Sally was a fixture of the sheriffs office when I first started working with her,, always quick with a story, and a laugh. It was an honor to escort her for her finial ride by her home.

I heart hurts and is heavy at this time. Ms Sally was a beautiful soul inside and out. She dedicated herself to her work in the Corrections Department and was a Mother to many of the women. My deepest condolences go out to her entire family, just know the Good Lord gained an Awesome Angel
