I am so sorry that I did not know of Sally's passing. I met Sally in Valley Forge at the Radisson when she owned the gift shop and I was the Sales Manager for Lily Langtry's Dinner Theatre. As time goes by, as it always does, I ended up in Horse Cave KY as Box Office Manager at Kentucky Rep, and was thrilled to learn that Sally had moved to this great little town too! We had many fond memories of Valley Forge and it was nice to see her always volunteering at the theatre, helping our theatre cats, and always having an energetic smile on her face. It was a blessing to have known her and I am glad our paths crossed so many times over the years.

I was so sad to hear of Sally's passing. She was such a sweet, sweet lady. I always enjoyed her puppets @ church on Halloween & on other occasions. She loved Horse Cave Baptist Church & loved the people there, & we loved her as well. May God bless you & give you peace & comfort during this time of loss.
