  1. My deepest sympathy go out to Sally’s family.I have known Sally for years she was a great lady. I hadn’t seen her in a long time until i seen her at Simeon DeWitt when my mom [Lena Gray] and myself moved in there. She would be walking around in side a lot and we would talk. She was just a wonderful person and will be missed.
