Sara was a dear friend of ours from Grace Church. After Sara moved to Poplar Run she asked if we could pick her up and take her to church on a Sunday morning. What a delight that was. She always had interesting stories to tell. The last time I talked to Sara she said she wanted the isolation to end so she could get back to church. We will truly miss Sara. Please accept our deepest heart-felt sympathy.
