What a great neighbor and such a warm, friendly person. As one of the neighborhood kids, I remember Sandy as always providing a welcoming home for us to play and, as we grew older, meet. Heartfelt condolences to Peter, John and Robert and their families on your sad, sad loss. May your mom's kindness ever be a comfort for you.

Sandy was a neighbor of mine for many years here on Mohawk Road in Somerset. She was a very refined, quiet and dignified woman, always asking how I was as well as my family. She was a good friend of my wonderful wife, Hummy, who passed away more than five years ago. May she rest in peace for eternity. She will be missed.

So sad to hear of Sandy’s death. I have many fond memories of being on the boats with both of our families. Weekends on Cuttyhunk, time in Menemsha... May her memory be a blessing 🦋
