I learned of Sally's passing too late to attend either the visitation or the funeral. I value Sally as a stalwart and loyal friend, a caring neighbor, a dynamic and vital member of our community. She added a sparkle of pure fun to any group. You will be missed, my friend.

So many memories - on and off the golf course, and especially at Pilot club meetings and district, and international conventions. She never let anything slow her down. She and Dick are together again.

Van, I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I pray that Peace that God provides rest upon you and your whole family during this tough time. I too lost my father and then my mother a year later. I know how much this absolutely wrenches your heart. I can promise that time will dull the pain and you will be left with good memories and smiles years from now. God Bless you my Brother.

Psalm 90:10 tells us:"The span of our life is 70 years, Or 80 if one is especially strong." This speaks true of your love one. May joyful memories replace the grief in your hearts. My warmest condolences to the Wehr family.

I am so sorry hear of Sally's passing. She was a joy to work with and I always called her the Post Child on aging. Thinking of you Van and Jay at this time of loss. On our recent "girl's trip" she told me she really missed Dick and was looking forward to joining him. Rest in peace Sally.
