Sally and her family were our neighbors for many years. She always had a kind word and a smile. I have very fond memories of her and her life was a testament of her faith and love for God and her children. She is home now and all of God's saints will reunite with her again one day. To Paul and Susan, Marie, Ruby and the rest of her family, you are in my thoughts and my prayers. May God comfort you and hold you close in the coming days.
