What beautiful eulogy of Sally life. Like everyone else she had her ups and downs in life but it was also filled with love and laughter.
Thoughts of her always brings a smile to my face.

You sacrificed so much raising us on your own and you always made sure if there was something special we wanted, somehow you made it happen, usually by working more hours. You were a Great Mom who taught me how to love myself and others, be a caring, responsible, respectful person . I know we didn't always agree on things, but we never let it come between us . I am glad George and I were able to take care of you in your final months, to spend time with you and tell you how much I love you everyday. You would always say, I love you more. I miss you so much already, but I know you are with God and Georgie, Paul and other family. So give them all a big kiss and hug for me and tell them that I love them .
Love, Carol Lynn
