Rich and Drew,
I was surprised and distressed to hear of the passing of Sallie just this afternoon. I know that you have not spent much time here at the lake in some time and we have had little contact when you were here. But having also lost my wife before her time also I can emphasize with your feelings. Even though we are not close I can feel your loss. Be ensured that my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Sallie and I went to Salem College together but really became friends afterwards when we worked together at Fingertips Decorative Fabrics in Winston-Salem. She caught the bouquet at my wedding in 1989. Such a sweet person. I regret that we lost touch. My deepest sympathies to all the family. Karen Taylor

I didn’t know Sallie well, or for long; only the two years that my daughter attended Carlisle and played field hockey. Sallie was one of the first Carlisle moms I met. She was always so friendly toward me; the “new girl from Greensboro’s mom”and passionate about the Carlisle athletics teams. I am so saddened by her passing, and so very sorry for your loss. Drew, your message on Facebook is so heartfelt. She, I’m certain, is enormously proud of the young man you have become.

I remember being in the midst of life shattering sadness when Morgan was hurt and trying to tell your mom all the details of baby Connor’s routine etc.
she hugged me tightly While I cried and said, “I got this. We are going to love on that baby....he’ll be fine. You focus on Morgan”. She and you and Maddie and your dad did just that. Connor thrived in your loving home and I survived because of a dear friend. So grateful to have known your mom like I did. She had the biggest heart and love you kids so very much. ❤️

Richard, I’m so heartbroken for you all. Sallie was always so kind and sweet to me from the day we met. I’ll never forget her coming to my rescue when I locked my keys in my car at Walmart when we first moved to town 20 years ago. She barely knew me but took me under her wing after seeing me frantically searching for my keys, in the heat, with baby Scott on my hip in the parking lot, even though she was 9 months pregnant with Madison and had Drewry in the shopping cart with a huge shopping list to tackle. Before I could blink, she threw the keys to her car to me and told me to come find her in the store after I drove home to get an extra set of keys. She was a true angel and she instantly made me feel like everything would be okay in our new town with such kind and genuine people like Sallie. Over the next 20 years, I always enjoying working with her on fundraising events at Carlisle and could always count on her ever present smile and Mama Bear work ethic, especially when her children were concerned! I’ll never forget her laugh and her beautiful smile and the way she always asked about my children when they began to leave the nest-so genuine, so thoughtful. Praying for you, the children and Mr. Woodson for peace and healing.

I will always remember Sallie as a sweet and kind person who loved her family and friends. Always positive and I loved being around her. I’m so glad I got to spend a good part of my evening with her at the zentmeyer wedding. I will always see that as a gift 🙏❤️

I can't tell you how saddened and shocked I was to hear about Sallie. She was such a beautiful person and a special part of my life back when Emily was a baby. I just today was telling a friend about the time that Leslie and Sallie babysat for Emily while Ed and I had a night away and Emily had a reaction to the antibiotic that she was on. Could never have imagined that later today I would learn of her passing. Please know that you and your children are in my thoughts and prayers. Cherish all of the wonderful memories that you had with her. Much love, Caroline Bowden Christman
