Dear Julie & Family, I was deeply saddened to read of the loss of your Mother. Sally Ruffner was one of those “swim team” Mom’s that were like a 2nd Mom-always caring and kind, foremost. We all had a special connection through our youthful days spent together, and your Mother was such a gentle and guiding example of goodness. My sympathies to all.
