    Sally was a force to be reckoned with and she was fiercely protective of those she loved! From the moment we met she was always so kind and complimentary towards me. She appreciated and was amused by my special friendship with Todd and Brent. Two of my recent favorite memories…her teaching me how to play Yahtzee and Todd and I singing favorite church hymns in the kitchen and car!

    Thank you for creating and gifting Todd to the world! Rest in peace Sally. Big hugs!

    My dear friend. I have been blessed to have you in my life for 65+ years.
    As we got older our conversations became fewer, but our love and repect
    for one another never changed.

    May you be at piece and know I will never forget you.
    Much Love and a broken heart,

    Cin and Phil

    Brent and Todd, loved reading about Sally and learning more about her life. She sure did great work as a mom.

    Sally was my cousin, but more like a sister and always a friend. She loved fiercely and was totally loyal. Her sense of humor was ever present. She is a blessing.

    I worked a number of years at the same grade school as Sally in which we became friends! The children were always so happy to go to the library because Sally always made the time enjoyable! She will be surely missed!
