Dear Blackie, There aren't any words to express the sadness that Bill and I feel at the loss of Sally. She was so full of life and was always giving of herself for the good of others. She was wonderful, always wanting the USS Anne Arundel WWII men to meet each year for their reunion. Now she is about Heaven's work and I am sure she will find many things to do. Bill and I send our love to you, Nancy and your family.
Dr. Bill and Helen Martin, Greenville, North Carolina

Ms. Sally was a great friend to me. I met her a few months after she came to Autumn Care and she became a special part of my life. My night always went a little smoother after talking to her and she making me laugh. I will miss her very much. I will always love you Ms. Sally...

Sally was a great woman, I am surely going to miss her smiling face, I have known Sally since Tomorrow's Learning Center back in 1988. She has always been a caring and loving person since I have known her. I thank God for having the opportunity to have met someone so special.
