Sarah was certainly a one-of-a-kind who loved her family and will be missed. My children loved her so much and will miss her terribly. She always welcomed me into her home and made me feel welcome. The last time I saw her was not long ago. She knew her time on Earth was limited but only expressed how much she loved her family with tears in her eyes while holding my arms firmly and gazing into my eyes. One thing can be said about Sarah, if she said something, she meant it. She was sassy and social but loved dearly. Her home is full of so many that are missing her now but will carry on her memories with all of the precious babies running around. I'm fortunate for having known her and having her great grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with the family but my, what a celebration she must be having now.

Sarah - a loyal, kind, loving, and sometimes witty friend and cousin whom we have shared so many memories with over so many years. Alabama just won't be the same without you. We will miss you and the many phone conversations, Dale especially will, you and him would have many laughs reminiscing about your childhoods and the family genealogy you shared. Now those times are gone.

But for sure those memories will always remain. Love you Sarah.

Memory of homemade icecream, shopping, okra potatoes and tomatoes fried to perfection. My favorite we laughed often about; took sarah to do a close mri in Birmingham...the tech helped her on the table, he walked out started the process...she was out of the room and somewhat dressed before he could catch up to her, in the waiting room where she said nope can't do it.... 2 days later, she finally had the mri it was open, they gave her meds to keep her calm and in the room. Will miss you, love you and thank you ... Roben
