Grandma Sadie was the most kind and giving lady who I was honored to know. She never worried about herself, only others who she knew and so kindly loved. She will be missed. Special prayers for her daughter, Tina (Greg Michalski) who has been left with beautiful memories, but a heavy heart. Her grandchildren are also very saddened by this loss.
Eternal rest grant upon her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest In Peace. Amen
