Dear George and Jordan, and all the family,

We know you are deep in grief, and are praying for you constantly. Our hearts ache for you all. We loved Sara. She was one of the kindest, most gentle, loving women we ever knew. Her deep faith in God was known by all. She just radiated the love of Christ! We hope you are comforted, as we are, by God's promises that "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." We WILL see her again, our dear sister in Christ! We are celebrating that she is pain free now, with a brand new, glorified body in Heaven, with all her (and our) loved ones who were joyfully waiting for her. In the words of her beloved father, "we will see you here, there, or in the air"! We, your northern Vickery cousins, love you. God bless and keep you in His presence, comfort and love. - Donna (Vickery) Beltz
