    Sally was my dear friend and “girlfriend”. We would sit out on her porch and sip wine while we giggled about the many silly things there are in life. We both love birds and the sun, so we would sit in the sunshine and listen to the birds while admiring the flowers. Sally was so sociable–her job as a greeter at the St. Paul’s Mountain Winery was a role she treasured. She wore her name badge with pride! She tended to the roses as much as she tended to the “new friends” she met there every day. She was my “partner-in-crime” as we schemed about all the details of a surprise 90th birthday party for her long time friend and companion, Nick Esposito. I remember the grin on her face when she saw the look of surprise on Nick’s face. I loved that grin so much!
    In her final days it was my honor and privilege to advocate for the very best health care we could attain for her. As part of “team Sally” all those who loved her worked tirelessly to assure that she was comfortable and surrounded by love. I will miss my girlfriend so much but I know she is home with God and all the angels. I love you Sally. Love always, Eileen

    I was so blessed to know Sally, or as we called her, Grandma Sally. She brought so much joy back to my Grandfather Nick and so quickly became a part of our family. We were so incredibly lucky to have her for the time we did, and I will always be grateful for the love she shared with us. She was such a genuinely sweet and caring person who loved animals and will be missed so much. We love and miss you Grandma Sally!!
