    I first met Sabine at Parker Hannifin but as the years went on, I would see her working at different restaurants. She always had a positive attitude and a kind word for Chad and I. She loved watching The Amazing Race like I do and we would chat about what teams we liked or disliked. She was a very hard worker and never complained. I am saddened by her death and extend my sympathy and prayers to her family. May God strengthen you during this difficult time. She will be missed!

    To Sabine’s family:- I was very surprised to hear that she had passed, let alone sick. I would enjoy talking with her at the OUR TABLE restaurant in Otsego when she worked their part-time. She was a real go-getter, and we would talk about Germany. I was stationed their in 1970 in the Air Force. She was also well liked by many of the other veterans from Legion Post 84 that stopped in their often. She will be sorely missed by everyone. Sabina– GOD BLESS YOU, and God Bless your entire family. Remember- she is not really gone, as long as she is remembered.
