  1. Happy Birthday, Mom! We love and miss you so much!! We know you are celebrating with Jesus and the Angels!

  2. May God guide you Sadie safely home to him and may God embrace your family and bring peace to them. Rest in peace. Condolences and continued prayers🙏🏼

  3. We all thought you’d recover from your illness…and it progressed so quickly…that it’s hard to believe that you are now gone from us.
    I am happy, though, that you are now safe & secure and in your eternal home with Jesus. I’ve known & loved you as my second Mom since I was a teenager. You showed me the importance of family, you were such a loving & generous Grandma to my Children, and you raised a wonderful Son who has been my beloved husband for 25 years… You taught me how to be a great Mom and your light-hearted spirit and your sense of humor was so contagious! We had many fun adventures together, didn’t we? You were the kind of person that made everyone around you feel comfortable, special, loved and cared for. You spread love around everywhere you went and you will be dearly missed by the multitudes of people whose lives you touched. I thank the Lord that you were able to be a significant part of my life.
    I love you, Sadie.

    14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
