  1. My sympathies go out to you Ted & your family. I got to know Sally more when we were snow birds at Lake Seminole in Florida. Sally will be missed by me & many others.

  2. Condolences to the Householder family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.
