Our deepest sympathy to the Frcike family. We remember Sara as a cheerful, friendly person and she will be missed. We had fun during the JSL Follies when I first got to know her.

Dearest Wayne, Joanne and Dan,

So terribly sorry for your loss. Sarah was beautiful, both inside and out, in every sense of the word. This world can ill afford the shattering loss of such goodness, but it does live on in each of you. Sarah was so proud of you - and rightfully so. May you find comfort in knowing she is surely among the angels.
Sending love and deepest sympathy,

Sara was a lovely mother , a gracious lady, a wonderful wife and relied upon her Lord. I became acquainted with Sara when her Lizzie had a tragic accident. Sara showed love, patience, and strength during this most difficult of times. The smile on her face in the picture for this obituary shows that she was able to move on here and have joyful times again. However, now she can transition to the place nearer to her beautiful Lizzie beside the angels and the Lord.

Dear Joanne, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother. I would have loved to have known and enjoyed her...however, her attributes have been passed down to you, which Andy and I have indeed experienced in knowing you. I Praise the Lord along with you and your Family though, that your wonderful Mother is Home with Jesus. I am keeping you and yours in Prayer. Much Love.....

Sara was such a special woman of God. I enjoyed our friendship so much. She was caring, positive, and loved serving Jesus. She spent special time golfing with my son, Keith and letting him drive some of her high end cars. I am thankful for all the memories I have of her, Wayne, Joanne, and Dan. Ward and I will continue to pray for all of you.

Sara was such a fun loving person. I really enjoyed the many evenings my wife and I spent in her and Wayne's small group Bible Study. I will always cherish the memories I have of her.

Wayne, Joanne and Danny, YS and I are so sorry to be reading this. She was such a good friend when we came to WNY 50 years ago, and is often in our conversations. There will be a memorial Mass offered here in Durham and trust you are all at peace. The Alrutz family
