    Scott, Leanne and Ann: we are beyond words having learned of the passing of Sarah. I have been off on med leave and tried my best to get to the services but couldn’t do it physically. Always a smile on Sarah’s face and a true gift to the world around her – a true testimonial of her exceptionally loving family. Having 2 daughters of our own, and one 29 years old, and having known your family for a very long time, Denise and I simply share with you that our hearts are heavy and our sadness is profound. Our love and prayers are plentiful at this beyond words difficult time in your lives. God bless each of you and the soul and spirit of Sarah. Sincerest regards, Mark and Denise.
