One of the things I have so clearly learned from Daniel, is that people can die without a prior medical history, and that sometimes,on autopsy, no actual cause can be found. In these cases, a pathologist MD provides a presumptive diagnosis as a cause of death. This was the case in Daniel's death, and it was also the case with the woman above.
Sarah Goldberg is a forty year old actress who is probably best known for her story line on "Seventh Heaven". On September 27th she was vacationing at her family's Wisconsin cabin and was working with her computer on her lap. She fell asleep and never woke up. Her autopsy did not show a clear cause and so her passing falls within the category of those who are felt to be presumptive deaths from an arrhythmic (disturbed heart rhythm) cause.
Sarah had planned to study medicine but had a small part in the Julia Robert's film "My Best Friend's Wedding." She went on to appear in many movies and television programs including Jurassic Park III, Judging Amy, Training Day, CSI, Without a Trace, and House. She was also known professionally as Sarah Danielle Madison.
She was a graduate of Amherst College and is said to have been a lovely person as well as a stellar athlete. She is highly intelligent and held a degree in Microbiology. She had many interests while here on Earth and had an interest in alternative medicine. May she understand all that captured her interests and imagination now.
We send our condolences to her family.
|Sarah Goldberg as she will be remembered.|
