    Sadie was an amazing lady. I’ve never met anyone like her. She was a friend to everyone she came in contact with. Beano was my client when I worked at Addus. I never felt like a stranger in her home. I felt a connection immediately. God blessed me with her friendship and her giving heart. She will be missed. My heart goes out to her family. I know there is a big void in her family with her gone. Prayers for all of you. 🙏
