  • Sorry I missed the memorial service. Got the news too late or would have been there. Speaking of being there, Sally was always there, out front when things were happening in those early days at the Peace Corps. She was my boss at the Peace Corps after returning from two years in Colombia. RIP Sally. You will be missed.
