So sad to hear of Sandy’s passing. It is hard to capture in words the brilliance of her spirit! She had such a giving heart, a great sense of humor, and a strong love of family and friends. We remained “ like sisters” over the years . Since “ friends are the family you choose”... she and Tony were always a part of our family. Our kids and grand kids have fond memories of Sandy too! She was a wonderful friend to my Mom, when she moved to Houston. She will be missed. So thankful to have had her in our lives. Love, Maggy and Bill
