Since I didn’t get my official goodbye- this is it. It’s weird you are gone. You meant so much to so many people within so many circles of your life. You should be proud of yourself. All my life I worked hard to make you proud - you pushed me to be the best that I could be and I thank you for that. I also learned to be a bit more OCD because of you. Lol
Also thank you for loving my wife and son in your own Grandma Lomax way! I wish you could have met him in person. He would have loved you!

I hope you are finally able to play your perfect round of golf and playing with all the smooshed face Pekingese where you are!

I love you!

Sara was an especially kind person. When I joined Sim Park Women’s GC, Sara was always so willing to answer any question I had. I also volunteered at Salvation Army at Sara’s invitation where she kept things well organized for us.
I will miss seeing Sara occasionally on a Friday night at DeFazio’s!

I met Sara at one of the many state tournaments we attended. She was always so friendly and fun to be with. I will miss seeing her smiling face. May your treasured memories help you through this time of sorrow.

Sara and I played many rounds of golf together, both at Sim Park and at state tournaments. She was a great member of our state golf association, KWGA, and gave many years of service to that organization. I hope you will get to see the tribute that was in the Central Links Golf association newsletter. (That is the name of our new state organization)
Sara helped me so much when I attempted to take over one of the jobs she had in KWGA. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by many.

Sara was a golfing buddy at Sim Park. Always ready to lend a word of encouragement to new people to the game and a great competitor. She was a great volunteer both in the golf world and at the Salvation Army where she directed a crew of us in data input at Christmas time. She will be missed by many.

I was the handicap director for Kansas Women’s golf association assuming that role when Sara moved full time into the GHIN Management. That was when I really got to know Sara. She was so helpful and organized!! Such a wonderful mentor and person. I am so sorry for your loss... she will be fondly remembered by many of her golf associates through the years.
