My condolences to Sadie's family. All my memories of Sadie are fond memories and they date back to when I was in my early teen years. Even with five children, she never said no when Donna invited her me, Darcy and Rita to her home for sleep overs. It was not until I was an adult with a child of my own that I realized she had more energy than most. How did she cook three large meals a day, can food, and still have time for her children? She was amazing. Donna I am glad you invited your mother on our trip to Hawaii. I still charish those memories. I will never forget Sadie and her family.

My condolences to the whole family. When we were growing up Mrs. Putney always welcomed me and all of Donna’s friends. We had plenty of over-nights, ate lots of her food and drank lots of her iced tea. In fact, she was still welcoming me into her home for over-nights as recent as last week. We did a bit of reminiscing about a broken curfew one night when Donna was young and how I may have had a part in it. Oh she remembered alright! Mrs. Putney, you will be missed.
