So sorry to hear! We always enjoyed our interaction with Sally and Joe. The “cabin” will always be a fine memory each time we drive by! Our most sincere sympathies to you. Dave & Linda Sudol, St Martins Point

Condolences to Jason, Carl, Kelly and all of Sally's family. I can't believe Sally is gone. I will really miss her. I bowled with Sally for many years. What a blast we had. She had the best sense of humor. I like to share a funny story. At the beginning of every bowling season we would start up a pot, each week we put money in it, we called it our limo money. On the last night of bowling we would divvy it up and go to the Casino in Mt. Pleasant. (We always thought we would rent a limo so we didn't have to drive. But instead we would decide to gamble it at the casino. We never got that limo ride). We usually took two cars. but this one time we decided to all cram into my car. Sally jumps into the back of my hatch back. The tallest girl among us. Her knees bent up to her chin, laughing all the way there and later all the back home. We sure had a lot of fun. Bowling will never be the same! Kathy and Mike Meehleder
