Brenda (Johnson) Opheim says
Aunt Sally you will be missed. The past few years have not been very kind to you and now you are free.
I miss seeing Sarah at Margaret’s House, when I go to visit my husband’s great aunt, but am so happy for her that the memory battle is over.
Margaret’s House lost another long time resident this past week, when Joanne Peterson passed away.
Blessings to your family as you get used to life without Sarah.
May God Bless her memory.
