Aunt Sally always went out of her way to make us feel like we were special. She was so loving and generous toward our family. She was so easy to talk to and every conversation ended with laughter and/or hugs. We still have the beautiful veil that she made for our wedding. Aunt Sally will never be forgotten and we will always love her!
