To LaMont and family
I was so very sorry to learn of Sandra's passing. My heartfelt sympathy to all of you in this your great loss. I first met Sandra many years ago when we were students at Dalhousie. Sandra was focused, friendly, quiet and a genuinely good person. Throughout the many years since university I have had the occasional good fortune to speak with Sandra. I can honestly say she remained a good, respectful and thoughtful lady. To all of you who are grieving I hope that you find comfort in fond memories and in the many promises of our God!
