Dear Knepfle family, my sincere sympathy to you. Sara has been in my heart since my family (Renders) moved into the nighborhood 1960. Sara was my second mother as a child and a model of motherhood. My respect is everlasting and I know she still prays for all. Rest in Peace Sara Christie Render Hau

I guess mom and I only had one dust up in 47 years around this family. I once stated, " I grew up on beans, cornbread and fried potato's". She told me, "you can't live on that". I said "well I seem to be doing all right". Five years later, she sent me a small article out of the newspaper. It stated the combination of those items produced the same proteins as red meat. She apologized for doubting me. Integrity always. She never failed to send me a hand made birthday card and dollar. She always called me on veterans day and told me how much she appreciated my service. She was truly one of the best of the best and I will miss her always. I love mom. Thanks for being part of my life. Jim Washburn

Thank you mom for all the special times together and the example of love with which you led your life. We know we are your favorites, because you told us so many times. You were such a help to us while our children were young and we were happy to be of help to you and dad as time went by. We were there for each other whether it was to get you out of the broken locked bathroom, pick dad up off the floor or to just spend time together playing cards, dominoes or any other games together (even if you ended up third best). Whose turn is it? Your turn. You are first best now and forever! You won! We love you more than tongue can tell. Carolyn & Jim
