Sarah Rose Serrano age 21, a resident of Aurora, NC died Friday, February 8, 2019.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM Saturday, February 16, 2019 at Edward Christian Church officiated by Pastor David Linton. The family will receive friends prior to the service at the church from 1:00 PM until the service hour.
Sarah Rose was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on August 7, 1997. Sarah touched the lives of everyone she ever came in contact with. The thing she loved doing the most was spending time with her son, family and friends. Her son Ritchie was the light of her life, the center of her world, and the apple of her eye. Nothing made her happier than the laughter of her baby boy. She could never sit still, she always had to be doing something to keep herself busy whether it was laughing and joking with people or taking "selfies". Anytime that you would talk to Sarah she would have you laughing uncontrollably. She was always the "rock" that everybody could lean on. When she walked into a room the whole room would instantly light up. Sarah will be greatly missed by her mother, her father, her son, her siblings, all her family, and her friends.
She is survived by her mother: Melissa Southard and dad: Jason Southard of Aurora, NC; a son: Ritchie Serrano Southard of Aurora, NC; a sister: Jackie Miloro and husband Scott of Aurora, NC; two brothers: Michael Serrano and fiancee Madison of Newport, NC; Matthew Serrano of Aurora, NC; maternal grandmother: Myra Shields of Aurora, NC; maternal grandfather: Tom Shields of Aurora, NC; paternal grandmother: Rosa Gonzalez, two nieces: Sophia and Secilia Miloro, two step-sisters: Taylor Tewkesbury and Courtney Southard and many uncles, aunts and cousins who loved her. She was preceded in death by her father: George Serrano who died on January 19, 1997.

    Sarah was a beautiful girl with a huge heart. I will never forget her smile that lit up every room she walked in. She left this earth way to soon, and she will surely never be forgotten by any of us. Rest easy baby girl. Watch over your family.

    Sarah you were such an amazing person. You had a beautiful smile with an infectious laugh. There wasn't a moment we spent together where we didn't throw our heads back in laughter. I remember all the night's I stayed over and the headaches we gave mom. What I would give to laugh with you just one more time. You were the first true friend I had ever had, you accepted me for who I was. You were such a kind, sweet, beautiful soul. This world was lucky to have you! I'll never forget you or the moments we shared, no matter how much time passes. I still can't believe you're gone. I know you're in abetter place, it would be better if that place was here with us still, but I guess he needed you more. Until we meet again my sweet friend, I love you forever and always.

    Sarah Rose, Our beautiful Angel, I just want you to know that Mom and Dad love you so much. We promise you that we will raise Richie to the best of our ability. We know you will be watching down and protecting him. We will make you proud, and that's a promise. Ugh, this is going to be so tough not getting any more phone calls from you, no more hearing your voice, no more seeing that beautiful smile, no more hugs, no more seeing you taking selfies, no more hearing, I love you Mommy. Oh God, I don't know what we are all gonna do! You left me with the biggest heartache any mother could go through. I told you that you can't leave me first! Ugh Baby.. I really miss you. We ALL miss you! I love you baby Girl!
