My Great Aunt Sandy was an amzing person inside and out. She never put anyone down and she always had a smile on her face. She could laugh and cut up and bring anyone up if they were down. She was a very strong person and she always faught for what she beleived in, and I look up to her for that. I will always love and miss her and never forget her! I love you so very much Aunt Sandy. Hugs and kisses!

I had the pleasure of knowing Sandy for several years, through her brother, my brother-in-law, Larry. Sandy was a very dear person and was always so friendly. When I think of Sandy I think of her smiling face. My prayers and deepest sympathy go out to her entire family, I know you will all miss her terribly, but there is a promise from our Lord and Saviour that we can see her again one day. May God Bless and strengthen you all in the days ahead.

My very deepest sympathies to Sandy's family. I never had the opportunity to meet her personally, but I have met Peggy. And as it has been mentioned, they were like 'two peas in a pod', I KNOW I would have loved her as much as I love Peggy. I know she will be sorely missed. We will thank GOD that she is now pain free and at peace. May God hold her in His loving arms, and grant peace to her family who remain here to grieve her loss. God bless you all.

The mist has closed its curtain
On our flower in the meadow-
Now the dew is holding
As the sky is folding...

(paraphrased from Ariane Lydon)

As surely as it feels the sky has folded
with the loss of your dear one,
you will find your path, you will go on..
because she would want you to do this-

to discover the secrets that summer has wrapped
to present to autumn, and to know all the
glories of all the coming seasons.

She is there, in every moment, with you.
