    This is from Sally's great grandson Jonathon:
    Today the world lost one of the brightest, most loving ladies I know. My Great Grandma Sally was exactly how grandmas are supposed to be. There were all the basic requirements, she made sure every single time we came over she spoiled us like crazy with as much candy as we could eat. She let us get away with stuff we probably shouldn't have done. Typical grandparent traits.

    But she went so far beyond all that. I will always remember the imagination and wonder and positivity that she inspired in me. She reminded me of a kid in the way she looked at the world and how she never took anything too seriously. From when I was in elementary school and she would show me all kinds of cool sci-fi or fantasy books and insist I take all of them, to when I was 16 and she told me how bad she wanted a yellow sports car just like mine.

    I remember sneaking over to her house through her back yard to be greeted by her 2 boxer pups that she had and she'd always get comically angry at them if they barked at us or jumped on us and call them some choice words.

    She honestly NEVER failed to bring a smile to my face. You could always count on her to see the silver lining in any situation.

    There were tons of conversations through my middle and high school years of all my wild dreams that felt unattainable and she never even for a second showed the tiniest bit of doubt that I could do any one of them. She encouraged me to go for it if for no other reason than to piss off the people who said I couldn't.

    I wasn't as good at visiting her as I should have been and I encourage everyone not to take the people you care about for granted but I can tell you she never for a second held it against me and always acted like she just saw me yesterday.

    I will remember and love her forever, more than she probably knows.

    When I make it I'm gonna be thanking you for pouring endless love and faith into me when it mattered most. You were one of my best friends in a time when I felt pretty alone and I can never thank you enough.

    RIP Grandma Sally, I'll see you again someday. <3
