So sorry for you guys loss. I have many fond memories of Mrs. Leftwich mostly feeding me left overs when I came to visit. She knew I was a eater and made sure I had plenty. She was a kind person and I know she will be sorely missed. God bless her soul.

Sincerely,

I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Sadako as well as Mr Leftwich because he knew my dad. I remember seeing him at Pillis Brothers in Salem. I knew Frank and Johnny thru school. I am praying for your family at this difficult time.

I do not specifically recall having been introduced to Sadako, but feel that I have met her by knowing the positive character of her son, Frank. I know that she was a strong influence on him, and his level of honor and commitment are a compliment to her. I am sorry for your loss. Peace be with you.

I know this sounds odd , but I actually never met Sadako. I never knew her. A friend of mine informed of her obituary because I have a friend whose name is also Sadako. However, I wish I met this Sadako also and knew her as a Japanese sister in Christ. From reading her obituary and messages from her friends, she must have been a good faithful servant to her Master, Jesus Christ. She must have been a caring friend to many. She must have fought a good fight, she has finished her race, and she kept her faith. (2 Timothy 4:7) May those who are still on this side of heaven strive to enter the rest which Sadako has entered, as our Savior Jesus Christ endured the cross, for the joy that was set before Him, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of God! (Hebrew 12:2) For the surviving grieving family members, I would like to give this verse. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit, you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)
From a sister in Christ who wishes to have met Sadako,
