Bill, you and Jewels and William already know all the beauty, wisdom, grace, honor, and sweetness that was Sandy.
When Trudie and I first met her it was if she had known us all of her life. She made everyone she met feel that way! We will both miss the gregarious, beautiful person that she was!
Our prayers are with you everyday.

Remembering Sandy, working with her on the first Senior expo and the organization of the Memphis Dance Community Dance Marathon, it was toatally easy to become friends with her, she and I were both "doers" ...she never let the grass grow under her feet and was always thinking of others. I will miss her...Prayers to her family. Sylvia Rose

Bill, she's left a hole in our hearts, hasn't she? For 17 years she was my assistant, friend, confidant, prayer partner, and encourager. You and she even got me hooked on dance! I miss her so - and that's only a fragment of how much I know you miss her. Prayers to you and family. Love, Jane

I know you and your children are broken hearted by Sandy's death. You are in my prayers. Sandy was such a special lady, I still remember her enthusiasm for dancing. She had a smile that was infectious and her zest for life brought energy to any event she attended. She will be missed by her Memphis friends.
With love and sympathy,
