    Sally – We’ve been a part of each others lives since 1967 in CA. I will never forget you my dear friend. My only consolation is that you are with John, in heaven, and that makes me happy. One day we’ll laugh again. I’m keeping Ginger, Dean and Mickey in my prayers.
    Love you, Carol

  2. Dona R. Jordan says

    Dear Sally – We have known each other since 1950 when your brother “Red” and I started going together. California had you for 40 years and during those years, our family had many great memories–especially during the holidays. I will never ever forget those good times. I am so glad you moved to Montana with Ginger, Dean and Mickey–not because I wanted to get rid of you–but because you met John, the love of your life. You two were meant for each from day one and now you two have been reunited. Rest in Peace and we will see you again!!
    Love, Dona and Red (Robert)

    Dearest family, I know you may not know me well, but I knew your parents, somewhat. I am the one who delivered their meals on wheels, and I would like to tell you they were very nice,gracious, and wonderful people. I thank you for the opportunity to serve them. Please take comfort knowing they are together again, without pain and heartache. They are safe in the arms of our Lord. May God bless you all. Thank you again, Duzzie Stolp, Meals on Wheels

    My sincere condolences. I am Sally and John’s next door neighbor and often spoke with Sally in the summer time when we were outdoors doing our yard work and Sally was tending to her flowers. She had a such lovely smile and I always enjoyed visiting with her. I will miss her very much.
