It was always a delight to be with Sally and hear stories from her past. She was always so kind and her outlook always positive . We think the visits she enjoyed most was when we brought our dog Henry along! It has been a blessing to us and our church family to have known her for these past sixteen years.

Such a blessing to have known Sally these past 16 years through our church. She was always a bright light in our lives, even when she could no longer drive or go fishing! We have moved out of state, but we miss her.

She was a peach, and it was an honor to have known her. My hope is that she is enjoying the Lord now and forever. Amen.
