Past Comments

Cathy and Ken Rick

Long-time friend and impressive person, Sally will surely be missed. We remember many fun times together in our early married years. And, Sally was our trusted baby sitter for our young kids. Oh, how they had fun under her watch and spending time with Mike and Andy. In recent years we have gone our separate ways and haven’t had the pleasure of spending enough time with Sally and Rodney, but we have always cherished our friendship. It’s been sad to see how much Sally has had to suffer with ongoing health issues, but comforting to know how lovingly Rodney cared for her through those tough times. No more pain, no more suffering…Rest in peace, Sally and enjoy the comfort of our Lord.
With prayers and hugs for Sally’s family,
Cathy and Ken Rick

Rodney & Family-

Very sorry for your loss.

Often, mourners mean well when they say: “Well, at least you were together for ____ years…” but I don’t feel this is very comforting.

We are never ready for the loss of a loved-one, and every situation is different.

Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and that with time the
pain will lessen- but never completely go away.
Memories of the happy times will help along the way.

May God Bless.

Warm regards,

Pete & Katie Lagerman

Letter from Taylor

Good Evening, I would like to start by thanking everyone who took the time to attend today. Earlier this week while writing this I came across a quote and it gave me the inspiration to write this as a letter to my grandma. So here it goes.
Dear Grandma Sally,

Today I came across a quote and it made me think of you. The quote said “it did not take much to make her happy, a phone call, a card, a visit or a kiss before saying goodbye. She lived to make our lives better and was proud of us all.”

When I read this quote I thought to myself, This is something that I feel describes my grandma sally, although you are only labeled as my grandma you are much more to all of us. When I look at you I feel so much pride that you are not only my grandma but a best friend. I know that I can always trust you to pick me up when I am down and laugh with me until our eyes water with tears.
I want you to know that I look up to you in every way and that you impact all of us as a mom, a sister, a friend, a wife but most importantly someone that I know I can always look to.

From a young age you have had an impact on my life. Whether it be washing my baby while I was asleep, so I wouldn’t scream, teaching me how to drink coffee a little to young, singing high ho from the movie snow white while my mom went to work, or simply making a batch of cookies in the kitchen together. You are someone I feel can always count on to make my day just a little brighter.

I thought I would sit down today and write this letter so you know how much love I have for you and how much I cherish every second we spend together. Until I see you again.
Love Taylor.
