My condolences to the family of Sarah. You were a great employee and had great discussions. You were smart beyond your age at that time. I know your family will definitely miss their daughter and mother.
I'm shocked and saddened to hear about Sarah's passing. My heartfelt thoughts and sincere prayers to the family. Grace and I were friends in junior high, and high school. I remember all the red-headed girls and dad, and spent time at Grace's house. Sarah was the "tag-a-long little sister" that I remember always making me laugh. She was gifted in words, which I delighted in watching she and Grace engage in banter. As an only child, their wit and tiffs were so entertaining. I remember Sarah as wicked smart, witty and talented. Such a beautiful light, my deepest sympathies.
I am truly sorry for your loss. Sarah was a kind person. I really had the opportunity to get to know her while life guarding at the Batesville Country Club in the summers after high school. Prayers for you.

I’m truly heartbroken over Sarah’s passing. I cherished her friendship during my childhood years. We rode the band bus to every away game in adjacent seats and laughed hysterically until Sarah was giggle snorting. I will always remember her wicked sense of humor, her laugh and her compassion and kindness. She was a very good friend and gave me permission to just be myself around her. I’m sincerely sorry for your tragic loss. My condolences to the family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Godspeed Sarah.
