I worked with Sally at INS in Miami. She was always a "people" person. I enjoyed your family photos where she was setting out a huge buffet with a big smile on her face. At our office parties she always made sure there was enough food for everyone. She loved her family, her faith, and her friends. She worked to make her community a better place. I send my deepest sympathies to her family. May her memory be a blessing.
