    Laura, I was so saddened to hear of Sara’s passing. We passed many a great evening watching our boys (Mike) play football for LHS. Was really sorry that I missed seeing both of you at our reunion. Got mixed up on the days. Had conversed with Sara a little over Facebook and kept in touch through that. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Sara’s family. Knowing that we will see her again hopefully will bring some comfort. Until then, May God Bless all of you.

    Laura, Robyn, Mike, Matt and the entire family of Sara Reese:

    My wife and I were truly saddened to hear of the loss of our good friend Sara. Sara was a great lady and a dear, dear friend. Words can not express how much she will be missed. I worked with Sara at Menninger’s and at Bert Nash. She was a true friend and always watched out for me. She was like a mother, sister, and friend to me, all rolled up in one. My deepest condolences to the family. She spoke of you all often and most of you I have met. May God comfort you and watch over you during this difficult time. We will have you in our upmost thoughts and prayers.

    I was saddened to hear of Sara’s passing. I have fond memories our years growing up together on Emerald Drive. We climbed many trees, played many ballgames, and played hide and go seek in the dark, many nights, until our parents called us home….Oh the good old days.

    My deepest sympathy to Sara’s family, to Laura and to Rita and to your families. God bless you all.

    Laura, to you and all the family, I send my love and prayers! She is probably watching and making jokes right now, the spirit we all loved. Sorry she had so much to deal with but that only meant that God loved her so much he wanted to pay a lot of attention to her. Everyone will miss her but will still have her in our hearts and thoughts-Hugs to you, Carolyn and John
