Rich, Gina, Michele and David, we are so sorry for your loss! We’ve lost a wonderful Wife, Mother, Sister and Cousin. I have such great memories growing up with the Porters and spending holidays and birthdays at Aunt Meme’s house. Butler Street was like our second home. It was a place filled with love and Sally was a big part of that. She had an infectious laugh and a marvelous sense of humor that was comfortable poking fun at herself. She will be sorely missed. May the Lord bless her and hold her in the palm of His hand. Love and prayers to you all!

Natalie & Mark Kline
