So very sorry to hear of Sally’s passing, she was quite wonderful lady! I had come to know Sally and her family through NWH. No matter how she saw felling, she had a kind word to say. We often spoke about her company. Morreale Sewing machine , how my dad bought my my first Viking sewing machine back in 1972, and it still works perfectly all these years later! No matter what business occupies their space The MORREALE Building will always be an Waltham landmark, always be known as The MORREALE Buliding and the wonderful family that created the legacy. Will miss you beautiful Sally and your family.
Love and hugs to all

I am so sorry to hear that your Mom has passed. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. "Aunt Sally" as we knew her as we were growing up was a wonderful, loving person. I have enjoyed reconnecting with her on FB. She will certainly be missed.
