A precious angel gained her wings during Hurricane Michael!  My name is Kim Hendrix and Sarah Radney was my beautiful niece that was always happy and smiling when I saw her! Unfortunately Sarah was fatally injured during Hurricane Michael.  Her family is devastated and they just do not know how they will be able to give her the memorial service that she deserves.  They also have some very tough battles to fight as they work through how they will get through this devastation and move forward, especially since there are so many obstacles due to the devastation from the Hurricane (not to mention the emotional battles)  I pray that I am able to help my family through the kind hearts of others who wish to contribute to Sarah’s memory and wish to help her big beautiful family!  Sarah has four sisters, one brother, a loving father, a kind and loving step-mother, a mother, and a loving and caring grandma and grandpa just to name a few of her immediate family and there are so many more! Unfortunately the family is going through a tough time and while money cannot heal or make the situation a happy one, the funds will assist the family in working through some tough battles in the coming days and months.  We would all appreciate your kind contribution to help but also appreciate prayers for Sarah’s family especially her parents, siblings, and grandparents.  Thank you in advance. RIP beautiful Sarah! We love you!

While I live in Mississippi, I am from Cairo, GA and I’m attempting to raise funds for my niece's family.  Sarah is my niece and the daughter of my brother, Roy Radney.  Roy is the son of Elizabeth and Eugene Radney who live in Donalsonville, GA.
All funds raised will go to the Radney family to assist in funeral expenses and the rest of the family who will be out of work for an undetermined amount of time.

Yesterday was a busy and challenging/tough day for the Radney’s and all of Sarah’s family and friends. The funeral was at 11:00am at Pine Hill Baptist Church in Cairo. There were approximately 350 people in attendance according to Clark’s Funeral Home.

The family would like to thank so many people for everything they have done to help the family in this tough time. At the top of that list is Pine Hill Baptist Church. This is the Radney’s Church and are their family also. The Church helped the family in more ways than I can list here! The Church announced to us that they are also set up as a Comfort Station for those still without power due to the massive generator they have. They have air conditioning, showers, water, ice, and showers. They stated they aren’t able to provide food at this time and please bring towels if you plan to take showers as they do not have towels.

We also thank Clark Funeral Home for everything they did to provide the Funeral Service for Sarah. They did a great job even with the obstacles due to the effects of the storm.

After the Funeral, Washington Middle School held a Memorial Service. Many of Sarah’s past and current teachers spoke and told touching stories about Sarah! This was probably the most emotional experience publicly that the family had yesterday. The stories that the teachers and school personnel told about Sarah and the rest of her family were the sweetest and really gave a true representation of what a sweet, caring, fun, helpful, and God-fearing little girl Sarah was. They also told stories of how much she loved and adored her family and especially the connection she had with her brother Gavin who is only a year apart in age. Sarah’s Sunday school teachers from Church also spoke and just thinking about all of the speakers and what they said is bringing me to tears now!
Two people who are friends of the family also spoke. Of the many great things they said, one thing that I’ll always remember is, “I didn’t even have to exaggerate or make things up about Sarah to tell how sweet and beautiful she was as a person, she was just that special of a little girl!”

The Mayor of Cairo also spoke and offered support for everyone in Cairo.

Some of the students made t-shirts to wear at the schools balloon release and memorial. They were adorable and I’ve attached pictures.

I wish I had more information and better words to give right now but I wanted to share a little of what I could quickly.

Thank you again to all of you that have sent up prayers, provided love and support, donated, and just shared your condolences and heart-felt comments to the family! It means so much more than we can express in words!
