Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Tricia and Ricky, While I didn't have an opportunity to get to know your mom very well…….I was always amazed at the strength she had while fighting her cancer battle. Others have posted such warm notes of their relationship with her, she must truely have been a kind sole. I wish you peace now with the knowledge she is no longer in pain and she has left a beautiful legacy in her loving family.Love,Galyn and Jimmy

  2. I absolutely loved Mrs. Sarah! She came to work for me in June of 2006 and we became close in an instant. I loved the way she was such a Christian, faith filled woman but could still call a spade a spade. She was a fun person to be around and I will miss her dearly….

  3. I am so sad to hear of Sarah's passing. I always thought of her like an older sister when I was growing up and hanging around with Nadine in High School. And I am sure she thought of me like a pesty younger one always there, and watching her and Sharon getting ready to go out to the Bamboo Club. I will never forget her and Mathew's wedding–It was beautiful, and then her children Tricia and Mark–so cute, like my own nieces and nephews, now they are grown with their own families..I have watched her grandson Colby grow up, thru his picture in the paper, as he is learning to cook jambalaya at the Cajun French Music Festival. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. much love, Gail Fralick and I know my mom sends her love also–Juanita Fralick

  4. I had the pleasure of working with Sarah at The Clinic. She was always so upbeat and positive, even when I am sure she was not feeling her best. She talked about her grandkids all of the time she was so proud of each every one of them. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  5. I met Sarah when she came to work at The Clinic. I have some many wonderful memories of her and her laugh and her stories. There was a considerable age difference between us but we had so much fun sharing in each others lives. She helped me plan a trip to Las Vegas when i turned 30. She will always remain in my heart as one of those people you just had to know. I feel truly blessed to have known her.

  6. I remember Sarah from when I was a very young girl … and they lived down the country road from us. Miss Lillie and my grandmother were very good friends. After they moved to Lake Charles, I remember going to visit them when we went to shop at the mall. For about the past ten years, I would often see Sarah at church and at the local grocery store … once I re-introduced myself, she always spoke and asked about my family. I will miss her sweet smile and friendly chatter. (To Miss Lillie, I know my Maw-Maw Hoppe is watching over you; she loved you.)

  7. Matthew and FamilyWe are so sorry to hear about Sarah. Just want you all to know that we only have good memories of Sarah.We hope your good memories will get you all thru this .Jay Lois Douget

  8. Mrs. Sarah always had open arms to everyone no matter who you were. She would always listen to what ever you had to say and always had a story of her own to share. She was the most beautiful, caring, thoughtful, and kindest person I have even been lucky enough to know. I am very sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you all.

  9. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. I have great memories of Sarah that I will treasure forever. We always had a great time when we were all together (Vegas buddy). Love, Evelyn Prejean

  10. Sarah was such a special person.we worked together at the Clinic.When she started working there she really looked familiar. As women do, we started talking about our families and found out Mark and my son Michael were friends. Mark has his mothers eyes and that was why she looked so familiar. Mark was always at our house. As we became friends, she expressed how proud she was of Mark and Trisha. I know she adored her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed. you all are in my prayers.

  11. what can i say about this beautiful woman that everyone doesnt know already, but she was my shoulder when my mother had cancer and always prayed for her. and this beautiful woman showed up at the funeral home to be with me. i will really miss her and her laughter. she was always smiling and so thoughtful to all of us at work. i am blessed to have known such a beautiful wonderful person.
