Kelly Moran Campbell and I have been buddies since Jr. High and Salli put up with us at the house all the time. Salli was always so understanding and supportive to me. My Grandmother lived across the highway and my father fished in the creek as a young boy. Now we all have another angel watching over us. Love to the whole family!

As youngsters our families were together a lot. Her mother was my dad's sister. In 1950 we moved to California and the families visitations dropped to less than the fingers on one hand. So unfortunate. Best of my knowledge that leave only Cheryl Ulrich and myself left of the Thiel clan.

I will miss her smile and laugh. Both were always so big. One year for my birthday, I believe it was my 13th she gave me a big box of packaged sunflower seeds. I was always chewing on them and so she new I would love a large stash. So thoughtful! She will be missed. XOXO
