Sorry to hear of Sandy's passing. I worked with her at GTE Sylvania for many years. I have one of her paintings that she gifted me for a birthday. Even though we didn't keep in touch after retirement whenever i look at the painting I remember the kindness of her heart and bubbly personality. I was blessed to know her.
