I will forever cherish the memories, of Aunt Sarah, when I was young. I remember the wonderful times I had when I would go visit her. You've earned your Angel wings. We miss you & we love you.

I'm very grateful to Sarah that she is one of the founders of our local chapter of the Texas Association of Health Underwriters. This organization has been a critical resource to keep the Agents/Brokers in East Texas up to date and relevant in this industry. Thank you, Sarah! Your legacy lives on and is much appreciated.

So very sorry to hear of your passing. You will be missed. Aunt Sarah.
