficiary of many acts of kindness, I can testify to the power of a simple gesture, a smile, or a phone call. It feels good when we are nice, it is that simple. May we examine our own actions today, resolve any strains within our control, and ask forgiveness for the times we have hurt someones feelings.

I have always believed that everything happens for a reason.......but when someone so young passes, it is so hard to believe what the reason could be. I believe that God has big plans for her in heaven...he needed a shining Star to help him out with something special, and she was the only one who could do it! Please take comfort in knowing that there are many people, like myself, who despise the actions that have lead to Sadie's death. Everyday when my kids leave for school, I kiss them and tell them to "be kind to everyone!" I hope that your words reach out to many who need to hear them......and this bullying stops.......we are losing too many too young..... <3

So, very sorry for Sadie's passing. This touched me so very much. My son was bullied much of his time in school. He will be 23 on July 22nd. He has Asperger's (high functioning Autism). He also is bi-racial and I raised him alone with no other siblings. He doesn't show emotions, so I'm not sure if he is truly ever okay with things or not. I stepped in whenever he did share incidents with me and did what I could. He will graduate from college in January 2018, I hope. I easily cry over these things as it is so unnecessary and I wish kids/young adults could see what it does to them. I was once told that bullies pick on others because they are jealous, not sure if that helps, but I hope with all my heart that Sadie can rest in peace knowing that her message has been heard quite a distance away from where she lived. God Bless the person who wrote this and God Bless Sadie.

I wish that she could have received some help with her problems.....It is a shame that there wasn't anyone that was able to get through to her, and help her. People today need to stop and look up from their i pads, and see who is around them that could use a helping hand , and for God's sake, help them some how, some way. Everyone , in every family, has someone that could use a helping hand in today's world. Please pay attention to your loved ones around you.

Please know that the world is worse off now without you. A young lady that endured and fought through the struggles that were willed against you is so sad. RIP now and enjoy your enternal life with our Lord. Maybe if I am fortunate, we shall cross pathes on the other side and it will be a pleasure to know a young lady with your strength and endurance. Until then, watch over your loved ones and be the Angel God called home entirely to soon.

Like the butterfly, Sadie is out of the cocoon of hate and fear that others wrapped her in.
Please try not to hate, let God deal with them as He has promised in His word that He will do.
May Sadie's death be used for good, to bring change in the world and bring awerness to the problem of bullying. In Christian Love, your sister in a Christ.

Sweet Sadie, I did not know you but my heart is physically aching right now because of your loss. I'm so sorry you couldn't hold on any longer. Sending peace and love to all who loved you.
To anyone listening - especially the young ones - know that whatever you are going through, it's temporary! I promise you!! I know, it's so painful and it feels like it's never going to end. But I know it does end and you'll rise above it. You are going to be happy again. You are an unbelievably special person who is loved. You are going to have a beautiful life and wait till you see what job you'll find and who you're going to marry!!! You'll be so happy. Believe that!!!
The people who are making you feel worthless feel worthless themselves and that's why they are bullying you. A strong, cool, confident and kind person would never bully someone else. Only the weak bully. Remember that! You are stronger than the bully is!! Way stronger. You're an eagle and eagles fly higher than the crows do. Fly higher.
I love you, whomever you are.

I'm Bridget, I'm a nurse from New Zealand and I just wanted to respectfully pass my most sincere condolences on to the family of Sadie. I will be unknown to her dear family because I read about Sadie's story on social media. Thank you for sharing her story and for being so strong in standing up for what is right; love, kindness, hope and forgiveness, despite the incredible pain of losing your precious girl. My heart goes out to you, may God bless her and keep her forever in His arms. And may His love surround you always. Kindest regards, Bridget x

If we could all open our hearts and minds and have the vision that a suicide would occur.....how many, beautiful lives we would save. A constant reminder that we need to have many, many more programs and insight into bullying. God bless each and every one of you in her family as you search for answers.

So sorry for the loss of Sadie. I did not know Sadie or anybody in her family, but after reading the obituary felt compelled to write, may she RIP in the arms of Jesus who was also "Bullied"! It took a lot of courage and inner-strength for the family to post "cause of death". I hope it serves the purpose of making people think before bullying anybody. May the Lord help you in this time of sorrow. God Bless!

Sadie, I never knew you except in the Spirit of God and His goodness. Today the world has become an unkind and cruel world. You were caught up in others thoughtless acts and words. Life is tough even when others are kind, but when so much cruel and evil is thrown at us then life becomes painful and unbearable. Sadie, you were here for a reason, there was joy for your being. Your beautiful smile tells me you were so wise for your years. Just know you are now at peace, you were loved when you walked this earth and you will continue to be loved by those that really the knew you, the real you. A life gone to soon, a spirit broken, but one that Christ will and has healed. He felt the pain and wept at the abuse, you are His Child and no one, no one can ever take that from you. He made you for his own and for-ever you will belong to Christ. Leave here in God's Peace, leave here in God's Love, leave here knowing the words of our Lord, "forgive them for they know not what they do."
In His Love, Forever and Ever,
Amen Mary Ann

This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read, and God Bless you for every single beautiful word that you said! A true Believer and in my thoughts, you’re a reason behind one of God’s glorious smiles!
This world- Just all the coldness and disappointment around us- from what we as CHRISTians see and just can’t comprehend, when we see some of those around us who choose not to believe- could sadly, be so blind, and make this world what it doesn’t have to be and should not be- are only making Heaven that much more of a Wonderful and Glorious place to be called bome to!
And I know, I will one day be surrounded by angels who were once people just like you/ and one of them will be you! Looking foward to that day! What a day that will be!
God Bless you- and keep being a reason Our God smiles! I know I will! ❤️

Kudos to the family for posting the true "cause of death" and explaining what happened.

A friend of mine shared Sadie's obituary on Facebook. He wrote in his post "Those of us in education live with this fear every day. Click on the link, read Sadie's story. I will do my best to follow their request at the bottom of the page." He is a teacher and I am, too. Please know that I will continue to do my best every day to not only be kind to all those I meet, but I will work hard always to protect the Sadies and teach empathy to the bullies.
I cannot imagine your pain and I pray for peace for all of you. I pray that you can be strong for each other. May God continue to bless you with good things, clearly you are good people.
May Sadie's story teach us once and for all the lesson so many still have not learned.

Rest in peace Sadie Briggs. Clearly, you were loved very, very much.

You do not know me, but I read about your daughter from a friend who posted her obituary. I cried my eyes out because she was such a beautiful girl who should not have left this world so soon. My purpose statement that I feel God d has given me is to "foster a culture where women/girls embrace their unique purpose and unique voice and to inspire them to embrace the skin they are in without comparing themselves to others. " I promise that I will share Sadie's story every chance I get so that she did not die in vain. I am soooo sorry for your pain...but what the enemy would like to use to destroy you and your family, God would use of His glory!! I will pray every time you come to mine!

May you someday find peace within your self, but please know that none of this was your fault. I have much experience with suicide from both sides. You did everything you could to help your daughter. She has her wings now - please know that she is still in each of your hearts though her soul is free. May God give His blessings to you all.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Sadie, and my heart breaks for her family and friends. My mom ended her life at 46, I was 23. It was hard to let her go, and worse to feel the pain of the people who had not walked in my shoes.

I give thanks for Sadie's short, but meaningful life. I hope her light always shines in those she touched. It is so hard to understand why people come and go so quickly, but in time, I hope the pain becomes less sharp and you are able to always remember her life with a smile.

Blessings to you, her family and friends. May you always know grace, compassion and love.

This is so heartbreaking! This world needs to take a serious stand on BULLYING! I have two children who are bullied really bad and over so bad I had to take them out of school. Suicide had crossed both their mind. These poor young children DON'T DESERVE THIS! GOD DOESN'T LIKE UGLY!
SADIE had her while life ahead of her, all to be stolen from a bully. I PRAY FOR THESE BULLIES, AND ALL BULLIES, TO PLEASE CHANGE THE WAY THEY TREAT OTHERS, AND TO SEE THIS AS A TURNING POINT TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF THE CHILDREN BEING BULLIED BY BEING THEIR FRIEND INSTEAD!
I'm so sorry for your loss and for the heartache you have. I'm sending hugs to all of you including the BULLIES. This beautiful girl is in the arms of Jesus now. No more evil, ONLY COMFORT AND JOY! MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND SURROUND YOU WITH LOVE AND COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE. FLY HIGH SWEET ANGEL!

Thank you for sharing this obituary for Sadie. So many times those who have a loved one who takes their own life do not even write an obituary. The funeral is private and they appear embarrassed by what has happened. When we acknowledge these hurts it can help to recognize that need for loving kindness so many of our lives sometimes lack. The rise is suicide is barely recognized because obituaries aren't posted. You are hugely helping to change so much in our society by mentioning the fragileness of Sadie (and all of us!) Thank you for your honesty and allowing the truth to be known. Love and condolences to all of you during such a tragic time. May God always bless and keep you.

Because of somega of the things I went through as a teen I have done everything in my power to keep my daughter from going through the same. However, bullies will bully anyone, no matter their status. I commend you for putting this out there for the world to see & know that someday these bullies will be parents & will understand what they did. Hopefully they will raise their kids to be better people than they were. God bless you and your family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have a 16 year old daughter who has had 3 suicide attempts. We too are seeking professional help. All my daughter wants is a friend. My heart is crushed when I fill out the 20 pages of information when she's hospitalized again and again, that asks about friends. I have to put none. My daughter has ADHD , but is so caring and would do anything for anyone. (That's where the problems start cause she will do anything for a friend) A friend... that is all she wants. Again I'm so sorry.

Anyone out there who thinks they are better than another,stop for a second -instead of bullying someone so you can feel or look cool,say hello to the person get to know them you might get to meet a best friend. I don't know the family or Sadie I saw the obituary on a FB post. I commend the family for acknowledging her way of death. Hopefully it will help stop the ridiculousness of bullying

Due to unfortunate reasons I didn't know her very well but have recently become close with my aunt and her other daughter and it is still hard for them to deal with. It's terrible how people treat each other these days. We all have faults and to make someone else feel worthless is just horrible. Especially someone like this young lady seemed to be like. She was truly not worthless, priceless is what she was. I hope you find peace someday. She's in caring hands now.

To all of Sadie's loved ones I am so deeply sad for you. My husband took his own life over 17 years ago. I can't imagine how much more difficult it is to lose a child in such a way. Your bravery in posting this obituary may very well save another precious child from the same fate. I will be praying that the Lord will encamp his angles around you and give you comfort.

Your message was so encouraging yet so powerful and straightforward to all the Bullies, followers, groupies....whatever.

On a personal note, my grandson was born premature 2 years ago Christmas Eve (our miracle baby-4#) Born with Tortacalis and oblong shaped head....just beautiful. Hard of hearing but we love him!!!!! I'm not sure what Sadie went thru in life to have you all join her as family; I do know my grandson Gunner is going to be one lucky boy if he has half the love I felt in your message.
May God's love keep your family strong and bonded...YOU WILL SEE YOUR SADIE AGAIN ♡♡♡♡♡ Thank you for sharing your heartbreaking story, you are all so courageous "Especially Sadie"

I commend you for making this public, we all need to awknowledge the waste of a precious life caused by the lack of respect and bullying by others.
There are no words or actions that will help ease the terrible pain and anguish you feel right now. Know that there are many of us out here that have walked not in your exact footsteps but close enough to them to understand some of your grief.

I want to express to you my deepest heart-felt sypmpathy for the loss of your beloved Sadie. I lost my brother to suicide four years ago. He was 62-years-old. I will forever have a hole in my heart, a hole that will never fully heal. My faith in God is what holds me together. I have had to accept that I will never understand why, and that he will never return to me, on this earth. But I take comfort in knowing that we will be reunited on the other side. I will pray for all of you, that you can pull through this difficult time, and stay emotionally and spiritually intact, and please open up and receive the gift of faith, from the Lord. I KNOW that God has Sadie in his arms now, and she is in a good place. God bless you all, and please forgive the bullies. The circumstances that led them to their selfish and mean acts towards Sadie may not be entirely their fault. Perhaps they were raised in an unloving environment. I will pray for them also...God help them all. Hate divides us...LOVE unites us. I LOVE each of you!!!

My deapest condolences to all of you trying to come to terms with Sadies passing. I worry this may be my family one day as my grandchildren start middle and high school. It's so hard to listen and try to say the right thing that helps take away from what kids hear at school with children their age, children who should not have the hate and anger so many bear. I often question is it out of their own pain, fear, or torment they feel that lashing out at my/your child is the only escape they know? Has compassion for one another really disappeared in our society? How many families will go through this before enough is enough. My heart breaks for you, may you find solace in the joyful memories that you have of Sadie. RIP Sadie.

We are so sorry for your loss of this precious girl. May Sadie be at peaceful rest, knowing she is beautiful and worthy of love and respect by all. I wish no person would bully or demean another. That is hateful and only makes the devil happy. When I used to be a middle school teacher, If I had to deal with a student who was being a bully, I would ask them if they planned to be a parent one day. They usually say yes. I would ask them if they would ever want their own child to be bullied, and of course, they would say no. I wish bullying could be eradicated, but it is alive and well in our society, unfortunately. Thank you for sharing Sadie's story, hopefully it will touch the heart of someone who has bullied and make them think twice about doing it again.
God Bless You All!

Dear Family and Loved ones of Sadie, I did not know Sadie, but I am so sorry for all that she must have gone through and for all that you are going through. Thank you for sharing your message in her obituary about the tragic comments that lead Sadie to feel so hopeless. The world is full of hateful people, no one knows why? Why on earth do others wish to destroy people around them, there is no reason for it, nothing to gain, only pain and agony. If any person is reading this who feels hopeless, please know that you are not alone, others have walked the horrible walk with mean and nasty people. Do the best you can, whatever that is to stay away from the monsters and remind yourself that they are the monsters and that you will come out on top if you allow some time to pass and you focus on you, not them! You can be what you dream to be. The days directly in front of you may be awful, but keep reminding yourself you are somebody and you deserve all that you dream to have. You can and will reach your dreams. I'm sorry the monsters were so relentless and beat Sadie into this most tragic situation, from heaven above I know Sadie will provide guiding love to her family and others.

I also did not know Sadie, but her story touched me deeply. My own daughter attempted to take her life 15 months ago at the age of 35....almost leaving behind a 5 & 13 year old. An ex husband had bullied her to the point that she felt she was truly worthy of no one. There is truly no medical explanation as to why she survived, except for the fact that God had a plan for her. Your honesty in Sadies obituary was not only brave, but unbelievably refreshing. I found it to be a tribute to Sadie and it was such a beautiful way of telling the world just how much she mattered. Her bullies are the ones that will suffer as they live on and will pay the price as most bullies are truly unhappy and miserable people. Sadie was truly lucky to have had such a wonderful family and I can only imagine how much she will be missed. Thank you from me and my family for being so honest and not sugar coating the truth and putting out the typical obituary. I don't know Sadie, but I can promise you that I will always remember her story. God bless your entire family.

I pray Sadie's story finds its way to as many people as possible and that her parents find some comfort in the fact that her life on earth will not be forgotten and will have impact on millions of people! Perhaps even save the lives of others...God Bless

The bullies will remember this for the rest of their lives. They may act like it doesn't but in the silence they know what they did and one day they will have to answer for their actions. You were precious to God, and to your family. I am sorry you didn't feel there was any other way to stop what was happening. I pray that your family finds peace and your bullies find help.

Words can not explain the feeling that is felt when anyone dies. Especially when a youn beautiful child of God takes their own life.
It is horrible that she couldn't find safety and love in her life.
I know the feeling of losing a loved one in this manner. Knowone knows what has pushed this person to do this, that being said they definitely wanted to leave us by the way they have died.

Sadie you are at peace now. I have my mom, brother, many relatives and my fur babies. Go to them, their arms are wide open to love you.

There will always be unkind people in this world, people with no confidence themselves or people who do not treat others nicely because they were never treated that way. Our actions are a ripple affect, bullying can cause depression and suicide, but love creates love. May this be a lesson to all people, young and old, that your words/actions mean more than you think they do. Be kind to every person you cross paths with. You don't know what they are going through.
Sadie will always be with you. Where there is love, there is life. God bless.

But please know that there are many people across this country who are praying for you - praying for your comfort and for your strength to keep moving forward each day. The pain will never completely disappear, but with God's grace, you will experience a "new normal" and you will get through this. You are already a witness to others in your response to the bullies that pushed Sadie to the brink. Please do not hesitate to contact me in San Antonio, Texas if you ever need anything.
Your brother-in-Christ,
Daniel W. Meyers

I lost my brother 3 months ago to suicide, it's a long process for us that are surviving after such a loss. I will keep Sadie, her friends and family in her life in my thoughts.

Although I never met Sadie, I have experienced the same pain. I hope she is at peace now. I want to let her family know that when the pain becomes unbearable, there is nothing anyone else can do to help. You could only give her love and support, which I know you did, but sometimes it just hurts too much. Now she is free from her pain, although you are not. She did not mean to hurt you, she only meant to end her pain. I hope you can accept that and continue your life with love for her and everyone else as she would want you to, as a tribute to her life. My deepest sympathy on your loss.

I know there are no words that can comfort you in the loss of your beloved child, but know that we are thinking of you and praying for your peace. We also pray that Sadie is at rest and you find the strength to carry her light in your hearts. Keep her light burning against the darkness of this tragedy.

I didn't know Sadie, but I know someone like her. That was me nearly 40 years ago and the effects of that time still are with me. My youngest daughter just went through some pretty traumatic bullying. We caught her heading to the medicine cabinet and literally had to hold her back. I just want to say thank you so much for sharing Sadie's story. That, by itself, will probably save a life or lives. I will be praying for Sadie's family and friends and will add her to a prayer list at our church. God Bless You!

So sorry for your loss. I lost a son to suicide. His wife was leaving him to take their children to another state to live with her high school boyfriend. No amount of bitterness would ever bring him back, so I had to forgive her in my heart to be free of the pain the bitterness was causing. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive (though that's the last thing on your minds). For me it was the only way to relieve the pain and, yes, hatred I had for that woman. He was in such pain and had unauccessfully tried pills. His wife gave him her gun and saud, "here! You want to kill yourself? Do it with my gun." There is always a great deal of pain with a suicide. Pain that won't bring her back. I also joined a grief group at my church which helped me to talk about my feelings. In time, I pray you will find peace. Sadie is in the arms of a loving God, who takes away all pain and sorrow. The image of this gives comfort when you have faith. God be with all of you who loved her.

Just read about Sadie's passing and I want to send condolences from me and my family. I am from Antigonish but live in Alberta. First of all I want to say thank you to the writers of Sadie's obituary. I have never read one like this and I credit you. We have to be telling the truth about mental illness, suicides and the bullying. Your statements at the end were well written and was the truth. Better to get the truth vs rumors. I am so sorry for you and sorry for Sadie's untimely death. Such a cutie, you can tell by her smile that she was a trooper! As she looks down at us, perhaps she can send some understanding to the bullies. (One of my brother's passed away at 17 years due to hypothermia. That was 33 years ago and I still grieve for him). I wish for all of you to deal with Sadie's death by remembering about her. God Bless... Linda

I am so sorry for your loss. So tragic. I wish peace for your entire family. I am not sure I would be able to say your words to the bullies who tormented Sadie- you are better than I. I do not wish for them the same as you but perhaps you are right- we should all hope this kind of mean behavior stops. My prayers are yours.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Sadie. I too have a 15 year old boy who went through very much the same. He was bullied for years. I went too the school, put him in counciling and medication for the depression. Luckily he told his therapist when he was going to kill him self and he was hospitalized. Kindness is all that was needed by other kids to make a change in his day. Instead he went to school in dread and came home defeated. I'm sorry Sadie met the same cruelty and was bullied. I hope she is flying high and in peace now. My the Lord comfort you in this very sad time. May kids read this and realize there words leave scars on others hearts and choosing to be kind could save someone's life.

I do not know your family or Sadie, but her hardships that plagued her are well known to us all. We all share responsibility for this by either not brining our children to task when they are hateful and hurtful of others or simply not standing up against bullies when we see it happening. Silence may be golden, but not in this case nor will it ever be acceptable. We all must stand up for those who suffer in silence only to be brought to this horrible ending. Sadie's smile belies her horrific hurt suffered by those "bullies"...may they now suffer the rest of their lives with the knowledge of the part they played in her demise. My deepest condolences to you all and bravo for your loving tribute to her. Her smile will live on in your hearts.

Secondly, thank you for posting this and acknowledging the bullies role. Our kids today are up against a tough society. It is unreal how some kids act today and get away with it! I wouldn't be a teenager again for a million dollars!
I encourage you to continue Sadie's story! Share it with middle schoolers and all ages! Make this tragedy have purpose-maybe saving that other teen who is being bullied but thinks they're alone!
May God grant you peace!

Lovely and Gorgeous Sadie,

I know you will be reading this :-) for nothing ever dies in this world and beyond. All that remains after death is LOVE ! This is all there is and is the essence of creation, itself!

I know you are in a better world. I know you have forgiven those who hurt you because you know that they acted out of ignorance! They have a lot to learn, still... and this is their Karma. They will have to learn from this.

I am lighting a candle for you right now. I have chosen a purple one. It reminds me of Jesus. I hope it makes the world of Light, where you now are a little bit brighter....

Enjoy the world of bliss where we will all meet one day,

Tanouja from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

This saddens me greatly, these kids nowadays disrespect their peers, family, and elders. To the bullies this crap needs to stop. You need to think before you treat people the way you do, it effects them greatly. The only reason I know this is because I was bullied in school and I know exactly how it effects the one that is bullied. To the family and friends of your I am sorry for your loss.🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁

I'm so sorry for your loss. I myself was bullied and I barely came through it. I thought about suicide so many times. And finally had to quit school after eighth grade because of a group of girls who filled me everywhere, made fun of me in school. Beat me up multiple times and I was so humiliated I hid the bruises from everyone. This is a horrible thing to happen and i am so sorry from the bottom of my heart that you lost her. I'm sure she was an incredible bright young woman. I hope those bullies read this and understand this when I say it. You need to stop. Look what you've done not only to this sweet young girl but to her family. To her friends to everyone that loved her so deeply. You have destroyed lives just to make yourself feel better or to look cool in front of your friends. You should be ASHAMED of yourselves. She may have took her own life but you were a big part of why. I hope this will show you that this is a serious matter. And to stop trying to put others down to make yourselves feel better. How dare you do this to this girl and the people who cared for her.
To all of her loved ones. Again I am so incredibly sorry your all going through this. And if there is ANYTHING at all that you need please do not hesitate to email me and i will give you my phone number. I would be happy to help y'all in any way possible. I wish you all the best and even though it's a sad situation, remember you will be with her again someday. My condolences.

I am so heartbroken for you and for Sadie. Nothing can make what she and you have gone through OK. But please know how powerfully your response to this unimaginable loss has spread across the world and inspired so many. Sadie should not have had to endure this, and fewer others will have to endure it because of her and you.

Your message reminds me of my favorite quote from Martin Luther King:
The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate.
In fact, violence merely increases hate.
So it goes.
Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

On a night already devoid of stars, Sadie's story and your call for us to be kind to one another will drive out so much darkness. Thank you, God bless you, and I am so sorry.

I don't know any of you but wanted to let you know you are all in my thoughts & prayers. I know all to well what bullying can do to someone. I am almost 62 years old and way back in the 70’s when I was in high school I was put through hell by bullies. I don't know how I survived it but I did. It has though, affected my whole life. What I want you to know is I never once blamed my parents or family for any of what I went through, I knew how much they loved me and that they would do anything to stop it, they tried but the bullying continued. Your beautiful Sadie did the only thing she thought she could to stop it, for herself and her family and when your state of mind is where hers was you don't think there is any other way to stop it. Sadie will be with you always, she carried your love with her when she left, she will hold you all close until you meet again. You gave her a beautiful life, never doubt yourselves or the love you had for her. RIP Sadie, you are a beautiful young lady.

I do know the family Rylee, Micah, Sarah, Alicia, Bob and Stephanie and their many friends. My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Bob and Stephanie, the grandparents of Sadie Riggs. Words cannot describe how passionate, loving, and giving these two people are! Their parents, children and circle of friends all share the same characteristics. Stephanie is the rock for this whole circle of people and is loved by so many, including myself! She has a heart of gold, is wonderfully strong and has endured many obstacles in her life, including battling cancer and the loss of her husband. And yet, she continues to have an inexhaustible source of compassion for others. She always knows the right thing to say! She raised two daughters, who learned from her and treated the kids they raised with great love, even though they were not theirs by blood.
Steph is my mentor.
I, too, have experienced bullying, depression, family alcoholism, a parent involved in murder/suicide, and other family tragedies.
My faith in God has had an enormous impact in making me the person I have become. My heart bleeds for my friends that will not accept the Lord, for their lives are unmanageable and they seem to be in constant pain. I don’t know why He exists, he JUST does. Here are some scriptures that I lean on when needed. I encourage Sadie’s family and friends to do the same and remember God does deliver!
God will not reject a person of integrity, nor will he make evildoers prosper. He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Job 8:20-21
Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. Psalm 55:22
Weeping may go on all night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5
He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. Proverbs 12:25
Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:25-34
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. 1 Peter 5:7
Don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. Galatians 6:9

Sadie, Sadie, beautiful young lady.......I do not know you but I feel your pain. I was teased incessantly in school, esp in high school because of my weight. I understand the pain you were going thru because of bullies, as I faced it daily also. It was overwhelming painful most of the time and many times I thought about making the decision that you made to end the unbearable pain.

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to every person who was touch by Sadie being in their lives. I can see she had a large extended family whom I am sure loved her dearly and she touched each and every one of their lives in a truly special way.

Be free Sadie and some day we all will meet up again. May God bless you and keep you safe.....

You're family is in my prayers. Thank you for having the courage to write this obituary the way you did. May it spare countless other children from the pain Sadie endured. There's too much of this heartlessness in our world. Our community has buried more than one child who chose to take their own life to escape the pain of being bullied. Even one is enough to tear your heart out of your chest. My son who is now 25, was one of the "popular" crowd in school. One day many years ago he came home from school and told me about a kid who his friends were picking on. He stood up to them and protected this young man never once worrying about what they would think of him! He even sat with him on the bus coming home. I have to tell you that was the proudest "Mom" moment I've ever had. He may have saved a life without ever knowing! I wanted to share this story to let you know that there are good kids out there. But they need to speak up for kids like your Sadie. Watching others bully and just standing by is being part of the problem. I wish Sadie had someone like my son to help her understand that she loved by other kids.... it just takes one... Soar with the Angels, beautiful girl. ❤️

He was teased his whole life. As a child from having a limp...as a adult for not being worldly and partying but rather he served the Lord.

I do not know you or this dear sweet child. I do know the pain all to well that you all are going through. I have had to live with my niece also hanging herself because of a bully and a boy. My brother took his life, from what I was told was do to the extreme pain he was in. I wish there was a way for me to take all the pain and hurt away, I am so sorry I can not. God entrusted this little girl with you so that she could know, what unconditional love truly is.then he decided he wanted her back. I can't say the typical " Time heals"because it dosnt,it makes it bearable as you learn to live a new normal. I can say with certainty that she loved you all. She didnt want to do what she did, but she felt there was no way out from it. Know it wasn't anything you did or didn't do. The angels have her now, I am certain she is happy and playing her music for the angels.
As for the bullies, I know you are reading this, you will live everyday knowing what YOU did. I was a victim of bulling all through school especailly high school it got worse, let me tell you something, you better be live in KARMA because it does exist, the girls that made me quit 1 school, are now unable to find steady relationships let alone a real job. She is a miserable person, k ow too you will be also. Only God can forgive you for your sake you better hit your knees.
This angers me when I see a young person take their life because of bullies. , I hope and pray your family never has this happen to them.
Rest easy little one.

May God hold you in His arms and allow you to be free from all the pain.. To the Family, please accept my Condolences on the loss of such a beautiful young lady. I'm so sorry she had to go through that...

I am so, so sorry for your loss. My son lost a friend to suicide plummeting my son into a deep depression. This epidemic of teen suicide, especially from bullying, must be made aware of. I will be praying for comfort and peace for your family.
