I also remember "growing up" at Adams' home. Sally was so much fun and I had lost track of her over the years. So sorry for all of our loss. Love and prayers, Cindy

Our hearts are with you all today as we remember what a beautiful person Sally was. We have many warm and funny memories of "growing up" at the Adams house.

With love,
