My prayers go to the family. Ms. Sally was a wonderful and caring lady. She will truly be missed.

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace.

My sincere Sympathy in the loss of Ms. Sallie. She and I attended services together and on occasion I had opportunities to pick her up, and after service buy her lunch and take her home. We talked a lot about how we would always watch over our loved ones when we were gone. If I told you what she said she would do to you if you didn't stay on the straight and narrow path, you would laugh until you dropped from the laughing pain. I truly admired her love for Christ, and her messages to me during my trials. I am just sad I never met her earlier. May God be with all of you now, as you say good-bye, but always maintain your memories. And as Ms. Sallie always told me, "When you stumble, He was there!" Bye Ms. Sallie....
