Mr. Arnold, Toni, John and family,
I loved Sally and I'm so sorry I can't be there for her funeral. I loved her. She was the coolest mom I knew. She let me call her Sally and always treated me like I was part of the family. I could walk in through the lower back door and never had to worry that I wasn't in my own home.I really enjoyed the pictures for her memorial online. I found myself smiling at most every picture. She was a beautiful woman who was full of life. I'm blessed to have known her.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I do know that a part of her will live on with all of you and you should find joy in that during this difficult time.

Much Love,
Terri Morris Orem
