Sarah Lee was a wonderful person. As a student at UE, she became a second mom to me. She listened to me and gave some wonderful advice. I especially enjoyed our walks in which we had some wonderful conversations. Also, I especially appreciated her faith (with our differences in belief being shared and appreciated) and her devotion to her family. I am deeply saddened and will miss this good-hearted, faithful person that has left us, but I have no doubt of her passing into a place of peace. Goodbye, Sarah Lee.

I will never forget Sarah Lee's hospitality, love, and loyalty toward everyone with whom she came into contact. You all are family to me and I feel as though I've lost a big sister. Thank you for sharing Sarah Lee and thank you for being a part of my life as well. I love you all and am keeping you in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. God be with you.
