To Sara's family--Bill and I met Sara and Bud when they put their house at 55 Asbury Avenue in Ocean City up for sale in 1991. We spent many hours together on a few occasions during that time. As a couple, we were so taken with both of them. Sara's gentle demeanor was endearing. Over the last many years, we have spoken of them often. We tell the people the story of the dining room chandelier that they insisted we keep. Often, I will call Bill "Bud" and he will call me "Sara". I remember running into Sara when she was attending one of her grandchild's school functions. I told her she was welcome any time but to be prepared because their grand old house has never been as clean since the day they entrusted the keys to us. Her housekeeping skills were a lot to live up to. We love this house and Sara and Bud will always be a part of its history and we cherish them as part of our memoies. We are sorry for your loss.
I received a note from Nancy today about Sara's passing and I am truly sorry for her loss.
Sara was my mother, Kathryn Thrasher's cousin. I lost my mom in 2004 and prior to that, her mind had been taken by Altzhiemers. Sara and I have been writing to each other ever since.
I will greatly miss her updates and I always admired how she kept up with her extended family's goings on.
I feel like she is was my last connection to my mother's family and I am very sad about that.
I plan to write to Nancy privately, to thank her for letting me know.
Again, I am so sorry to hear that my pen-pal is no longer with us.
My deepest sympathy to her her close family.
Sincerely, Valerie Wagner
