Sally was a wonderful lady and friend. She was like a mom to me when we worked together at school. I have many fond memories of our times together. My and my family’s sincere sympathy to the family. May good memories help through these sad times.
I am sad to say we will be out of state at the time of her service.

Dear John and Family;
I just learned today of Aunt Sally’s passing. I am so very sorry I didn’t know to attend the service to give you my condolences in person.
When my middle son Will was married we chose the date around a trip that Aunt Sally was taking, because we could never imagine him being married without her there.
John and I loved her so very much.
She was my dad’s “best friend” he always said.
My wonderful memories of her throughout my life will always be with me.
May her memory be eternal.

I am so very sorry to hear that Sally has passed. Wish I could’ve been at the service, but was traveling in SD! Loved Sally and her visits with my mom!

Dear John, I’m sorry I didn’t know about your mom’s passing until now or I would have offered my condolence in person. I only learned of Dave’s passing from her obituary. I treasure many happy memories of you and your family. God Speed.
