Class of 55. We love you Sarah. Feb 14 2022 4:32 AM

Mrs. Sarah was an amazing, sweet and wonderful woman. Her granddaughter Sarah and I are best friends and I would always go to Mrs. Sarah's home with Sarah. She has always welcomed me into her home and she always cooked her best casseroles and hurricane cake for me. I am so sorry for the loss of Mrs. Sarah and I pray the Lord wraps his arms around the family and comforts you all.
