    We were saddened to read of Sarah's passing, she was such a great friend to my mom, Bessie. When we would try to call mom and the lines were busy for an hour, we would say she's talking to Sarah and laugh. She was a great lady, I remember her as a young child growing up on Mulberry Street, some of my best memories took place there. Sarah had an ever present smile. I still miss my mom so very much, but I say we weep for us, because they are gone from our presence, they are fine where they are. We suffer the pain of separation only once, when we next see them it is for eternity. Big heart hugs to all of you and our sincere condolences.
