I miss Sally. She was a hoot when playing Rumikub with us . . . digging for that tile she accidentally dropped in the bag! She’s was so proud to wear her Rumikub shirt stating that she “belonged to the joker” while Chuck wore his “joker” shirt. She schooled me on some health issues I inquired about and I am grateful to have known her. I will cherish those fond memories forever! I miss Sally.

Sally and I grew up on a dairy farm and enjoyed many activities together as sisters. She was very nurturing to the animals she raised. This quality carried over in her married life and love of her family. I will miss our weekly phone calls. However, I know she is not suffering anymore and is with our Eternal Heavenly Father. Love and Prayers to Chuck, Mike, Christy and Todd, Nancy (Rainier) Hemmila
