Just wish to offer my condolences to the family. (Psalm 90:10) In themselves the days of our years are seventy years; And if because of special mightiness they are eighty years.

May God give the family and friends strength and peace during this time and in days to come.

A woman's good conduct is becoming to her family. Mrs. Gordon's family, friends, and colleagues could truly say several nice and pleasant things about her. May you have peace and comfort in prayer. Proverb 31:25,27,28.

Can't say enough about this wonder of a woman--W.O.W!!!

I feel like going on!
February 16, 2012
As sergeant-at-arms Sally would march me back to the legislative floor for a vote gently chastising me for leaving in the first place. She was never gruff as she certainly had a right to be. Gracious lady.
February 16, 2012
At one time Sally was involved with the Centennial College on the UNL campus when our son Phil was a student there. In subsequent years she never failed to ask about him. Sally loved poeple.
February 16, 2012
I had the pleasure of watching the documentary on this remarkable woman. She is truly an inspiration to us all as women, mothers, sisters and friend. Her poise and grace never faded, even at 102. What an amazing woman? We should all take notes and jot them down in our own book of life. May Sally rest in peace.
February 16, 2012
What a lovely tribute to inspirational lady. Service with a pure heart, how proud her family must feel.
February 16, 2012
Deepest sympathy to the family of a great lady. I hope there will be a novel about her life and in particular the secret to her longevity. Her diet and health habits had to play a role in her being active to such a wonderful age.

Truly one of God's Angels...Rest in Peace Sally...Ralph M. Yonkers, NY

This lovely woman is a true testament to a person who was clearly part of the solution! STARTING a job at age 75? Unbelievable!!! My grandmother worked until her death at age 70. My grandparents and parents both instilled in me a wonderful work ethic that I passed along to my children. I'm blessed to have had that in my life; Ms. Gordon will truly be remembered as one hell of a shining example of hard work and consummate professionalism!
February 15, 2012

I'M SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THE LOST OF YOUR LOVE ONE. MAY GOD COMFORT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. MATTHEW 5:4 SAYS,”BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN: FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTED”.

To the family so sorry for you loss....BE PROUD OF HER!!
February 15, 2012
What a wonderful person! I'm 60 years old and will graduate from college in December 2012. I'm going into a new field of work, although it is something that I always wanted to do. This gives me even more encouragement and more stigma to do it. She is a mentor to me and I only wish I could meet her in person. May she rest in peace.
February 15, 2012
It is women like you that inspire women like me.
February 15, 2012
Sally you were definitely an amazing woman. May your family find comfort in the beautiful memories. May you rest in peace knowing you gave it your all and them some. GOD bless.
February 15, 2012
May she be in God's memory, for only he has the power to resurrect. She had lived a long life and did many things. -eccl. 7:1 My thoughts go out to your family and sympathize for your loss.
February 15, 2012
I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. It's comforting to know that God cares for all of us. The Bible gives us hope that one day we can see our loved ones again. On behalf of all mankind Jesus surrendered his soul. John 15:13 says “No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his soul on behalf of his friends.” I hope these few words will bring you comfort and hope.
February 15, 2012
What a lady. She should be appreciated beyoung mere words.

Sally, I know you're not so far away that you cannot hear me. I'm 73, still working and with God's blessing, I will always be working. You are an inspiration to me and always will be. Wish I could have known you! A great Lady is now working with God and the angels.
