  1. Returned from a trip to learn of Sally’s passing. With a heavy heart, I extend my sincerest condolences to Sally’s family. As many of you know, Sally was a dear and special friend who will be deeply missed. We met when I was an instructor at SJCC and over the many years together we established and grew a close friendship. Sally was the sweetest, most compassionate person I’ve ever known; always with a warm welcome, cute smile, teasing wit and incredible hugs. She had a beautiful kind-hearted, gentle spirit and a trustworthiness that made it easy to share precious time together and communicate intimately about all that was important to us. Above everything, family meant the world to Sally. She would always focus on her family and “grandbabies” – sharing stories so proudly. It was her whole life! And now, my dearest friend, with so many fond memories, may you rest in peace in the hands of God. And I will pray that should I ever be so fortunate as you to go to Heaven, I’ll come looking for my forever friend and your irresistible hugs.

  2. Growing up just wouldn’t have been the same without you in my life. Rose was right – we all have a purpose in life and yours was to make everyone’s life better – and that you did. You were one of the most amazing people I have ever met. You were a wonderful mother – not just to your biological children – but to all of the extended children you had – I am grateful to have been one of the fortunate people whose life you touched. None of us were perfect – god knows we all made our share of mistakes growing up – but you never judged us – you loved us for who we were no matter what!! You were so much more than just one of my best friends mothers – I loved sitting and talking to you – I could tell you anything. I love you Mom Caron. You are sorely missed. I know you will be guiding all of us through the rest of our journey. You will forever be in my heart. RIP
