I knew Sadie from Providence. For years we dropped our kids off at daycare together and chatted in the small way that you take for granted. Just a few weeks ago we sat together at the band concert and chatted about the rapid growth of our kids, their love of the band teacher and other small things. I always enjoyed our brief moments of connection. I am truly sorry to learn she was in the accident. I am praying for your whole family.

I did not know Sadie very well but I know Coach spoke of her often and how much he loved her and his growing family. It was obvious how loved she is. I know she will be missed. My heart and prayers go to her family. We love you!
