When we lose someone so special in our lives it is so very hard to let them go, how loved they are is all we want them to know. Some memories will be happy, some will be sad, some days will be good, others may be bad. We must remember to treasure all of the memories Sara has given to us to share, and to fight the feeling that her life was to short and not fair. God gave her to us for a while, he said, "Love my daughter, my child, and glory in her smile. " Now she is home in his Kingdom, where she is embraced with peace, love and his glorious Angels hum...

Donna and Family,

I am so incredibly sorry for the loss of Sara. Donna, it was during the time that you helped take care of my grandparents that I was able to get to know you and learn how much your family means to you. You always spoke so highly of your children and talked about how much you loved them and enjoyed spending time with them. Sara will be with you always! You guys are in my thoughts and prayers!
