Don, Jim, Debbie & Tammy,

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

Sally was a "special lady".

She had the special knack of always making you feel welcomed.

She was such a joy to talk with.

I will always remember her with a warm smile and an infectious laugh.

The world will seem a little more lonely without her presence.

With love & fondest memories,

Bob Roche
