Ms. Sally was a most genuinely sweet and loving Lady. She always wore a smile and could not do enough for friends and family. Selfless, adoring, Godly, and classy at all times: Her family was her pride and joy. She loved all of her family completely with all of her heart. People loved to go to her line when she worked at the bank because she always wore that smile, asked about their families , and just brightened everyone's day. I was so blessed to have known her. Prayers of comfort to her family and your great loss. With love,
