    Sally was a kind and generous soul. Her quick-witt and energetic personality brought joy to everyone around her.
    She was my “other mother” for almost my whole life, and I feel so lucky to have known her.

    She lived a long, happy life, and I hope that will be a comfort to her loved ones going forward.

    We will miss you forever, Sally. Rest in peace.

    Sally was my very dear and sincere friend; always there to listen, to give wise advice if it was wanted, and so easy to talk with. She was witty; her spontaneous remarks and humor always lightened the room. I will miss her so very much.

    She was very proud of each of her and Peter’s four great kids. May God comfort each of you, and Nicholas and Peter too.

    Until we all meet again.

    Sally was an angel. She always treated me so well, but I wasn’t special, she treated everyone that way. Even though we didn’t spend much time together lately I often thought of her.
    I know I can’t say anything to make anyone feel better but you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sally and Peter were good friends, especially in the years we were at Emmanuel church, Norwood. They were both lovingly involved in many ministries. I still make a favorite recipe from Peter, Baked Stuffed Scallops. Sally, a faithful choir member. Their are many wonderful memories. My sympathy to the family, with love and prayers, Renny Kidder
