    My deepest sympathy on your loss of Sarah. She was a good friend and grandparent. She will be missed very much. The things she did for us in the grandparent group was the best that anyone could do. She helped all of us from time to time without thinking of herself. now she is at peace and hopefully happy.

    I will always remember your delightful sense of humor and how we would spend mornings walking and talking and laughing our troubles away. You inspire me to never give up. Your kind heart and compassion made a huge difference in our world, in the schools and in your home and in our grandparent community. What a wonderful leader and daughter, grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, friend you were. We were blessed to know you and the angels are blessed to have you. I will always miss you, precious friend, Sarah. May your loved ones find peace in the memories of your love and life. - See more at:
