Joe Patane, also a reported clinical social worker, revealed on Twitter that Becker was committed to helping others through therapy. “Sarah Becker…dedicated herself to becoming a therapist to better understand her own mental health struggles,” he tweeted. He also expressed hope that she would now be at peace after her tragic decision.

A final farewell: remembered as a selfless friend

Flora Alekseyeva remembered Becker as “the most selfless person,” even though they had not been in touch for years. Devastated by the news, she couldn’t suppress her raw emotions. She wrote, “RIP my roommate, my friend. May you skate with angels and never feel pain again.”
