Always a smile on her face and so fun to be with the two sisters at Christmas..my mom and her sister. They will be missed!

I will always consider it a blessing that Sal was my dear friend. It was truly a joy to be in her company, lots of laughing, good and crazy times. I have missed her compnay since moving to Seattle where she helped me transport my kitties 10 years ago. My sincere condolences to her family and gratitude to Brad for his tender care of her since the very day they met.
