Sadie was a loving mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to her family and God. She was the perfect combination of kindness and strength. Sadie enjoyed country and gospel music and watching westerns on TV. As most of us can relate, her guilty pleasure was yummy sweets. Her family loves her more than words can say. We have peace knowing she is walking with our Heavenly Father.
