Sincere sympathy on your loss. I taught with Sandy at Stephen Bell and we were part of the group that got our Masters together. For a while, we each taught first grade with classrooms next door. At that time, she confided some unusual symptoms she was experiencing. I still remember her expression when I told her it sounded like she was pregnant! She was! Soon enough, Matthew joined Robert as her favorite topics of conversation.

Sandy was my “older” sister and I couldn’t have ask for a better example of what a Christian should live like. Oh sure we had are differences when we were young but that’s only normal. There is no way I can express my love for her and how much I will miss her weekly phone calls.

Sandy and her family traveled to Hawaii one summer. Much to our surprise our family was there to. We had a fun time sharing memories of our time together.
We worked together at Stephen Bell until she retired. She was one of the nicest and kindest ladies.

I worked with Sandy many years at Stephen Bell Elementary. She was intelligent, kind, and genuinely cared about her students. She influenced many lives over the years. She will be missed.
