We love Pastor Doug and Sandy so much! A funny memory we have is when the four of us went out to dinner at Logan's, a steak house that has peanuts in little buckets sitting on each table. We would snack on the peanuts while chatting and waiting on our dinner. The rule is that you shell your peanuts and throw the hulls on the floor. Sandy wouldn't do it. She just couldn't bring herself to throw them on the floor! So, I got to thinking..... I'm not going to do it either. Since that time, we haven't. Sandy will be missed greatly. Our memories are so loving, sweet and precious. Our deepest condolences to the entire family.

I remember spending the week with the Klinsings in Zaragoza; Sandy lead us in prayer meeting and was their to Coach us through our paces. She helped us at Barcelona Christian Academy in Home Ec, teaching us dining etiquette and how to make zucchini cream soup. The recipe book I made in her class is still among my prized cookbooks.
When I came back to visit Spain in the 90’s, I had gotten into some poison bull nettles. It was looking bad. She took one look and made me go to the urgent care in Casteldefels. She even paid the $50 bucks. She was always calm and collected. I will miss her.
