I just learned of your loss today. I worked with her at the Northeastern Center and it was obvious that she cared very much about each person she helped and met. Mary Smith

I worked with Sandy at Northeastern Center and I will always remember her for her support and friendship when I was going through some health issues a few years back. She was a wonderful person. I am so sorry for your loss.

Sandy, you were such a genuinely beautiful person and friend. I treasure all the good memories growing up with you and graduating from high school with you, and sharing Christmas cards and occasionally a visit over the years. My deepest condolences to your loving husband Larry and dear daughter and sisters Connie and Marilyn and all the extended family. I am sure all considered you a person of integrity and depth, smart and dependable, a person of faith, a friend to all. You, Sandy, will be greatly missed from this earth. Now may your soul rest with the angels and all in heavenly high. Until we meet again, you are in my thoughts and prayers, as well as all your family. Thanks for the memories... a slumber party at your house, bananas with raspberries that was such a treat, and lunch when I was back in Ohio, and the good phone conversations. I also want to congratulate you on all your dedicated work. You certainly touched many lives there too.
Love you, Sandy, and "take care" until we meet again!
