Having been a long time friend of Sarah & her sister here in the city, Professor Cleaster Mims, I have numerous memories that could be shared. The one that stands out in my mind, among the many is as follows: Several of my grandchildren attended the Marva Collins Prep school, when it was active. Directed by Prof. Mims. Sarah & myself supported her sister with our time & personal resources. She helped with the children, including my grandson Bert (one of her favorites, smile). We both helped clean the school & helped to prepare for events at the school. I also had the privilege as a licensed Cosmetologist in the state of Ohio to service Sarah's hair & nails when she began to have medical problems & was forced to retire. I was privileged to see her a few weeks prior to her death. She is greatly missed. My condolences to her family, & continue to allow God to lead & guide you the rest of your lives. Rev. Sandara Dev

Mrs. Sarah Mayes will always be remembered by me, as a Christian lady. Strong in her faith in God. Also, a dependable strong, trustworthy, reliable & independent person. She did not fear or shy away from hard work, especially if the results benefited others, not just herself. Rev. Sandara Dev
