In all the years I have known Sally she always had this big smile and was always happy to see me. Of course she always gave a hug along with her smile. She had a big heart cared for others, very spiritual lady. Meeting Ronnie was the highlight of her life along with her girls. She was a kind hearted loving person. I will miss her.
What a vision to know that her parents, siblings, loved ones and son
