Having only met your mother once or twice, it was evident she was the light of your family. May the flame of her candle continue to burn in all of you. God bless.

I really enjoyed the few occasions we spent together surrounded by Paul, Kristin and most especially sweet Aubrey. Your "light" will stay with me and I will miss you. I wish we could have had so many more years to get to know one another better, it would have been an awesome gift.
Love, Lynette

Emile and Tim,
So sorry for the loss of Mom. She was a great mother and most of all a lovable and caring person to all that she came in to contact with. She was my Aunt but also my best friend. I will miss those daily phone calls but I pray those memorable moments we have of her, will help ease the pain at this trying time in our lives. RIP, Sara. You are loved!
