Messages & Condolences

From D. John Shultz...

Sally was a truly “special friend,” who generously and openly shared her memories, stories, and family genealogy with me on a number of occasions while I was researching family history. She would always bake something special for me to enjoy while we talked – she was a great cook! I’ll miss her and her wonderful smile and hearty laugh! I’m glad that I knew her and I was honored that I could give her a copy of the family history after I had completed writing it. She made it all-the-more fun to do! She was a unique Gem!
