Sally, as she was known to us will truly
be missed. Anytime she was around there was laughter and a lot of fun! The last time I got to visit with her was at my brother Buddy's home. She and Linda came for lunch, I think we laughed more than we ate. We reminenced about the days when we were kids and fun we had. How much she. loved our parents, Edgar & Lydia and what a blessing they had been in her life. The feeling was mutual, they both loved Sally and Wilburn. Family...know your cousins will miss her too. Keep your faith up and know she's in Heaven!❤
