Dear Family of Sarah’s: We share with you in the loss of Sarah who we really enjoyed seeing at church along with many of you. We enjoyed Grandparent’s Day when she stood tall when asked if there were any great, great grandparents. She will be missed but she is home now with all those who have gone before her and now she is free of her old body which just wore out. Blessings on those of you who were her care givers because you persisted when it was no doubt hard to do. In Christ’s love, Carl and Joyce.
