We were so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom Sarah. We shared so many laughs with both mom & dad during the Ed Rooney Shows. OMG your mom was the sweetest ever. I can remember the rehearsals & shows like they were yesterday.
This photo of our Sarah is her all over. It just opens my book of days past.
Our sincere sympathy to all of children & 12 grandchildren. She had to be in her glory when all were together.
You were so lucky to have your mom & dad. Remember all the good times.
With all our love & big hugs,
Carol & Kevin Quinn
Heaven is surly a very lucky & happy place.
