Vickie and Dennis - I was saddened to hear of your loss. I will always remember "Aunt Silly Sally" as one of my very favorite aunts. I always looked forward to our visits to Ohio and mom and Aunt Sally sharing stories with each other at the kitchen table and laughing so hard they cried. May you find comfort in knowing your mom was loved by many. We will keep your family in our prayers. Alison (Beebe) Bivens
