  1. My deepest sympathy to the family at Sally’s passing.Sally and I were good friends at Hinsdale andCentennial Schools. I lived in a hotel my aunt owned on Fourth and Santa Fe; her dad always picked me up and took me to Centennial with Sally. She was so nice and so nice to be with.We lost track of each other when I moved to Central’s district. So Sally and I didn’t graduate together–instead I graduated with your dad’s class of ’51 at Central. But in all these years I have never forgotten Sally. Again my deepest sympathy to all of you.

  2. LeeAnne,Donna,Mike,Diane
