    Sending prayers to the family. To know Mrs. Gully was a blessing. She was at the high school when I was there, my son and daughter. What a beautiful lady inside and out. She will be deeply missed by our community.

    Mrs. Sara Gully was a beautiful lady, kind and considerate to all. I first met her many years ago when we were on a bowling team together. Prayers for the Pope and Gully families as they mourn the loss of this wonderful lady!

    We loved Ms. Sarah! She was always a good friend to Vera at Denham Springs High School ever ready with a smile and assistance. Sarah, Brooks and Vera led a group of DSHS students to Europe years ago and she made the trip so much fun. She and Brooks were a great example of a loving couple. Our wishes for love and comfort for the Gully and Pope families!
