“Our family, friends, church, neighbors, Bullard schools, my employer Trane, and the whole Bullard community have shown amazing support during Sara’s illness and after her passing. We always knew we moved to a great place but past 10 months have taught how truly exceptional place this is. I don’t have words to express my gratitude. All I can say is thank you for all your support and for being there for us. Sara was at peace and had no fear in the end because she knew heaven was waiting for her and that we would be OK with the wonderful people around us.” --- Kari Terho
