  1. So sorry to hear that Sally has passed away. We were friends in elementary school, but I had lost touch with her.

  2. Mother & I were so saddened by reading of Sally’s death. The last time we talked with her at length was when my father Dr. A.G. McGill was in St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan for the last time. He died in Oct. 2002. Sally was there to visit an in law. She looked lovely and was just beginning to show signs of disability. We traded contact info but after Dad died I spent much more time with Mom. No more visits in person, sadly. Mom is 96 y.o. in Generations nursing care in Bryan & I have also moved back to Bryan. We would enjoy visits with Sally’s friends & survivors. Much love.

    • I am also a long close friend of Sally Ann’s. I was devastated when I read this obituary. Can you tell me where she is I turned or how to reach Billy Bob Lane. Much thanks David Harrigan email or 979-575-5595.

  3. See above. I must have mis typed. Ruth McGill. Will there be a memorial or funeral? When & where?

  4. For some reason I started thinking about Sally today. I looked her up and am saddened to learn of her illness and death. Sally and I had some great times in Jr high in Bryan. We moved in 8th grade. We wrote for some time then lost touch.
