Sandy was one of the kindest and loving people I have ever known. She had beauty inside that radiated through to everything she did. She was like a second Mom to me for most of my life. She was a wonderful loving grandmother to my children and she will be missed by us all. Our deepest sympathy to the family. Mike and I are praying for you all.

Sandra was a dear friend to both of my parents. She worked with dad for many years. After his passing she was a comfort to mom. They enjoyed talking very much. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to her family. John and Aris Tilley

Ive known Ms Sandra my whole life, my dad is Ray Brown from SCT. When mom died she and Ms Doris Weir became my moms. I love her dearly and always remember her smiling face. She always made you laugh. I know there's been a big reunion in heaven.When dad died back in June she snuck in the funeral home before i got there so i didnt get to see her, i hated i didn't see her but shes always been in my thoughts and prayers.I know things will not be the same without her, im so very sorry for your loss, my heart is broken, she was precious ! Much love to all of you.

Sandy was always so kind. my earliest memories, though, were of how stunningly beautiful she was. it took my growing up to see that she was that beautiful inside, too. she always came to our hot summer family reunions,no matter how hard the physical struggle. that meant a lot to me. forever loved, and remembered, kind, cousin sandy

I have some great memories of Ms.Sandra. I was very fortunate to take care of her at Life Care of East Ridge and she was super funny and really sweet I use to love and hug on her all the time when she was happy and when she was sad and her family was just as sweet as she was. My heart goes out to the entire family she will be truly missed. Heaven has gain a beautiful Angel. I love you Sandra Durham.
