I just learned of Sara Lu's passing - I'm shocked and terribly saddened. I first met Sara in our freshman year, she was at the University of Texas, and I was at Texas A&M University. My cousin was a senior at UT and was in the same sorority. She had invited me over to show me around the campus and Austin life, so we set up a weekend late in the Spring semester of 1973. A few days before the weekend, my cousin called and said she had to go out of town, but if I still wanted to come, she would arrange a date, Sara Lu Eubanks. I told my cousin yeah, I would come over with a couple of friends, already coming over to hang out with their high school friends, now at UT. Sarah and I went out and I had a great time. We corresponded through the mail over the summer, but that faded to an end. Fast forward to the summer of 1975 before my senior year at A&M. I was going to summer school for a Civil Engineering course, only offered in the summer. One evening, I think Wednesday, because Thursday was "Lakeview" country dancing night, I went over to a dance place at North Gate to meet some friends. I walked in and headed to where we normally sat and someone spoke out "Don is that you?". It was Sara. Wow. I couldn't believe she recognized me. There was no doubt the girl was Sara, what an unforgettable presence she had. We exchanged a few words, how had things been going over the last few years, and from my standpoint, how did you find your way to A&M from UT. Later that summer we connected again and went out a time of two and again late in the fall semester.. We went out again several times over the course of the spring semester. We went to the Houston Live Stock and Rodeo in February 1976, where I met her parents. I graduated in May 1976 and ventured off to Lafayette, LA to begin my engineering career. Sara and I spoke on the phone a month or so after and that was the last contact. It's somewhat bizarre, how I stumbled upon Sara's passing. My next-door neighbors at our second home on Richland-Chambers Lake in Corsican, Tx have the last name "Bass" and I was recently trying to get their telephone number. I did a search on line and started to scroll down the various sites when I came across Sara Lu Eubanks Bass, and pulled up the obituary. It took me awhile to grasp it. My deepest sympathy goes out to Sara's parents Dr. Herb and Cindy, brother Herbert III (we met one time) and family, brother Jack and family and her surviving son, Cade and family. What an amazing person Sara Lu was.. Donald J. LaCour, Jr. Class of "76 Donald LaCour, January 31, 2021 i was so sorry to see that Sara had passed away. Although our parents had known each other for years, we didn't meet until we were at Texas A & M together. She was such a kind person with a sweet disposition. I regret that we drifted apart after our kids were born. My heart foes out to Sara's family. She will truly be missed. Jo Carole Ortman Long, September 27, 2020 A friend just informed me Sara passed away. This was heartbreaking. Sara and I met in 2nd grade. We were in Girl Scouts together, classes through elementary and remained friends through junior high. I remember slumber parties and teen parties at her home on the corner of Memorial and West Belt. I'm sorry your family is dealing with this loss. Cindy Hudson, September 14, 2020 My thoughts and prayers to Sara’s family and friends. I always admired how beautiful and sweet she was and as a classmate I am so sad to hear this news. May she Rest In Peace. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel

We had so many wonderful memories of her. She was truly a loving, caring, Godly woman. We didn’t realize that your dad had passed away too. We love you very much and are so sorry.
