    Sally has been my friend for over 50 yrs., she has gone through a lot of health issues but always was a happy person. We had a lot of good times together and I am going to really miss her laughter and good times we shared.

    Oh my sweet Mom. What a journey this has been. You are a warrior! We made it together pretty darn far. You didn't give up but your body did. We got the most out of it, I can assure you. I'm so proud of you. I don't think I know anyone that could have endure all the health issues thrown your way all the while smiling. Not many get a a second chance for life, God gave you that in 2006! You never took that for granted and you LOVED living. God Bless your donor for that gift! For all who read this, a new heart, doctors and medicines did not keep my Mom alive but it was the love to live with six very special people, Michael, Nicholas, Tyler, Colin, Joey and Jordyn. I hold all of you in my heart as you 6 gave her LIFE. She wouldn't have made it as far as she did without the will to live to be with all of you! Go rest now, no more dialysis, needles, doctors. Just Rest! I love you more than anyone in this world could ever image loving someone! Love you forever, Laura
