She will be greatly missed. Love you! Paula Empkey, June 23, 2022 Robin, Sarita and all the family I am so sorry to hear about Sarah. She was the ultimate hostess, cook, and taught me so much when I was getting married and having babies. I can just see her answering the front door in her apron saying come in, come in. She will be so missed and we love you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with both you, Uncle Don and all of your family. Sincerely, James James Pettus, June 21, 2022 So very sorry to hear of your moms passing.
