Sandy, Marcia, Sharon and Bonnie. Please except our sincere sympathy for the loss of your mother. Keep your good memories close to your heart. We know she will be missed by your families.
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!
