My mother's sister and the aunt that I knew best. It was but a few years ago that I say Aunt Sally for the last time; I certainly would have liked to have been able to attend the services and to see my cousin Lori.

My opportunity of teaching her in our Auburn Stake Adult Religion Class was not only a joy, but also a wonderfully reflective time of seeing her very alert, bright eyes, and sensing her interest in things of a spiritual and analytic nature. Her presence was always a bright part of the class each time, and her faithful attendance was an example of commitment to all the members of the class. For her daughter, Lorraine, who always brought her to class, my wife and I have special feelings as well. Her participation with excellent comments were and will be forever a credit to the relationship she had with her mother.
May peace and tranquility reign in the hearts of her family members, as you adjust to this temporary separation from this truly remarkable woman, sister in the gospel of Jesus Christ, friend, and daughter of an eternal Father in Heaven, who is ready to bless all with His choicest blessings as they seek to do His will and keep His commandments.
Love and Immanuel,

David [and Eleanor Dickson]

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time grief. Psalms 46:1 says God is for us a refuge and strength and a help readily to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.

How blessed my life has been to have known Sally. I'll always remember the kindness that she extended to me and my daughter, especially when I was a young mother. She always had such a sweetness and goodness surrounding her. She will be greatly missed by so many. Angela Wroblewski
