Katherine Hobbs

In memory of Sarah Crocker Hobbs

In 1984, my mother Sarah was murdered in our home with a handgun by an acquaintance diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic. She was only 54 and a new grandmother. She was loved by her family, friends and many students in the schools where she worked. Always doing good for others, she lived her Methodist beliefs. I miss her sorely, but I carry her with me, alive in my heart.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
