Auntie Sal was a beautiful cheerful person who believed laughter was the best medicine in life. She lived life with a smile and an unconditional love for those around her. I remember her serving me "nectar" (as she called it) always with a smile from those Tupperware glasses of hers on a hot summer day when we came out to the farm to visit (my brother and I always suspected it was just Koo laid). Auntie Sal not only loved singing and playing music (as everyone knows) but more importantly loved to sing hymns to a loving God and her Savior Jesus Christ. I know she is rejoicing with the Angels in that heavenly choir right now and I look forward to the day when I can stand next to her in that choir and sing praises of our wonder Lord and Savior. Her presence will be missed by all but her memories will live on in the hearts of all those who lives she has touched including my own. She always referred to me fondly as a "little rascal" (which I am sure I earned). I will always remember her call me that . . .

I pray her family will be comforted during this time of loss but please know she is in a better place. No need to say good bye . . but see you later
Auntie !! Love you !!

So sorry to hear that Sal is no longer with us. My mother Esther loved her so very much and when I came home to visit there was often a laughter filled meal after church on Sunday. Being with Sal was like sunshine! My condolences to each of you who are part of her lovely family.
