  1. My heartfelt condolences and sympathy to all. Although I only knew Sarah for a short time her kindness and warm-heartedness is something that I will always remember. With love…

  2. To the Family of Sarah T. Meese, My family and I are very sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Although you don’t know us personally, we certainly understand that the loss of a loved one can take its toll on your mental, physical, emotional, and most importantly, your spiritual health. The words of comfort found in the Bible can help us to cope with the loss of a dear one. There is one scripture that stands to give us hope. In the Bible book of John, chapter 5 and verse 28, Jesus said, ‘Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out.’ This hope has allowed millions of families, including my own, to cope with the feelings of sadness and even guilt that one may struggle with after losing a loved one in death. Please feel free to email me if you’d like to receive comforting Bible based literature. Sincerely, Autumn Prince

  3. When we came to Torrance to see Ida and Lorraine, we always looked forward to seeing Sarah and Art and enjoyed visiting with them. Prayers are with you all. God Bless Loraine”s Aunt Doris and Uncle Bill

  4. Dear Mom, I miss you so much and my heart will never feel whole again. I know my life will never be the same without you. I will never be able to hear your voice, see your beautiful smile, kiss your check or put my arms around you. I will miss you at every special holiday. I will miss being able to send you Mother’s Day cards and birthday cards. I will miss getting my birthday card from you. I’m so glad that I’ve kept all the wonderful cards you sent to me over the years. You were the best Mom in the world and I am so lucky that I am your daughter. I will love you forever and wish I could be with you. Your loving Daughter, Sharon
