    I got the pleasure a year or so ago to walk princess her dog. Which got me introduced to Sara. I fell in love with her easy going and lovely personality and which we would then talk about the birds and animals all around her beautiful property. We learned that my cousin actually had bought property right next door. I’m glad to have had the opportunity which led to meeting her and her princess. Thank you! My prayers to her family!

    I worked with Sara at Thiel until her retirement. She was our bright light at work. She was so sweet and very funny!!! *” We’ve got to get out of here”*!!! None of us have forgotten her and often recount fun times shared. Her dogs were always her pride and joy. She was so beautiful inside and out, and was kind as anyone I’ve ever met. Very saddened to hear of her passing. She was loved immensely by all of her co-workers. RIP Sara Lee
