Our prayers go out to Roman and all of Sara’s family. I had the pleasure of knowing Sara during high school and the first thing I noticed was her smile and how she greeted everyone with a big smile. Years later when we reconnected for our class reunions we were all so happy to have that smile greeting us again. Sara will be dearly missed by all those who were so blessed to know her.

Dear Sara, you were my classmate, and friend. We were Birthday buddies having our special day in January and enjoyed much of the same music. I loved that we ( our classmates) were able to reconnect with you after much searching. I think we called every Urias family in San Antonio for several years. I loved the special bond between you and Roman. You remain in our hearts Rest In Peace my friend

Sara, your death has really hit me hard. What I'm feeling now is hard to put into words. I have lost a long time school mate and friend. I will miss your smile and your laugh, recalling old times, especially our BSA get together at the coast, remembering all of us " howling at the moon". Thanks Sara for the great memories and friendship we shared. Until we see each other again. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Our thoughts & prayers, have been with since Tony & I first learned of Tia Sara's illness and more so now! I'm sorry to be meeting you & family under these circumstances. However from the stories I've heard i truely wish i could have met what seems to me an amazingly wonderful caring & loyal wife & mother, who im told had the biggest heart filled with love and understanding for her family & others! If i were to say she was one of a kind feels like an understatement to the extrtotadinary woman & blessing to have the privilege of knowing her! I wish i could have been blessed enough to meet her personally but she still lives on in the hearts of you, your childern, grandchildren and family even though she is watching from above! If theres anything Tony or I can do besides continued prayers now and in future please reach out. It kinda goes without saying you have one of the most amazing families ive have the privilege of getting to know and brother Paw Paw Gabe to lean on. He has showed me more understanding and feeling as if i belong and fit in than i ever could have hoped for and i believe he learned by example from you on being that kinda man!
🕆Sincerely, Tony, Melissa & kids JaLynn & River

I feel extremely blessed to have met Sara as freshmen in high school. She was a friend to all and she never had an unkind word about anyone. My fondest memory of Sara is of her in her band uniform - she was quite the musician. She has left a legacy of love for her husband, family and friends. My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to you, Roman, and your family. I know she leaves a huge hole in your heart. Your legacy, in part, will be the loving way you cared for your Sara during her illness.

Dear Roman and Family,
It was a blessing to be able to bring the Eucharist to Sara to nourish her in her final journey back to God. Please accept our deepest condolences as you continue your own journey without her. She was a sweet soul. May she rest in peace in the arms of Jesus.
