I have often and tor decades thought Sally was the best and not only because she and John were so important in my Mom and Dad's life. They were friends for life, and I hope beyond. As I grew up. Sally was the most fun and refreshing friend to my Mom. I was so happy to see Sally in my parent's family room as I matured. It was instant laughs and love and she was truly one of the most true and giving persons I will ever have the honor to know.
She will be missed in all of my family.
And I hope she is watching Eric and John playing cribbage!
