Dear Kay and Debbie,

All of us at Sarah Reed were so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. We will miss her greatly. She brought warmth, love and a sincere spirituality to all of our residents and staff.

Kay and Debbie, you were so faithful in caring for your mother. We will miss seeing both of you.

I speak for all of us at Sarah Reed when I sincerely say that we are a better place because your mother shared her faith and love with us. Her reward is in heaven. Our reward is that we knew and loved her!

Dear Kay & Susan and Debbie & Ron,

I am sorry sorry to hear of your beloved mother’s passing. She was a simply wonderful person, I remember her as always smiling and being so kind, also she was the person who taught me how to “twist.” Both of your parents are forever woven into the fabric of our 7th Street memories.

May mom’s memory, love and examples be a constant blessing.

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I know it’s hard to go through this pain, but I hope you may find comfort in knowing that God cares about how you feel and that He promises that “there is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:15) (1 Peter 5:7) Won’t that be wonderful to see our loved ones again! I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.
