Post a Condolence

Our sincere condolences to the Salley family.
I’m sure Dick is happy to be back on the farm milking cows with his dad.
And riding off in the Dodge pickup.

I’m thinking about Dick and your family. I remember the family gatherings at the grange and Grandma and Grandpa Salley house. I also have memories of holiday dinners at your farm and Aunt Helen’s farm. Dick was always happy and smiling. And, I remember how proud he was when he retired from milking cows. I pray you will keep the many happy memories in your thoughts during this sad time.

Bless all of you
Janet
