  5. When I met Sally I didn’t think I was going to like her, she was so bold and in your face. Turns out she became one of my best friends. Our friendship was short but deep. We were a great team and I’m going to miss so much about her.

I love you Sally and I know you are resting in the Lords arms with your Mama.
