Although we spent the last year unable to visit with family due to the Covid19 pandemic that took Sayde our family spoke over the phone for the past year and felt the love she had for all of us. She had a sweet heart both figuratively and literally. She never hesitated to say I love you and even at her age never lost her sweet tooth. She would often request care packages that contained chocolate bars. She made friends most recently at Highland Health Care and enjoyed walking the halls and talking to people. Sayde never missed a chance to socialize at bingo and won many prizes. She will be truly missed by her family and friends. Rest peacefully Beloved Wife Dearest Mother and Grandmother.
