    Condolences on the death of Sr. Sadie. She was a beautiful person and loving to all. She and Sr. Anna Pottie were good friends. I was happy to have a visit with her at the time of Sr. Anna’s funeral. She looked peaceful and ready to meet the Lord. May she know the fullness of joy and peace in the communion of saints.

    I met Sadie when I entered: She and Archie made such delicious rolls! I never lived with her in the same house, but a couple of years ago I spent about six weeks in Caritas. Sadie was there but she was having trouble remembering. I spent some of my time with Sadie, talking to her, singing hymns in the evening in the chapel, helping her with her meals. We had great fun and I will always treasure that time.
