    I was very sad to hear the news about Sally. We first met at Provincial 4-H Selections when we were 16 (and travelled on the same trip to Vancouver). We were also classmates in Home Ec at the U of S. Sally was a dynamic, determined go-getter, and I will always remember her laugh and outgoing nature. My heart goes out to you all. May happy memories help you through this very difficult time.

    Roger, Chantal and Natalie - We are deeply saddened to hear of Sally's passing. She will be fondly remembered by her Eastern cousins from Ontario. No matter how busy she was with her chores, Sally always took the time to take us horseback riding, play with us in the doll house, give us piano lessons, and play croquet. Our yearly visits were always special. God love you all, Karen, Jodie and Uncle Lloyd
