Sandra and I enjoyed a number of dinners at the Luby's cafeteria near the corporate office. She and I would get to catch up and talk about the good things in the world. She was always a positive light in this world.

I will never forget all the Holidays that Sandra would come over to my Nina and Grandad's (Warren and Merna Albertson) and spend the afternoon with us. She was always a presence when we were spending time with my grandparents. I loved her fun colorful glasses and her stimulating conversation. We love and will miss you Sandra. Love Paul, Marianne, Joey, and Olivia Albertson

My sister and I loved our mother's "Boiled Custurd". We would see which one of us would get the first taste. We would gather in the kitchen and so look forward to see mother preparing it. It was a very happy time for all three of us. I will "never forget" those lovely moments with our mother and our special sister time during the annual Christmas holidays.

With Love,
Your Sister Marilyn
