Joanne and Family, I am so sorry to hear about Sally's passing. I really enjoyed years singing with her in the St. Joseph's/Holy Family Choir so much!!! For the year my wife, Claire, also was in the choir, Sally was SO welcoming to Claire and they were able to share a lot of laughs together as part of the Soprano section. Sally was a TRUE Christian and I know she is enjoying seeing her loving son, Scott, up in heaven with God welcoming her there....

Dear Joanne & David:
Living in California I didn't get to visit with Aunt Sal much. I do remember the trips that she and Uncle Louie and your family made out here. And out last visit when Kim and I were back East. I will remember her joyfulness and smile, always smiling. She was my last Aunt. She can now be reunited with the rest of the family. I am sure they are welcoming her now.
Love Carmella Angioline Cocco

We are so fortunate to have spent the last few years back here in Western New York and to have had so many wonderful visits, lunches, political discussions, and most of all, laughs, with Aunt Sally…who will remain in our hearts as our loving, sassy aunt with the infectious laugh. We love her dearly.

Beautiful video tribute and history. Our paths crossed as Sally was on the National CDA Board and I was just an up and comer. Her infectious smile and laugh always made the event special. She loved her faith and family. May you have many memories to treasure in the days ahead. Blessings to her memory and each of you. Lois Nelson, Minnesota

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. She was one of kind and I will always remember her fondly. My sincerest sympathy to all of you during this difficult time and please know that I holding you all close in my heart.
So very sorry for your lose, but now she is at peace and with her family that has passed. You are a wonderful daughter, and she knew that and cherished you and your family. I have so very fond memories when we were younger going to each other houses, and your mom always making us laugh or doing something silly. You, Scott, and your parents are part of my happy childhood memories. Hold dear to those memories, she was a great lady!
Lots of memories of Sally come to mind. When I was a kid, she would come to my house with Aunt Eleanor and Aunt Jane for my Mom's Friday night dinners. Oh the stories they would tell and the laughter I would hear coming from that kitchen :)
Now she's forever at peace with her loved ones and friends she's missed for so long. May you always keep those memories close to your hearts.
Dear Joanne, we have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Sally - all the fun family times we've shared together through the years. We will always remember her with love. She will be missed. She is our last aunt to leave this earth - it's an end of an era. She now joins her beloved family in heaven. Love, Phyllis and Jim
