    Sarah was one of the most Christian women I ever knew! She was amazing in everything she did. She was so kind to my mom, Frances McSparin,, coming to get her for years to take her to church! If she couldn’t do it, for some reason, she made sure she had a way. She will be so very missed with her smiles and sense of humor! God is sure getting one wonderful lady!

    Great Auntie Sarah. I will Always cherish your kindness and the love you have shown to me. You will be missed by all who loved you here but I can so picture your laughing and dancing and Jesus hugging you. Until we are together again please give JESUS a hug for me and maybe if possible slip a good word in to. You did a wonderful job here on earth now it’s your time to rest with Jesus until we get there to. Coffee cake awaits. Will always hold love in my heart for you and yours.
    Your great niece. Tabitha Ratliff
