Sabrina had to close the family business in 2017.

After her heartbreaking grief, tributes poured in for her grandmother Death.

Her family said, “On behalf of the family, we would like to thank everyone who has shown us support and love during the development of this nightmare.”

“Sabrina was a loving and devoted mother, a beloved grandmother and a well-loved member of the Eastbourne community and enjoyed walking with her dogs through Eastbourne, where she would meet other like-minded people.

“Her dogs Abra and Tricks, like us, can’t understand what happened as they pine, stare at the door, and expect Sabrina to come back.”
