Remembering “Granny” tonight...all the great times on the softball field and off. She was the BEST...with a constant smile, always laughing and enjoying life.
Thinking of you all with fond memories and much love.
My deepest sympathy...

The most memorable event of Aunt Sarah was when me and dad were at Golden Saw about 20 years ago. Aunt Sarah said "WHO can buck dance" Dad said Bonnie can ... I said "I CAN"! She was delighted that I spoke up! We thoroughly enjoyed it! Dad said that she got in trouble with the church for dancing! ??? Buck dancing, not vulgar at all!
