What a blessing to be at her bedside as she went home to be with her Lord. She was certainly an inspiration to many people and a example of how to live and how to die. I will always remember the time I shared with her.

Wonderful, giving,warm, caring,selfless,genuine, loving, saintly are all descriptions that come immediately to mind when I remember Sarah. We loved her before she married into our family, and even more after. She never missed a day of visiting & care for Aunt Nellie in the nursing home. I am sure Sarah was welcomed with loving arms in Heaven, & many stars adorn her halo. We will miss her so much!
