  • With both of us having worked with Sara we have heard many heart warming stories about her Grandmother. We never met Edna but know she was a very important part of Sara’s life and will be greatly missed. It blesses our heart to know that she loved the Lord and is now safely home with Him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sara and the family that soon the sadness will be replaced by the joy of the memories you have of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
