Dearest Family, what a joy Sister Sallie was!! And she could be so funny--fussing at Davis to hush or laughing with her sisters when they were all together. What a blessing she has been to so many and I am so thankful I was one of the blessed. Now she is worshiping with the Lord while Sonny shows her all around gloryland!! Hated to miss her Goung Home Celebration but was just too sick. I know all of you will miss her till we meet her and all our loved ones over there. Peace and Comfort to all the family, her children, especially the sweet sisters!!!
