Duane and I would like to extend our sympathy and prayers to the family. She was a very kind, generous, and loving person. God has chosen a very special Angel to sing in his choir.

Dear Promes Family,

Your dear mother sure left an incredible legacy-her family. I treasure the times Joyce would bring me to your home in Wynot. There was always plenty of room for one more at Mrs. Promes' table. She will be missed. Sending prayers.

Amy (Cox) and Jeff Schmid

The loss of someone dear to us is never easy. I hope all the cherished memories that you have of Sally brings you some light during this dark time. My deepest condolences.
