I met Sandy quite recently as a member of the Patient and Family Advisory Council at Mondanock Community Hospital. I was always impressed by her knowledge, her compassion and her grit!! She will be sorely missed. There are no sufficient words in the dictionary to appease your grief. My heart goes out to all of you.

Michael, Chris and Shawn,
Sandy was a lovely lady willing to share her knowledge with friends and others crossing her path. She was very dedicated to her family and community. As a natural mentor, Sandy was an experienced and trusted advisor and confidante. Her smile and laugh are unforgettable. Peace to all.

Sandy was such a special gal! She was many things to me! After my sister passed away she became, so to speak, “my big sister”. She was always there for me. She was a friend, mentor & colleague. I as all of you will miss her terribly, however we certainly could not wish her to suffer any longer. Thinking of all of you. 😘. Harriet Davenport
