  1. Wow, what an enduring friendship. We met and remained friends for over 70 years. She was a kind and gentle soul and I’m proud to have known her through all the phases of her life. I know she is enfolded in Rich’s loving embrace once again. I will miss you Sal!

  2. When I learned to golf, Sal was a member of our fivesome on the golf course. Steady-Eddie, we called her. She never missed the fairway with her shots. Short and straight with nerves of steel. We always enjoyed her company and had many years of enjoyment at Valley Ridge and then Elbow Springs. What a wonderful lady. I’m so glad I got to know her.

    Rest easy Sal.

    The entire Williams family is sad to hear of Sally’s passing. We had many years of wonderful memories with the Carmine and Boyd families. I was so glad I had a chance to chat with Sally at her brother Dave’s Funeral.
