Harvey's moving tribute is just about the best thing I have ever seen.  I have copied and posted it to friends and read it aloud to my husband.  Harvey has concisely captured the essence of the remarkable person Sally became in one blessed anecdote.  She would have given her crayons to anyone who needed them, and she had a way of knowing just who needed them when.  She was complex in her simplicity.  I did not really understand who she was until I visited her in her sick bed.  From that humble pedistal  she showed us how to live victoriously, surrounded by faithful family who love her and praising God because of who He is.  The world has lost a saint.  The heavens have welcomed an angel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time of loss. Sally will be sadly missed by the staff and children at the Woodburn Christian Children''''s Home. We will always remember her cheerful smile and her giving heart as she reached out to help the children in our care at WCCH. What a special example of Christian Love that Sally''''''''s life story has been to all of our family here.
May God Bless and Keep You Forever in His Care.

When the name leaped out at me from the obit page, I double-checked the age, and thought, that's gotta be her. As an eight-year-old, I had quite a crush on Sally. She was the second-prettiest girl in Miss Kilpatrick's third-grade class, behind Colleen Lamont and ahead of Carol Hooker.
I was the class problem child. I spent a lot of time in the third-grade equivalent of detention, usually for cutting up with Larry Lyons, or fighting with Jack Baumgartner, who kept stealing crayons from my little box of eight. On the last day of school, Sally came up to me and said, "I just wanted you to know, Harvey, that all those times you got into trouble, I don't believe it was always your fault." Then she handed me her box of twenty-four lightly used crayons. I floated home that day.
When the older of my two daughters, who is now well into her twenties, was about to enter her third elementary school in as many years, she expressed doubts that she would be able to make new friends. I told her that she was exactly the kind of girl I would have had a crush on at her age, and then told her my Sally Young story. She dried her tears, gave me a hug, and bounced off to board the bus, her big box of crayons rattling from the depths of her bookbag.
God bless you, Sally Young.

Patient, loving, full of courage and hope, Sally was a testament to humility and faithfulness to her God, her family, her principles, her community. She inspired us to lift up our eyes to the hills... I am so very very grateful for the time I was privileged to spend with her  this last year.  Thank you for the tender care you gave her in her final days. She is safe and free now.

Our hearts go out to you in this season of grief and sorrow and please know that we loved your sister and have such fond memories of her.  She was such a loyal worker in the church for all those many years and we enjoyed some funny moments together when we were doing the youth groups on Wed. after school.
I praise God now for the life of Sally J. Young.

We send our condolences for the loss of your sister, Sally.  It was always a pleasure for her to wait on us at the bank.  Maurie says she was a loyal and trustworthy employee.
She fought the good fight and now she deserves to rest in the arms of Jesus.  What a celebration she and her parents will have.

Sally was a wonderful person-full of joy and upbeat always. She had profound faith and I know she is in the arms of Jesus. The Payne Highschool class of 1964 is hurting. Praying for all her loved ones.
