Sara, I remember the first time I saw you. It was our 1st Sunday at Heritage Harvest and you were leading worship. You shone then and have always been a shining light. I can still hear you say, "Miss Cathi". I was so honored when you asked for me to mentor you at one time in your life. Some fond memories were Wednesday nights at IHOP, when you and I shared a pull out sofa bed in Florida that killed our backs, laughing with you over your brutal honesty. I can only think of good things when I think about you. You were a wonderful Mommy to your babies and they will continue to carry your light. Even though we grieve over little Imma, it's comforting to know that you were holding her hand when she crossed over in to the presence of Jesus. What glory you must be seeing! I can only imagine.

You may not be here today, but you have left a life time of prints that will influence till eternity. I'm thankful that our families grew up together. You will forever be in my heart and forever missed.
I Love You.

I have known Sara Ann since she was 8 years old. She was a beautiful person with an even more beautiful smile. I loved Sara as she was my own daughter and when she passed a part of me went with her. Sara was an amazing Mom, friend, and I will miss her dearly. Sara, I have always loved you and always will. Till we meet again take of my sweet Imma Rose.

I remember beautiful Sara singing at church and all the fun times spent with her and the youth group as teens. Sara was a true light and will be greatly missed. I know she is holding little Imma in her secure arms in Heaven. My prayers are with all of you as you go through the hardest days in you lives.
