Any who has been in the Sauceman home knows the love and devotion they felt for one another. Through all their years Mr Sauceman's first thought was for his home and family.
It was Mrs Sauceman's desire to live and to take care of him until the end: then she was ready to go. It was not until he suffered a slight stroke in December that he became despondent and worried constantly about himself and her future.
Their self-sacrifice and untiring devotion to others will long be remembered by all who knew them.
