Sara was a dear friend who had a big heart and lived life to it's fullest. I loved her dearly, and always looked forward to seeing her big smiling beautiful face. She loved to fish so I was looking forward to another Trip to Reelfoot Lake to catch catfish on limb lines. She would wear rubber gloves for this, but loved it. Was looking forward to another poker game so the girls could team against the guys...that's not cheating! Or another Trip to Pickwick to ride on the boat and go swimming. Would love to hear your crazy laugh again. I will always think of you at Redbirds games cheering or carrying drinks or food for everyone. So glad I was able to hug you and tell you I loved you before you left. You were a beautiful woman inside and out.

Sara, I remember the first time I met you. It was at Memaws funeral. My first impression was that Aunt Linda was right, you were so sweet.. It wasn’t until years later & the very last time that we hung out that I really got the chance to get to know you. From crab hunting on the beach to jamming to Kevin Gates in the taxi to dancing and singing along to country music at the top of our lungs in Florabama and everything in between; It was such a great night. It was one of the first times that I had really been out since having Zara. You reminded me to let loose and have fun again. I looked forward to more nights like that with you, but I know that you are in Heaven & still showing everyone how to have the best of times.. Your memory will live on through each & every heart that you touched. Rest In Heaven, Sweet Sara.

The reality is that we don’t forget, move on, and have closure. But rather we honor, we remember. The memories we have will last a lifetime! From watching the guys skydive to the beaches and on the boats going out or just staying in the back yard. But the memory that sticks out the most is when we were painting with these older ladies at the trane awards. Old miss Karen thought I was your mom! Then Barbara was like see Karen! We laughed at this way too hard. The wine may have helped a bit lol. We still have our little signs we made! A cherished memory that will never be forgotten! Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. ...We will miss you and love you always.

I don’t even know which memory to start with, from Las vegas having the time of our life on ours girls trip, to the many late summer nights sitting in the pool, drinking & talking away for hours about our lives, the lake trip where you made me get on the boat with you, going to the gym to work out a long day, to going to Dan’s every Thirsty Thursday, to spending the weekend together when the guys would go outta town for work. She was so fun to be around, she was one in a millon. I will forever cherish you & out memories. I love you so much sara. I know your up there smiling & hold sweet Colton. ♥️ Rest Easy beautiful Angel.

God was ready for you to come home but none of us were prepared for it. I’m so thankful for all the memories we shared. I hope you lit heaven up when you arrive the same way you lit a room. I can only imagine how you look as an angel. Reunited with Colton again.
I’ll treasure every text, memory, picture, that I have of you. It’s unfair that your gone, this world lost a beautiful soul. This isn’t goodbye, only see you again. Our hearts couldn’t take a goodbye. I love you so much. Save a spot for the Murphy’s

So many words I could say and yet there would never be enough to describe the beautiful Sara. I knew her from the time she was an adventurous little girl still smiling and laughing as she did as the strong vivacious woman we knew today. She is love anyone who knew her could connect and feel loved by her, she had a way of always making you feel that way. I will forever miss you girl love you.
