Dear Pat, Jim & Family,
Thinking about you all as you celebrate Sarah’s life today. We will look back & remember all the good times we’ve had with Sarah in the 30 years we were lucky enough to know her. What great fun we all had on our “B & B tour” of VT. & N.H., before our move to France. That was our very first visit to Windham Hill Inn & our introduction to Stave puzzles! Then, while living in Paris, we welcomed Sarah, et. all, to the sites & cuisine of the city & country we were lucky enough to call home for several years. I also remember Sarah & I sharing our ability to throw away those valuable wildcards, in our early card playing times! I know I did get a bit better with time, though I have made the same mistake even in recent games! Most importantly, we’ll remember Sarah with love & joy in our hearts! Fondly, Norma & Dan
