  1. My favorite memory of Sarah is eating strawberries out of her garden with Danny Joe, thinking she couldn’t see us. Beautiful soul.

    Our condolences on your loss. Tammy & Ray

  2. Our sympathy to all the Poe family. Sarah was an amazing woman, a dear friend to my mother and to so many others through the years. She will certainly leave a void in her family and the community.

  4. Raymond,
    I am so sorry to hear that your mother passed away. Dianne let me know as I don’t get a paper and live too far away to hear otherwise. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My dad told me once that it’s tough to lose your dad, but when your mother dies, a part of you dies as well. He was so right.
    Thinking of you,
    Cassie Eigenmann

  5. What a grand photo of such a beautiful lady. My sincere condolences to all family members hurting from this loss. All of the years you were blessed with her presence in your lives – I am sure each of you have your own special memories that will continue to be passed on to your little ones. May God Bless all of you with His Peace.

  6. My heartfelt condolences to the Poe Family. You have lost a great treasure. I have many fond memories of your Mother. You are all in my heart and prayers. Love, Joye

  7. We are saddened to learn of your Mothers passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Poe family.
