I will dearly miss my sister, her laughter, her smile, her advice, her love of family. The pictures and tributes have been very heartwarming. Her legacy continued with the grace and dignity you all planned her celebration service. She loved all of you so much. Heed her messages!! I certainly will. We will continue to enjoy her through her expanding family.

Larry, Julie, Lori, Ryan, Uriel,
I could not have asked for a better sister than Sara, she provided me with her unconditional love, full-time. From day one. I have a hunch that was her main purpose on this earth, to give all of us her gift of LOVE. And now, how lucky am I to have all of you in my life, as her legacy. Don't forget to unconditionally love your Auntie (sister in-law) and don't forget she gave me rights to continue to 'lecture' all of you. My deepest condolences to all of you. All My Love, Midge
