Milan and Children

It's with sadness that I and my wife, Carol McClellan, heard about your wonderful spouse and mother passing away this week. She was always a delight to be around with: a great coworker at Fort Jackson, neighbor in Forest Lake, and a coworker for many years with my wife, Carol. She will be dearly missed by all.
Sincerely, Daniel and Carol

I worked with Sally at CC Pinckney Elementary School. The first day I met her, she greeted me with a big hello and her beautiful infectious smile, which I will always remember. I loved to hear her laugh because it would always put a smile on my face. She was a phenomenal teacher and coworker. She left footprints on my hear that will stay forever. My condolences to the family, I know she Cwill be sorely missed.

We could not have asked for a more wonderful neighbor as Sally! I will miss our chats in the street - catching up on the news of each other's children and grandchildren. I know how devoted Sally was to her husband and her family. She will be missed by all of us. Our condolences to your family.

I had the pleasure of working with Sally for many years at C C Pinckney Elementary School on Fort Jackson, SC. Sally was an outstanding teacher who showed had so much empathy for military parents. Years ago, after I had given birth to my son, she and her daughter Jane came and babysat one Saturday so that my husband and I could have an evening out. That was the kind of person she was...a generous, giving spirit always laced with a big smile and lots of laughter.
Our condolences to the family. May God grant you His peace and comfort in the days ahead.

I am so sorry for the sad loss of Sally. I enjoyed seeing Sally for many years at Forest Lake Presbyterian and in our PEO chapter. Sally was always upbeat, friendly, and such a lovely person with a wonderful family. I was privileged to teach her son Derek at Richland Northeast High School and to be church friends with John and Natalie and Will. Sally 's sister Linda Jackson and I taught together at AC Flora years ago. Our families have many connections. i know you will miss Sally terribly, and her many friends and i will also. My condolences go out to all of you as well as my prayers.

Colonel O'Bradovich,

You won't remember me, but I was one of the many minions under you in the ARCOM back in the 80's. That is almost forty years ago, meaning time flies, which also sadly means loved ones leave us. I saw your wife's obituary in the Newsless Courier, and I want to extend my condolences. I had met Mrs. O'B several times when we had those Dinings-In. I am old enough to know that there is really nothing I can say to assuage your grief, but I hope that just knowing others care provides you comfort in the moments of darkness. I hope you can accept that the deep sorrow you have now is the reflection in a mirror of the great happiness you had in your marriage and life when your wife was alive. That is what can console you.

Col O'B, we were saddened to learn of Sally's passing.. Cheryl and I remember speaking with both of you during physical therapy...you with a knee replacement and me a hip. She was a wonderful lady and partner with you in life. She is with the Lord now. Cheryl and my thoughts are with you and your family my friend and former leader. God bless.
