Sally Ann had a beautiful soul. Caring, giving, loving and ready to smile. I will always remember her jumping in my pool telling Barbara and me "you just gotta jump in, its not cold", even if it was freezing. Just one more of many memories to share was her love for children. She would have all of the children sitting on the floor doing arts and crafts or playing games including my grandchildren.
Rest in peace my friend, in gods loving arms for eternity. Your friend Doris
