Kim and family, just want you all to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sara was one of the sweetest and purest ladies that I have ever had the privilege to know and be part of my life. I loved her very much.... had a lot of good times and laughs with her. She definitely was one of a kind. My heart is broken that she is gone now, but I know that she is rejoicing in heaven right now. She was like a moma to so many of us, and to know her was a privilege. She sure will be missed by all of us that knew and loved her. Earth’s loss is Heaven’s gain..... If there is anything I can do for y’all , just let me know ❤️🙏.
