God put Sally in our life just as I was about  to go AWOL -- I didn't know it then but that's what happened.  Sally was there to watch over my children, Mike & Misty, when I was absent.  She genuinely loved and cared for them -- she provided love & understanding, guidance, adventures with her family, even food when they didn't have any at home.  I continue to be eternally grateful for all that she so freely and generously gave to us .... and so many others.

Love & Hugs to you Sally in Heaven.

I met Sally on New Year's weekend '95-'96.  I had heard about this Sally lady for the 4 years that I been with my husband - and knew that she was special beyond words.  So on 12/31/95, this little lady walked into the house on Opal Cliffs Dr with her arms outstretched to my 8 week old baby, Emily.  We hadn't been introduced, but I figured this must be Sally - and I instantly handed over the most precious thing in my life.  1995 - not even 20 years ago.  But Sally (and Grandpa Terry too!) became such instant parts of the soul of our family.   I realize that people reading this and Sally's FB page might think that she was treacly sweet and angelic.  NO WAY!!  She was the warmest, most open and accepting human I ever met but whose sense of humor and "devilment" made her the most wonderfully "real" person I ever met.  My husband had the blessing of Sally as a second mom growing up in Cupertino.  My children had her as a wonderful 3rd grandma.  But I had her as the most pure member of my family in every sense of the word.  There is no one in the world whose respect I will be more grateful for than that of Sally Beeson Brennan.   The love goes without saying - Sally's love was unconditional and all-encompassing.  But her respect was the best gift anyone could ever receive.    It has given me a personal sense of peace and wholeness that I don't think many people have the joy of experiencing.   Sally would not have approved of us thinking that the world was a lesser place with her not in it - but I can't help but feel that way.   Far too few Sallys in this world - how lucky I was to have had her for as long as I did.

I lie here thinking about all the times you hit me, all the times you hugged me, all the time you loved me.... And the many times I didn't deserve some or all of these. You were determined to point me in the right direction, sometimes dragging me down the right path and because of you my life has been full of wonders. You've changed the last 28 years of my life and it was all for the better! I'll miss hearing your voice, your laughter and your wisdom... "You're a wonderful lady and I love you"!

To my sister/sister-in-law, Sally:

I cannot imagine not being able to phone you, visit you, go to the nursery with you, laugh, argue and laugh some more. I can;t imagine not seeing that mischevious smile and your complete joy with the little ones.

You have been in my life such a long time and will be in my heart longer.

Peace, my love, peace, laughter, joy.

Love you and will remember you, always

I once told Sally that I never liked my name but I had to change my viewpoint after knowing her. Her response was a deep and loving look while saying "I've never met a Sally that wasn't special". She had a way of finding something so unique and fitting to make each person feel special. I've never forgotten that moment or the moment I first saw Sally. She took my breath away because she was so beautiful with a glow that practically burst out of her skin. Her physical presence will be missed but she is stlll here in so many ways.

Stand down, St. Peter! This one has earned a free pass...

Words cannot express how much I will miss my mother, and they also cannot express the gratitude I have for the very important life-lessons she taught me. #1 is the lesson that everyone deserves to be loved...
