Image Sally's Prom Dress

Not very many girls keep their prom dresses for 50 years, but some of us do. Mine is still wrapped in tissue paper in my cedar chest, but Sally...oh just wait till you hear what she did with hers.

What a wonderful story to share with us all ! The prom dress does make a beautiful lampshade! Sally had a four legged with her even way back then and it is a lovely picture of Sally in her youth.

You were a pretty teenager.

I love how you kept it all those years, and what a transformation! The dress is now beautiful, and a reflection of you, and the life you lived.

Smudge (the cocker spaniel) lived to be 19. Thanks so much for enjoying this and thanks to Sharon for putting some of my memories down.

Best wishes to all of you.

How bittersweet and how beautiful the shade is. How hard it must be for her family to miss her. It brought tears to my eyes. I miss Sally Sun too.

Thanks Shar!

They are setting up for a new machine at work.
The multi-stage concrete base pour is now completed.
Thought of Sally every day as I watched the progress.

I get the EKB weather update in my emails. At the bottom of each post they ask for weather watchers and I never fail to think of Sunfarm.

You know, Cheryl, the very same thing happens to me.
She's always around, I think, reminding us.

Everytime we have a storm, I think 'Don't wait for the storm to pass, dance in the rain!'

She was a very special woman.
