I am so Sorry to hear about your Losses. Sally was so very Kind to Myself and My Family. Her Smile was one of kindness and compassion, May God keep His Loving arms around all those she Loved.

Sally sure loved her family and was so proud of each of her children & grandchildren (great-grands I'm sure too). She was a wonderful example to me growing up.

Thank you for sharing Sally, Pete & Petey with my family all of the years they lived next to us in West Jordan. Sally & Pete were like grandparents to me, and I have many wonderful memories of them that I will always treasure.

May your entire family be filled with the Savior's peace, comfort and love, now and always. And may the memories fill your hearts & minds with love & light.
