Ms. Sally, as she was known by, left all of us a legacy that will never be forgotten. Her love for the Lord was abundant all throughout her life. In her active church life, she taught Sunday School and worked in the Children’s Church Ministry when she lived in Virginia. She was a member of the Shiloh Free Will Baptist Church, Pinetown, where she was active until her health declined. Ms. Sally will be remembered for a strong faith, and total love and devotion to her family. She will always be known for her love of gardening, planting beautiful flowers, wonderful meals she cooked and the conversations held over a cup of coffee. Her wish for her family and everyone she knew was to accept Christ and live each day for him. As she would say, I want us all together again one day. This is not goodbye, I’m just going home. Love to all, Mom, Grand Mom and friends.
