I am so very sorry for the Sauer family's loss. I have some fond memories of Mr. Sauer back when I was in High School. Just recently (at Manor Court) I got to introduce myself to him after many years. We caught each other up on our lives. What a wonderful conversation we had!!! He was still the same man I knew back when I was younger. God Bless! Tammy Tweedy Phoenix

My heart cries for your loss. I have such fond and precious memories of Bob and the entire family. Bob could make the best hush puppies that was ever made (I can't duplicate them) and even though he and Leland razzed me so much about my deer hunting experiences, I loved every moment of it. Bob will always have a place in my heart as a wonderful friend, and neighbor. My sincere condolences to you Pat, Jimmy and Cathy. Your friend, Linda Attig/Freeman
