Ann, Brad and all the family: It was such a delight knowing your mother. Sarah was a sweet neighbor, always had a smile and time to chat. After she became a forgetful it would make me smile when she would ask me to remind her of where I lived and worked. When I mentioned my parents, she had instant recall! Sarah is the last of my parents close friends who lived on Sea Oats Trail. They were a great group of couples who spent their retirement years as neighbors. I will always have fond memories of Sarah Housel and her cat! Your mother was a lovely woman, Ann. My love to all, Morgan.

Ann and family, Ms. Housel was so super sweet and I am thankful for the years I was able to work with her both as a professional and a friend. Reassuring her that everything was ok was actually rewarding to me. I am also grateful to have met her family and the terrific legacy she leaves behind.
