We really enjoyed the fun and friendship of Jim & Sally at the Runnells Bluegrass Festival each year. Had a lot of good memories. Will miss her.

Sally was my grandmother. I will miss you very much. This photo was taken at one of our family reunions of her and my grandpa.

I spent a lot of time at Elsie and Paul's which was right next door to Jimmy and Sally's. She always had such a great smile! She will be greatly missed!
