    Dear members of the working group,
    We were deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the untimely passing of
    Sarah Jones. She was an amazing person, full of energy and brightness. She
    was extremely knowledgeable and well connected in the space in which we
    work.
    We had the pleasure of having her as a co-chair of this working group for
    only a brief period, but before that she already played a significant role
    in providing input into the FAIR Data Maturity Model whilst we were
    collecting views from the sector. She provided extremely valuable
    presentations on EOSC and project activities related to FAIR.
    We will miss her dearly, she was a wonderful colleague and a lovely
    considerate and kind person.
    If you wish to share your thoughts and memories of Sarah, please see the
    post on the RDA website.

    Hello Keith,
    Thank you for the words below about our very sad loss of Sarah. I just wanted to check the time of the funeral, which I believe is 14.45 (UTC) not 15.45.
    All the best,
    Angus

    I think so many of us are reeling from this loss – it just seems so hard to believe, because Sarah was full to the brim of life and energy and endless generosity amongst colleagues. Thank you Hilary and Ingrid for going to the funeral so that her family will know how much she was admired by the entire community.
    Natalie.
