Sally was such a sweet person. She was so kind to everyone she came in contact with. I would always sit with her in church when I lived in Guys Mills. Sally would send me Christmas cards every year and we had many long talks on the phone. I will miss Sally alot she touched so many people in her life. Good bless. My prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends.
