Sandy was my friend and soul mate since we were in 1st grade with Mrs. Ruth Cable at Rinard Grade School. Fast forward we stayed in touch ever since. Sandy had an infectious smile and laugh, plus love of music and song. She was a gift to the world, and she was my friend, who will be missed by many. God bless, my dear.

Sandra was a light in our lives. She simply brought joy to our ViaQuest Hospice team and to the residence at Water's Edge Village. As her Chaplain, I will never forget swing dancing with her, painting, and sitting quietly, listening to one of her riveting stories. To her family, we are praying for you. To friends, we share the sadness of this loss and look forward to seeing Sandra again. Jesus was absolutely at the center of her dear sweet heart. Pastor Ron
