    I am so sorry for your loss. Her name was spoken often in my home growing up and I always enjoyed being with this family.

    Sandy and Rita- I am just devastated by the loss of Aunt Sally. I have loved her all my life it seems. She was always so kind and gracious to me. When Uncle John and I used to visit her and Uncle Harold, she gave me her bed ( against my protests!) and even shared her little blue jar of Vick’s Salve with me! She took me to my very first Jack Daniel’s BBQ too. And she also introduced me to the Host of Christmas Past.

    I will miss her laugh, her smile and the way she made you feel- loved and welcome. She was a very special lady and I am so glad I have so many wonderful memories of her.

    She loved all of you so much! Prayers for you all and your families and Chris and Peggy. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

    With much love!

    What a sweet and beautiful lady she was. She would wake up when we would visit mother and she would say, ” Hello girl”. I know mother loved being her room mate. I am so sorry. Prayers to you all. But she is with the Greatest Physician of all and celebrating! I have thought about her a lot his year.
