Sarah was a first cousin to my grandfather, Fred Bailey. I only met her four years ago, but loved her from the beginning. She was such a delightful and informed lady. I loved to hear her stories from the past. I"m sure she is at peace with God and family members. She will not be forgotten.

Please accept my thoughts and prayers in your time of grief. I feel fortunate to have met Sara at Bailey family reunions over the past few years, and I appreciate her helping me know more about her uncle and my Great Grandfather Edward W. Bailey. She "sparkled" when she recalled those childhood memories.
