Masters Family,

From the bottom of our hearts here at Providence Hospice, we are so very sorry for your loss. Thank you for allowing us to take care of her. It truly was an honor and a privilege sharing even the briefest of time with her and you all as family. We will continue to carry you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

My condolences to the Masters family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

Mrs, Masters was my favorite substitute teacher when I was principal at Cedar Ridge Elementary. She could handle any situation! I reconnected with here years later when I attended a SHSU alumni event with my husband. She attended several events and was always such fun. Condolences to her family.

Our deepest condolences to all of the Masters' family. It was such a pleasure having Sarah visit with us at Boar Creek Ranch in the past. We know she will be sorely missed.
