  1. Mark and family, I do not know all of your family but have spoken to you many times. Kay and Sally bought my late husband\’s mothers home on Tennessee View Street here in Franklin. We enjoyed many good times with both of them. Wonderful people! I was glad to see Sally move to the apartment on Meadowbrook and she seemed to feel very comfortable there. We kept in touch for a good long while and had lunch several times. I am truly sorry I did not know Sally was ill for I would have called and talked with her. I will miss her. She was very proud of her family. God rest her sweet soul. Robin

  2. Sally, dear friend, I have missed you. Even when you were so sick, after Kay died, you always had a sweet smile for every one. You were always a very special lady, and have many friends in Franklin who will never forget you. Every time that whistle blows at the lumber yard, I remember how angry it made Kay, and how you soothed him with your special kindness, and smile. Love, Claire.
