    I worked with Sarah for many years at Experience Works and am so sorry for your loss. Her obituary is absolutely beautiful and I can contest that she loved her boys and family more than anything. You were her life and I felt at that time as if I knew all of you personally. You are so correct in saying she never met a stranger. She welcomed me with open arms on my first day of work and was such a pleasure to work with! I loved her with all my heart and am so sorry for all of you. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers and I’m sorry I was unable to come to the funeral home.
