Annie and Miles,

So very sorry to hear of Sarah's passing. She and Tom were such wonderful members at St. Giles, and Bert and I loved her dearly. Please know that you are in my prayers and I know there will be glory in heaven with her beautiful smile and singing the praises to God. Love to you both!

My name is Brad Merrill and I worked at Elmcroft at Northridge as a physical therapist and Sarah was one of my patients. I loved working with her as she was so sweet and kind. I will always remember how much she loved birds and my wife and I have a hummingbird letter opener that she gave me on display on our kitchen wall. I think of her every time I see it. God bless her and her two devoted and loving children, Miles and Annie. I will never forget you all. I know Sarah is in heaven surrounded by beautiful birds singing.

I will miss Sarah so very much. She was one of the last links to my parents. I have lovely thoughts of her being reunited with Tommy in heaven. My love to Annie and Miles...
