Sally and Dave were neighbors of mine years ago in the 1950s and 60s. My late husband, Roy Kennedy, worked with Dave @ the old Georgia Kaolin. Both were extremely nice people and I watched their children grow up those years too. I am so sorry to learn of the loss of Sally. She was a lovely person and a good mother and wife. My love to Charles, Bettie and Peggy with your loss. Fondly - Carolyn Kennedy Dominy
