"Sara was a wonderful spirit, always full of life and wanting to do things. She loved to dance and go out to eat. So much fun! Now she's earned her wings and will be up there watching over us. Rest in peace my friend. Celia Handwohl"

"Sarah, my sweet and precious friend is enjoying the light of heaven again tonight and her kind and gentle spirit will be sorely missed here on earth. It was an inspiration to see the loving marriage she and Steve have had. One of the strongest I've ever seen. She honored God in all she did and Dale and I am truly thankful for having known her and Steve both. "

"Steve and Sarah were the first friends I made when I moved to Florida. They treated me like a son and they became part of my family. Sarah was the sweetest kindest most caring person, she showed love towards my young Sons and my family. I shall miss her immensely.. Love you always."
