Nancy and I attended grades 1-12 and college together. Beth the big sister was always around ready to give advice. She was such a caring person and dedicated to her family. Nancy and Lynn, I know you will miss her so much. Gloria Matthews

The Sayre family lived in my neighborhood growing up. I babysat for Bethanna, Charles and Daniel for many years. Beth was in many ways like a second Mother to me. I loved her very much and will think of her very often. Much love to Dr. Sayre, Bethanna, Charles and Daniel. In my thoughts and prayers. Much love.
