I was saddened to see the passing of such a wonderful man. I recall our very first meeting in his home some years ago. Sabe was a joy to work with as he was kind, considerate, determined, and a real experience to be around! Truly, a joy! I will miss this guy who was larger than life in the most important ways, served his country well, gave back to his community, and loved his family with all of his being. I have prayed for repose of his soul and that the Holy Spirit comfort all of his family and friends in this time of loss. My sincere condolences to you, Edie, and all of Sabe’s family. May he Rest In Peace.

Sabe was a wonderful part of our lives. More than a friend, he was Family to us; his loyalty, kindness, and willingness to help us in so many ways will never be forgotten. Our Sympathy to his beloved Family, he loved you all beyond measure, and was proud of every thing you accomplished. A true Patriot, Sabe also loved his Country, and everything good it stands for. Heaven just gained a man who could repair a cloud above if needed! Miss you, My Friend.
