I was lucky enough to get to know Sally at the Tipton House as I work in the Activity Department there. She was always a joy to be around. Everyone loved her smile and enjoyed talking with her. I remember just sitting with her talking and visiting with her often. I really loved getting to know her and became quite close to her. I love her and will miss her so much.
