    In memory and honor of Sarah. Your life and music inspired many of us to dig deeper to find the music within ourselves and live within the music of life. For what you gave and gifted us all, thank you. You are held in light and love.

    My grandparents lived across the street in Lenoir and my aunt Betty Turner was a childhood friend. She died the day before Sarah and I found so many writings about the Ingrams and her love for her playmate Sarah. References to the Christmas egg nog parties and the piano was always a big part of their lives. They are having a good time again in heaven. love to family especially sister Ann
