    Our whole family wants to express condolences and tribute to your family and especially to Sally. She and Bob were wonderful neighbors to our parents Bev and Glenn Chapel. Sally was the reason that Glenn was able to go on the first Honor Flight that included the Korean War vets along with our cherished WWII veterans. Over and over Sally took her precious time to volunteer to be a guardian for these heroes. It was truly a highlight in our Dads life and we thank you!! God Bless your family during this sad time, and we rejoice with you in her celebration of life!
    We are all Forever Grateful,
    The Chapel family.

    Heartfelt condolences to the Brown clan. I will always remember our childhood fun times during family visits as kids, writing penpal letters as teens, and then wonderful woman she would become. I wish you all peace and joy in your cherished memories of Sally.

    Sally was very special to our family. She was a best friend to our daughter in a wheelchair. She was a giving person to everyone.

    Even though we only met briefly in Arizona while Sally was at Dan, Sharon and Ryan’s, we feel like we’ve knew her so well because Amber’s family spoke of her so fondly and frequently! We should all strive to make the world better like she did with her volunteer efforts. Embrace the memories. They will bring you comfort!
