Afterglow by Helen Lowrie Marshall
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways. Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; Of happy memories that I leave when my life is done.
Aunt Sally lived a wonderful full life. I always enjoyed visiting her on Keuka lake.
She always called me Chipperoni. That memory makes me smile.
So sorry for your loss.
I was a next door neighbor for years. I love the whole family and I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my mom a little over 2 months ago so I absolutely know your loss. Let me know if you need anything. Kathy Chizek
My condolences and prayers. Her legacy is her amazing family, who make the world a better place.
There was nothing to not love about Sally. She walked with herself in a very sure way. She was principled and truly cared about the less fortunate. A lady she was. A beautiful lady.
So sorry to hear of your loss, I’m happy that you had all those years with her. Many precious memories were made with your family’s. Prayers being sent, may she rest in peace with her friends and family in heaven ❤️
My Hearfelt Thoughts and Prayers 🙏 Go Out To The Entire Pritchard Families. I Dont Think There Is Anything Worse Than Losing a Mother. I Buried Mine This Passed August. I Most Definitely Feel Your Pain.. Sally Was Like a Second Mom To Me Growing Up With Her Family In The Neighborhood in Webster. She Will Be Sadly Missed By All The Lives She Touched.. May She R.I.P. 😇
We are so sad to hear of Sally’s passing. So many happy memories with her and my Grandpa, and I will always be grateful for them. Much love to all of you! Love, Laura, Mike, Jake, and Ellie Rausch (Red’s granddaughter and Gary’s daughter)
Such an amazing woman who not only loved her family but spread that love to Red’s family. She was a joy to be with and Ben and Melissa looked at her as another Grandmother. We will miss her but have such happy memories to hold on to. Bob and my hearts go out to you for comfort and prayer.
