Harold and I always enjoyed our visits with Miss Sarah. She and Harold enjoyed reminiscing about years gone by in Georgiana. She was a delightful lady with a great sense of humor. We always left with a big smile on our face and she would be smiling also. To the Family, may God give you Peace and Comfort. We know she is in a much better place.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs Sarah's passing, but no doubt that she is rejoicing with the Lord! I have such fond memories of her throughout my lifetime. She had such a wonderful spirit and I'm so thankful to have known her. I know you all will miss her greatly but will be comforted in knowing where she is.
