Joanne, Linda, Ronnie and Paul, I am so sorry for the loss of Miss Sallie, but she left some previous memories! I can still vividly remember her working in her yards—when Dusty would pass, he loved to honk at her. She always waved at him! Please know that I will pray for God’s perfect peace for your family!!!!! Sending much love and condolences...
