  2. Oh, I’m so sad to hear of Sally’s passing. We met at Lamar University and were roommates for two years. She was one of my best friends and we had so much fun together! After graduation, we kept in touch and would get together often when I would visit family in southeast Texas. My deepest sympathy to Sally’s family and friends on whom she relied so much in these last few years. RIP Sally.

  3. Sal, thank you for being my sister for 71 years. We have had our differences in our lifetime, as all siblings do, but you have always been and will remain in my heart forever. I remember our childhood and when you taught me how to ice skate but forever in our later years, as hard as you tried, you couldn’t teach me to dance! It seems I have two left feet! The week I spent with you in Japan was the best week I spent while I was over there in Vietnam. My heart is very heavy because I cannot be at your side today to send you on to a greater place. Say hi to mom and dad for me.
    All my love, Skipper

  4. Sally,

    Junius and I were so glad we got to visit with you over Memorial Day just 2 weeks ago and got to share laughs and old times and a final hug. Remembering being schoolmates, neighbors in Baytown, and that unforgettable weekend in Galveston during Splash Days when I was still a nursing student. Thanks for being in our wedding house party–that day was a blur! Wish we could be there today with your other friends but you are in our hearts and thoughts. Vaya con Dios our friend.

    Barbara and Junius

  5. Sally I will miss you and our lengthy phone calls. We had good times over the 60 years. Both of our parents are now enjoying having you with them. You were my friend since I was 11 years old and I will never forget you. Love, Paula

  6. Sal you were always so vivacious and up to pulling pranks, though your large and infectious smile would even save us from Gram at Parker River. I will always remember our special talks and all the laughter. When you visited all of us in Lake Wales, you and I picked up right where we had left off. You will always be in a very special spot in my heart and a part of my soul, till we are with each other again. Stacey and I will miss you sorely. Give Gram and everyone else a hug from me. I will never forget all the fun and I will love you forever.

  8. You will ALWAYS be a True Sweetheart, Sally. I tried to get in-touch with you on your 75th….but, missed. Mine is tomorrow. I wanted to say a few ‘Sunset’ words with you. In particular, to Thank You for being a Wonderful, patient and loving ‘girl friend’ and neighbor in our HS years. In all of the last +50 or so years you have always been on my mind and in my heart. God Bless You, Darlin’ Sally. XOX

  9. I had the privilege of knowing Sally and we had a few dates. The one I remember clearly was the outing to the Brunson Theater to see the Bolshoi Ballet. That was a real culture awakening for me and I now recall why I enjoyed the recent performance of the Nutcracker so much. Bye Sally, Rest in Peace.
