To the Gorton Family,
Sally and I went all through school together in Selah. We were both in the Girls Choral Group at Selah High. A few years ago we laughed and reminisced our teen years as she rode over with us to our 60 year reunion.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dearest Sally: You were an inspiration and role model for all of us. I loved seeing you as the wonderful hostess at your cabin, and as the oh so knowledgeable tour guide for me and my groups when coming to DC and touring the White House. We all truly felt privileged that when you found out we would be there, you told Slade you wanted to escort us.

God bless you and your wonderful family. While you are saving them all a seat in heaven, maybe save one for me too.

I was absolutely shocked when I read about your passing. (As you know I have been out of the loop for some time now.) You will remain my greatest roll model. God has called one fantastic lady to come join him in Heaven.

I had the opportunity to meet Sally several years ago when I sat at the same table as Slade and Sally at a political event. She was gracious, sweet, and welcoming. Our family's prayers go out to Slade and the entire Gorton family.

Our deepest sympathy to Slade and family.
Sally and I worked together as realtors during the time they lived in Olympia.
Many evenings we would curl up with a glass of wine and visit while our husbands were doing their political activities. She was the most gracious, lovely lady and we had a lot of fun together. Sadly we lost touch when Jack retired and they moved from DC to Seattle. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

It is with a sad heart that I extend my deep sympathies to: Slade, Tom, Sarah, Becky, and the rest of the Gorton family. Sally was greatly enjoyable to be with, as intelligent in conversation as she was clever and witty. I've missed spending time with her these past few years, but luckily I still retain an abundance of fond memories from the times I spent at Whidby Island, Magnolia and Clyde Hill. Sally was a treasure and will be truly missed.
