  1. Although I wasn’t around Ms. Sarah except on visits to Atlanta to see my cousin, Searcy Garrison, I felt a genuine connection with her. It only took that small amount of time to know that she was quite a lady, Searcy was a special cousin whom I loved dearly, and to me that meant that Ms. Sarah was special as well. She lived a rich life and touched a lot of people; her legacy will long be felt. Condolences to the family and friends who will miss her in the days ahead but will see her again one day.

  2. Condolences and love to family and friends.
    What a wonderful and loving lady to her family and certainly this friend. Until we are all together again, we know not what tomorrow holds, but we know Who holds tomorrow.
