Memories Timeline


  1. What can I say? She is not suffering and is in a much better place, but she’ll always be missed. You were all so good to her and she was so proud of you all. I have so many happy and funny memories: insisting that she stop for a hamburger on the way to the hospital to have Brenda, the bad hair dye jobs, gaining a pound or two, her quick laughter and always upbeat personality. etc. I loved her, too, and will miss her.

  2. Bobby, Annette, Brenda and Laura,
    I was sad to hear about Sara’s homegoing, but we know that she is in a much better place and she is not in pain anymore!! We will all miss her, but if Jesus is in our hearts we will see her again.May the Lord watch over all of you.

    With deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mother. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you today and the days to come. The Bible says ‘To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord’. May you find peace in knowing that your Mom is safely home in the arms of Jesus.
    I remember your Mother as a very sweet and beautiful woman. That is what each of you took from her.. please know that I love you all. With love and prayers, Carolyn

  5. Annette, Bobby, and Brenda,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I so enjoyed being around Sara and being able to get to know you all. Sara was a very kind and loving lady. We had nicknames for each other for the longest time, that I will never forget. I would call her flossy and she would call me fluffy. I know you will miss her. I will miss her also. May God be with you all during this time.

  6. Bobby and Family. Sorry for your loss of your mom. All our thoughs and prayers go out to you all.

  7. Dear Bobby,

    Please accept our sincere sympathy in the death of your dear Mother Sara. She was a nice lady, and will be greatly missed.

    We both know how much it hurts to lose our parents.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Clifford & Frances Dillingham
