    We are so sorry for your loss. Sally was an awesome, amazing woman. She was someone that when we were young you could talk to her about anything and not worry about it. I know that Tom Jr and us drove her crazy sometimes but she never said anything. I will always remember Ireland and the great times we all had. You guys are an awesome family and we will always have a special place in our hearts for Tom,Sally, and Tom Jr. And all your family. I’m so sorry that we will not be able to make the service tonight but our thoughts and prayers are with you guys. Chris & Krisann

    We did not know each other when we first met at St Catherine’s School of Nursing, but soon became fast friends . Our Class reunions were infamous events that always kept us wanting and going to more reunions just to keep up with the Dowd family and of our other alumni families.
    I will remember Sally and Tom in my daily prayers.
