  1. Joan Bloodworth :

    I met your Mum when she was Tony Sannna’s secretary in the late 1960’s. I was dating a man much like your father, David, so Sally was helpful with good advice! After I married Jim, the four of us shared amazing times together. Though Sally stubbornly refused to mess with the computer, she simply phoned regularly so we kept in close touch. Both your parents were wonderfully congenial, exceptional personalities — remembering them will always my heart. God bless all of you.
