Please accept my heartfelt condolences to your family. My best childhood memories were playing baseball in your backyard. Your home was a refuge in many ways. Steve was my closest friend as a child but I enjoyed the company of all the brothers. I knew Robert graduated from the Naval Academy, what a fine accomplishment! (He always wanted to play Army..) Sam has a big heart and was always a joy with a sweet nature, also the best athlete in the neighborhood. I admired Mr. Sager’s devotion to family and he always had my respect. Best regards to all.

Remembering the Sagers; The night Sam bit through his tongue. Becky trying to ride a bike that had a flat tire ( she went over the handle bars) The neighbor boy who told Bob” man, you Did break your leg”. Bob thought it was funny. Beck knew Bob was going to be ok when he could see the humor. We kept Sabrarina so she wouldn’t have to go to the kennel while they went on vacation. We only had to keep her on a leash one day—she was at home playing with our kids remember our dog Bullet? Remember finding the drowned raccoon on the farm? “We found a Mickey Mouse”! Becky was 81/2 months pregnant w/ Sam—-she started laughing so hard she tipped a chair over backwards—-the window sill caught her. Patty Hockett decided she’d better take you all home before we had to deliver a baby. Ha! I’m writing down some of these memories,but knew I couldn’t get it there before the service. I’m not very good w/ ipad so please excuse if there are some repeats. Have tried to contact Reba and Polly, but haven’t been able Will be thinking of you tomorrow. Love to all. Ruthie

Dear Bob, Steve, Robert, and Sam, I have so many wonderful memories of Becky, and of your family. We had some good times. Please send me your addresses and phone numbers so I can keep in contact with you. I have a letter that I started writing her before Christmas. I’ve had some health problems, and didn’t ever get back to it. I’ll finish it and send it to you. We loved talking to one another on the phone. Talked until you mom was worn out. Ha! I send my love Hope your memories will help you through this difficult time. Ruthie

Becky and I met at OBU and were partners in crime making “ burning bushes” in our cooking class. Becky and Bob had 3 little boys when they moved to Tulsa—-Wayne and I had 2boys The 5 of them played well together. Becky and I often babysat for one another. Don’t remember them giving us any trouble—-just give them a toasted Velveeta cheese sandwich and send them outside to play. Velveeta burns easily——we pulled the burnt top off—- they scarfed it. . Becky had started. Cross-stitching a bed spread—-was depressed because Bob had estimated it would take her 7 years to finish it. I took the side panels to do for her. I had them finished in a couple of weeks. She turned them over and saw all the little straight marks. She had been crossing each stitch at a time. She was a home-ec teacher, but no one had ever shown her to go all one way, then come back down. Only time I remember me showing her how to do something. Remembering her coming to my house when Steve was in 1st grade—-she was sobbing I thought something terrible had happened. She had planned to go help him through the cafeteria line the
first day. He said, “oh mom I can do that by myself “. She sobbed, “ only 6 , and he doesn’t need me!”
