Although formerly from Cannon City/Faribault, we are now living in Blue Earth, MN. My mother (Betty Thompson) still receives the Faribault Daily News, so that was how we learned of Sara's passing. Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathies are with Sara's loved ones. She was such a kind person and such a good neighbor. Her kindness in visiting my parents when my sister passed away will never be forgotten. Her devotion to her family and her deep love for all of them was clear. May God's strength, peace, and comfort uphold all who will miss her so deeply.
We talked of your mother often. May God be with you.
We pray for you on the loss of your Mom and Grandma. It was always so evident how much she loved you all and how proud she was of her boys. It was clear she lived for her grandchildren and loved them dearly. We all should be so blessed. May Christ comfort you until you meet again. Greg, toni & family
