Aunt Sarah was a great aunt and a second mother to me when I was in my teenage years. The many nights
that I spent with her, Richard and grandma will always be in my heart and I think about them often. She is with her
beloved husband and the Lord and is at peace now.

her sitting in front of me every Sunday that she was able. My prayers for comfort for all of you.With sincerest sympathy,
