Expressing sympathy to the family with love. Ms. Sara was known to all by her faith and gentleness. Working in the medical profession, I never heard her complain no matter what trial they were going through. Her favorite phrase was "We're going to get through this". May God bless her loved ones & friends during this sorrowful time.

To the Simpson Family,
Sara was one of my best friends while we were in High School, visiting her home and she visited our home. She was such a special person, always putting other people's needs before her own. I always enjoyed seeing her at the Class Reunions and catching up on past events. She will be truly missed but knowing she is in her new home, she will enjoy renewing friendships and acquaintances of years past. Rest in peace.

To the Family, I am so sorry for your lost. I can only imagine how difficult this is to you. But I do know what a wonderful woman and sub she was to me. People come in our lives and make a great impact, and that what she did to me. I graduate class of 1988. So we got to see a lot of each other, or a Bilo's where I use to work. Know matter where we saw each other we always stop to check on one another. When I move I still get the herald, so when I open it today, she will be miss!!!
