  1. I am sorry to hear about Sarah. I hope she had a time of peace at home. I enjoyed working with her in therapy, and she was a bright spot to her roommates Doshia and Lois. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
    The thought that came to me was the song we sang at Barbara Holcombe’s… In the Sweet By and By….
    My family and I hope to see you soon.
