  1. So sorry to hear about Mrs. Sally’s death she was one sweet lady. I was one of her and Mr. John’s caregiver’s awhile back.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss, Miss Sally was a wonderful person. I was one of her care aids and I used to love to sit and talk with her and hear the wonderful stories about her and her husband and her daughters. Your family is in my prayers! Rest easy Miss Sally

  3. Please accept my love and remembrances of Sally who was my first cousin. She has been in my thoughts recently although our paths have not crossed in many years. It is my understanding that she spent time with my parents in the months after my birth as a mother’s helper. Loving stories have been told of that period. She will forever be in my heart even as she is reunited with her Jake. May she rest in peace.

  4. I am heart broken at the passing of my dear friend Sally. But, I know she is now with her loving husband Jake and her children and family that passed before her. She was a smart woman and we shared many things together. I will miss her very much. Blessings and Love to you in heaven Sally and love to your family at this difficult time. ❤

  5. I had the pleasure to have known both Mr. Jake and Sally thru my work! They were truly amazing people and treated me so nice. It was such a pleasure to have known them both and they will definitely be missed in our community! Shane Magic Carpet cleaning.

  6. Mike and I were friends and neighbors of Jake and Sally for over twenty years. They were just wonderful, full of the joy of life. They are both missed very much.
