Our family has a collective broken heart, yet we celebrate the life of God's angel on earth. The lives she touched seem as numerous as the stars. If we can all be even a little bit like Sally, the Light will shine brighter in our world.
You were the corner stone of our family. You will be dearly missed.
You were truly one of the nicest, most genuine people I've ever met. We were lucky enough to be a part of your beautiful family. You'll be missed dearly.
We sent an Email to your Canadian cousins asking that they remember Sally in their prayers. She was a wonderful companion for you over so many years. Now she has gone ahead to prepare a place for you. A woman's work is never done.

Dear Mike, I am sorry to hear of Sally's passing. No matter that death is always with us; it is never welcome. I know you and Sally had many happy years together and a wonderful network of friends and family. I hope these sustain you. I think of you often with fondness and gratitude. Jan Weatherbe
