Even though I haven't seen Sally in a few years it saddens me to hear of her passing. She was not only a client of mine but I always felt we were friends. We used to have the most delightful conversations as I did her hair. My deepest sympathies to Sally's family.

Aunt Sal will be missed by many. Our deepest condolences to my cousins and their families.

I always marveled at how pristine everything about Aunt Sal was. Her home. Her hair. And her calm manner. Even her genuine and full laugh!

My Mom brought me some glass pebbles that she had. I placed them in a white candy dish that I have from her sister, my Grandma.

Love to all....
