With a heavy heart I'm said to say that we have lost Sabrina (MexicoSab). My brother in-law Terry received this message from her husband Alberto last week.

Hi Terry

With great sadness in my soul and heart

I have to tell you that I have lost the love of my life
Mi friend
My partner
My everything

She passed away on May 13 due to a liver failure

My angel is with God now
That’s a fact!

Pray for me
I need God’s help to cure the pain and fill this hole that she has left on my soul

I know how much she love had for you guys and the all gang at Stove bolt

Thank you for your friendship.

I posted below a picture captured from a video on their Facebook Page showing what Sabrina wanted. A simple outside service with her Yellow Chevy truck in attendance.

It's been more than 10 years ago that I met both Sabrina and Alberto at the Stovebolt Reunion in Kansas City. She was so happy to meet up with fellow Stovebolters in person and her interest in these old trucks was genuine. Awhile back I had noticed that she wasn't posting much anymore and I just assumed that life priorities had been the obstacle that was keeping her from the Stovebolt.

She will most definitely be missed, not only by her immediate family, but her Stovebolt family as well.

Wow, that makes me sad. RIP Sabrina.


When I die, I hope she doesn't sell everything for what I told her I paid for it!

Peggy and I are truly saddened to hear about this. She is a real loss to our little community. Sabrina was a truly nice, kind and outgoing personality here on Stovebolt and in person. She and Alberto made friends instantly with all of us in Kansas City that year, and certainly on line with many more. And what she may have felt she lacked in knowledge and experience with these old trucks, she more than made up for in her passion, energy and encouragement to others. I would say that she will be missed, but while that is true, it is also an understatement. I'm sure, when Peggy is able to get to the computer again, she will add her own words.

Once again, our world grows a little darker and less warm with the passing of this bright, warm light.

Sabrina always showed true compassion in her posts. Not only did she love these old trucks, she loved the people of Stovebolt. She was especially fond of Joker. When he moved on from Stovebolt she kept in contact with him. A truly nice lady. Rest in peace Sabrina.

I had just spoken to Terry a few days ago and it was a shock to hear such a sweet wonderful young lady had left us. Victoria and I met them in Kansas and immediately we felt as if we had known them for a much longer time. She and Victoria talked about perhaps us even making to a visit to see her and Alberto on one of our "road trips".
My heart is sad for the emptiness Alberto, and the entire family feel right now. RIP Sabrina and blessing asked from above for the family to be comforted.

It hurts to have to post two consecutive posts regarding lost friends. I just submitted my post on Squeeze and just now noticed Sabrina had left us as well.
We never met but we did email. She seemed larger than life and I got to know her family through these emails. It is really shocking and all I can say is to quote Alberto "we have lost an angel!"
My best to her family and RIP Sab, you were one of us and we miss you already.

RIP Sab, I spoke with her on the phone a couple times when I lived in SoCal, we tried to meet up, but it did not happen.

Another quality post.

Having been on the 'Bolt as long as I have one gets to know the really good guys over the years.
Sabrina was one of the good guy. Never had the opportunity to meet her but I've felt that I
knew her by her participation here. Never heard a bad word from her about anyone, in fact,
just the opposite was true.
Sorry for your loss Alberto, but there's more to our lives than what we experience here on earth
and one day you well meet again.
