    Ms Sally was so sweet. I moved to the neighborhood 4 years ago. I would walk on our neighborhood. Ms. Sally would be out in the yard picking up twins or raking grass. She keep her yard just perfect. I would stop and we talk. She talk about her husband and how they met. Beautiful love story. She talked about Jesus and being saved. I did know her very long. I feel bad that I didn’t check in on her.She was a blessing to me.
