  • So sorry to learn of Sally’s leaving us, but she has moved to a better life, leaving all of her health issues behind. She was a friend of our daughter Lizbeth at church in Westerville so when she moved to Mount Vernon I visited her at her condo, her apartment at ES, and in the care unit at ES. What a lovely, and intelligent, woman she was; I always enjoyed conversation with her. May God’s love, and reflection upon your most precious memories of her, sustain you her family throughout this difficult time.
    With deepest sympathy,

  • Tiffany, Matt, & Greg- I don’t believe I had the honor of meeting your grandmother when we were younger, but I can tell from what I just read that she was a greatly loved, admired, and respected woman.

    We can only count ourselves lucky to have our older generations with us for as long as you had the forever young Mrs. Sally. Thoughts and prayers to your family from all of the McPhails during this time of grief and celebration of a life of love.
