    Sally was a friend from work. We had lots of chats during that time and I really enjoyed those times. I am so sorry we lost touch after we both left the hospital except on facebook. I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember her fondly. Prayers for all.

    Sally was my cousin. We had lots of fun together playing on Grandma’s hill and on the Miller farm when we’d come to West Virginia for family reunions. Sally was always positive in her outlook and always made me laugh. I will miss her. Condolences to Jacob, Shay, and her brothers and their families.

    I met Sally about 20 years ago because our sons were friends and I can still hear her bragging about her Jacob and how much help he was to her being a single Mom. The last time I saw her was in Kroger and we talked at length about going to lunch soon, but sadly we never did. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
