Thank you Sally for being so kind to me. It's hard to navigate this world, thanks for your gentle guidance to this once young fledgling. Patience was your strength, such a great role model. I recall listening to your Eric Clapton CD. Lay down Sally and rest in God's arms. God is surely wanting to talk to you. He is saying, "Good job faithful servant." ❤ Thanks again for the numerous lunchs, and your delicious carrot cake. Thank you for my dear friend Cathy, she's truly a gift to this world. Peace be with you. You and Joe have built a beautiful family.❤❤❤

Joe, Cathy, and Laura...I am so sorry to hear about Sally. Of course the memories of Hudson Lake and looking forward to your family being there for the summer are what I experienced this morning. I am thinking of you all.
