I’m so glad I got to reconnect with Sandra through Facebook. Our families grew up across the street from each other in Brookhaven, Pennsylvania. I admired Sandra’s love for her husband, children & grandchildren as well as the love for her family. My thoughts & prayers are with you all as you try and continue on without the matriarch of the family. Life isn’t fair. May your memories of happier times stay close to your heart. Keep Sandra’s memory alive by telling her grandchildren what a loving hardworking woman she was.

Sandra was a great friend and coworker. I had the pleasure of working with her at the hospital and several years ago at Merry Maids. She will be genuinely missed. My sincere condolences and prayers to her family.
