Our deepest condolences to your family. We were so blessed to have Sandi watch our children, Charlie and Jack. She was the most caring, compassionate and loving person who loved our kids like her own. She was so bubbly and easy to talk to; she even had a smile on her face at 6:15 in the morning! We absolutely love her and will never forget the positive influence on our lives. Emily, Dave, Charlie and Jack Plunkett
