Sallie was the first volunteer to come aboard during my time at Triune. She led with her heart and her head, and soon I trusted her as much as any staff member. She taught me a lot about how to deal with people, how to make them feel welcome and loved and secure in that place. At one point, she began worshiping with us, though she admitted she was leery of a "woman preacher." After her first service, she passed me at the door. "Well, the ceiling didn't fall in," she said. I treasured Sallie's involvement during my entire 15 years at Triune. She brought the kind of love and respect for our homeless citizens that became our cornerstone. I will always love her for that.

When my late Husband and I moved to Greenville, the first Neighbor we met was Mr. Bill Campbell; shortly thereafter, we also met his Companion, Mrs. Sallie Eskew. We saw them often; When my Husband was in hospice in Simpsonville, Sallie and Bill came and visited with me there. After his passing, the two of them always remembered me on holidays, which was so kind, as I have no relatives left. After a few months, I decided to volunteer at Triune Mercy Center, so I would see Sallie on Wednesdays, as she volunteered as Receptionist. Sallie was not an easy person to get to know, but over time, I came to know she was a good, kind, Christian, in the true sense of the word "Christian". And strong ... despite serious medical concerns, Sallie carried on with stability and dignity. I am honored to have been able to know her; she followed the Lord in her ways, and now I'm sure she is united with Him.

So sorry for your loss. I didn't know Sallie real well, I had only met her a few times. I felt like I knew her because of her dear friend Patsy Watkins. Patsy talked about what all they would do together on their trips they would take, so I felt like I know her. I knew about her struggles that she had and prayed for her often. I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you all during this sad time, but the memories she left behind will never be forgotten. Just know that she is free from all she had to endure during these last years and God has her in his hand.

It was my honor and pleasure to become acquainted with Sallie later in life as a member at Triune Mercy Center. Sallie was a wonderful woman, devoted Christian, and had a commitment to help the less fortunate through her volunteer work at Triune Mercy Center. I was very fortunate to have made her friendship and I will truly miss her. Sallie Rest In Peace my friend! Sincerely, Malcolm “Brooks” Carter

I am so sorry to hear this news. I worked with Sallie at Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina for many years and actually took her position when she retired. She was an awesome woman who taught me so much and was such a good friend. I will truly miss her.
