    Dear Sherry,

    Your mother was loved and will be remembered as a kind and beautiful spirit who was always willing to lend a helping hand. When we were little, she always took to time to see if we wanted to go into Hendersonville or Gallatin with her. I am grateful for every moment that I spent laughing and talking with her.

    I know that there is an empty space in the Church right now because she could always be counted upon to serve the church. In my mind, I can picture her standing as a doorkeeper in heaven welcoming those who come into the presence of the Lord. Heaven must be a happy place because it is there that we get to be reunited with all those souls who have passed before us. Sally has transformed into a new body and able to visit with her mother, sister, and brother in a new home where there perfect peace.

    Miss Sallie was a customer at Citizens Bank in Hendersonville Tn and I worked there with Bill Burgess. We all loved Miss Sallie and her wonderful personality. She would have everyone in bank laughing before she left. The world would be a much better place if everyone loved like Miss Sallie. May God Bless Her Sweet Memory and the Precious Memories she shared so lovingly. My sympathy to her family.
