Sarah (Sammy) was a wonderful person, I enjoyed her in our Bible Study Group. She will be greatly missed but know she is in a better place enjoying her time with our Lord and Savior. Those we hold most dear never truly leave us, they live on in the memories of kindness they showed, the comfort they shared and the love they brought into our lives.

Kay and Fank, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. I will miss the pleasant talks we had at Church. She always had a smile on her face and seemed to adjust very well to living in our area after all the years she lived in Carlisle.
