    We went to NHHS with Sarah and still saw her around town.When I think of Sarah, I see her friendly smile. She was a sweet lady. Praying for comfort and strength for her family during this time that is much too soon.

    Susan I am so sorry to hear of Sarah passing. Sarah was a dear sister that I know you will truly miss. I remember as a child the three of us playig board games. Sarah so loved beating us in Monopoly and Parcheesi, it seems like just yesterday. I saw her a few years back and she still had that same bright smile and laughter. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.
