Sarah J. Davis

So sorry to read of Sarah's passing. I remember her from the Cumberland Electric picnics years ago. Did not not she had passed. She was always the most pleasant of persons to talk to.

What a kind soul, she really did always have a smile. I've missed seeing her walk Brant Rd. We loved stopping and talking to her, she knew that area and reminisced about it fondly.
