    To Uncle Pete and family. So sorry to here about the passing of Aunt Sarah. She was a beautiful and wonderful person and would do anything for anybody. Loved her laugh and smile. I remember when I was younger and at their house she would say some of the silliest things that had is all laughing. Debbie and I went and visited them when I noticed they had moved to Peoria. Had a long wonderful visit and remembering things from the past. A very enjoyable day. She is with God now and he will take care of her. My deepest condolences to Uncle Pete and family. She will be missed.
