Sally was my mother-in-law. It was obvious early on that she was a wonderful mother to her children, as well as her numerous grandchildren, who were her world. I dont know many women who thoroughly enjoyed taking such good care of her family as Sally. If you wonder what a virtuous woman look like, look no further. She will be sorely missed by many.
