Sally was a much-loved Memaw to our three youngest as their babysitter for years. She agreed to care for our oldest daughter, Katie, born with a heart defect, and I know is already enjoying a joyous reunion with her and Pap, with Jeremy and Lilyanna, and other loved ones. Later, Keri and Robert loved her and Neil as grandparents more than caregivers. Keri has a special place in her heart for her Memaw, and I know she will never forget her. Every time I fix brown beans and cornbread, I hear, "They're just not like Memaw's!" I am grateful for Sally's life and love, and am glad she is at rest. Prayers for all.
