Walt & Anna, we just heard about Sara’s death and were shocked! We want to tell you how much we enjoyed knowing you all at the NWS barn even though there were anxieties dealing with some of the people there. Sarah always made me laugh and enjoy the day by being around her. Beau could not have had better care from all of you and we were all so fortunate to have interacted with your family. Our hearts and prayers will be for your family. Nancy & Paul Miller
