Dearest Jerry,

We will miss Sally greatly and understand that words offer little solace in this difficult time for you. Our hearts, prayers, and love are with you and the whole family. We offer you our gratitude for the way you both accepted us as family and feel truly blessed to have known Sally for the caring, sweet woman she was. All our best, in His loving grip.

So sorry to hear of Sally's passing. Will always remember and treasure my time with her at bunco and going out to dinner. She was a grand lady in every sense. I will miss her. Prayers and love to all of you.
