Jeff - my deepest condolences. I picture your mom bringing the doughnuts out to the fields at Niles West and always with a smile on her face. She was always a big supporter of you and our teams. May your memories of her be a blessing.

Jeff, Tammy, Linda & families-
I am so very sorry to hear of Sallie's passing. I have so many fond memories of her & your dad from the days of our youth. Warm, kind, giving, and beautiful; that was your mom. Just thinking about her now, makes me smile! She was one of a kind. A lovely lady. May you all hold her memories close to your heart, now and forever...

I had the pleasure of having 4 grandparents in my life and I was lucky enough to have them through most of my young adult life. Little did I know that after they passed, I’d be fortunate enough to gain a 5th grandparent through marriage.

Mama was a spark. She loved me and I loved her. Not just because I married into the family but because we had a real connection. I love her always and will forever miss her.

With all the love,

-The kid from Kentucky
