Sallie brought us great joy. In her early years here, she would advise other residents of remedies for their maladies earned in her many years in nursing. She opened her heart to everyone, regardless of race or social stature -- she was truly a caregiver. Sallie inspired our staff to find the best in others and with every breath, serve them. She aggressively shared her candies, her knowledge and her love with us. We shall not recover quickly from our loss. Peggy
