Sally I worked with you when I was with Tracey's Hope Pet Hospice & Rescue. During that time we shared many ups and downs with Tracey's Hope. Your first duty was always with the animals in need. You had the patience and the love to do this with all of them and you did it selflessly. You will be greatly missed. When the loss becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasure. With sympathy to your family. Love Terry Knorrston Fl.

Dear Sally
I knew you for many years and knew how much you loved animals and volunteered with Tracey's Hope.
You will be sadly missed but now you are with God and happy again. I bet the rainbow bridge is full of the animals running to you.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Sally's passing today. I had the great pleasure of working with her for a few years and getting to know of her exceptional compassion towards all people she met. I just now read about her same compassion for our dear pets. It did not surprise me. May her unconditional love for helping our four legged animals only grow over time. She was truly a real Earth Angel in my eyes. My sympathy to her family and friends.
