    From our trips out to Denver as little girls, to Nashville and the many family reunions inbetween, I will always remember my Aunt Sally’s spirit and the tremendous love she had for life and family. She truly filled the room with her presence and will be missed terribly. With love to Uncle Don, Donna, Debi, Darlene and Mike and the rest of the family.

    Although small in stature, Sally cast a great positive light. I will always remember her as filled with fun and joy. I hope that you find comfort in the wonderful legacy she leaves behind.

    We had wonderful times together for more than 70 years; childhood memories, getting our families together and the wonderful trips to London, Paris,
    Switzerland, Germany, Canada and the northeastern United States. We have wonderful memories to comfort us until we meet again. I am so proud of the way you handled your illness and the fun times we had together in spite of it. We’ll be together again some day.
