Sandra is missed by all that knew her. She sat at our table for meals and she always matched her jewelry to her clothes - she left an EVERLASTING memory as she was a very caring person. She talked, often, about her Mom - and now they
can be happy together. She really was a special lady! I will miss Sandra!

I've known Sandy for over 40 years and first met her at Trinity Presbyterian Church. She was always a very sweet lady and am glad I got to visit with her last fall at Sunnyside.
Happy Dreams Sandy
