Sara was the roommate of my mother-in-law Maxie Casey at Sarah Todd
Home. She seemed like a lovely woman, and by the care and concern and attention her family gave her in those years at the
Home, Sarah must have been a thoughtful and loving mother and grandmother. My mother-in-law will miss Sarah greatly, and I
wanted the family to know that.
