I am so sorry to hear of Sally's passing. She was my boss at Woolf & Woolf while I was there, she was a wonderful woman. Very caring and concerned about how to make things better. She is a blessed soul that touched many people and she will be greatly missed. She is finally out of pain and at peace.

I am so sorry to hear Sally has passed. We've been friends since we were teenagers. I met Sally in Trappe @ Dottie's house. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. I loved to hear Sally laugh. Sally could always make lemonade out of lemons. No matter how tough life was for her, she was always caring and thoughtful of others. I know Merci and Todd, this is a very hard loss for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Meter
