Sincere sympathy to the children and grandchildren of Sandy King. We only knew her for a short time, but the impression she left with us has lasted through the years. She was a great inspiration to all who knew her and lived a life pleasing to God. May God be with you all at this time and in the days ahead.

Sandy was filled love and kindness & will always be a part of some of my favorite memories. She touched my life in so many ways . . . sometimes as a friend; sometimes as a sister; sometimes as a mother. She had the “gift” of knowing just what a person needed . . . just at the right time. Know that the mark your mom left is a great one, and because of this she will never really be gone. At times, your grief will be unbearable. When those times come, look inside your heart, it is there you will find all the happy memories of the love & happy times you shared. I pray you find comfort in each other as a family & in God’s love.
