This month we are pleased to introduce our dear friend Sara Lasater, straight from the heart of Texas. Sara is a dyed-in-the-wool, genuine Texan, born in Commerce, Texas, in 1940. Her father worked on the railroad as both a conductor and the official timekeeper for the train system. Later, he and Sara’s mother owned and operated a jewelry store in Commerce. The family was active in the community, and both her parents were members of local Masonic organizations. In keeping with Texan tradition, Sara grew up on horseback with a love for all animals, especially dogs.
