I loved Sara very much. I cherish all those memories we had at the house. Kendra and her and i had so many laughs. My parents Ken and Karen loved her so much and truly enjoyed every spiritual conversation with her. She had many beautiful spiritual qualities. Now she is in Jehovah God memory. The best place to be. She was faithful and will now be resurrected in the Paradise which is now so close. Can't wait to hug her again. Love from Anna and Ken and Karen
