    We will never forget your visit with us when we moved into our new home in Wildwood. You and Mrs Wingate stopped by and welcomed us and invited us to church. You both were the 1 st In Wildwood to be our newly friends. You were such a blessing and an inspiration to us. We admired your love and faithfulness to God.

    You have been such an inspiration to me. I have always loved you. I also loved your no bake oatmeal cookies. I think of you ever time I make them. But I can never get them as good as yours. You will be soooo missed. Love you cindy

    My precious Aunt Sadie is walking the streets of Heaven with the love of her life, Uncle Ernest by her side. Her infectious laugh, which drew Uncle Ernest to seek her out at a park in Austin proclaiming to his friends, "I've got to go find that laugh and marry that girl!". I think that's how they met...as told to me awhile ago.
