    Julie and Melvin,
    I truly miss Sally's wonderful texts with updates of the WI weather and what the grandkids were up to - and Melvin's current work schedule. Oh, and she might have just baked a loaf of beer bread. She called me a week or so before she passed and we talked for a long time. Was so good to catch up and it was my last opportunity to hear her voice. I loved the person Sally was - genuine, loyal and good to everyone. I will truly miss seeing her in Sep. We had planned to get together for lunch as we always did when I was back home. May God bless her soul and let my beautiful friend rest in peace.
