  1. Hal, Bill & Jerry I am so sorry for your loss. Sarah was a very kind person. She was very quite, but when you got to know her she was a pretty fun person to be around. I still cherish a picture that she painted for me when we use to run around. She has been in my thoughts for many memories from the past and I have thought about her often. My condolences to the whole family, take care and be well. My prayers are with you!

  5. Dearest Judi, Becca, Hal, Bill and Jerry. It has been many years since our paths crossed and I hope you know that my heart was truly aching when I read my long lost dearest friend Sage had left this earthly domain. My fondest childhood and life memories are of us sharing our life experiences and watching Sean and Jodi grow in their early years. We had many wonderful years together. Please know my prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Kathy

  6. Judi,

    I just ran across your sister’s obit when I was searching for your husband’s. I had no idea that she had died. I’m so sorry.
