YOU!!!! Man i will never forget the day I met you for the first time. It was the scariest most funny moment of my life. On that day i would have never thought that you would turn out to be my best friend, or even my 2nd mom. On my worst days you still always found a way to make me smile and laugh again. Im so thankful that you was part of my life and I got to be part of yours as well. I love you so much Sandy, i don't think you ever understood how much i actually love and care for you. I know that you're watching over us from heaven and i hope you like the view. Sandy im gonna miss you like crazy. Who's gonna throw all those snowballs at me on facebook now? I love you Sandy.

Oh goodness, Sandy! I dont know where to start or how to even put it in words.... This is so unbelievable, I dont even want to accept it... You were always smiling and laughing, and you treated me like family from day 1 even though it wasnt until later that we actually became family! No matter what was going on, you kept pushing. I remember every time i came to visit, you would be the first one to say hello and give me that sweet, contagious smile. It wasn't just a smile, it was one of those Warm, Comforting, and Genuine smiles. And your personality matched it! Always staying positive, humble and sweet. And oh Lord did you have jokes! You cracked me up a lot, messing with David or cracking on Shawn...I'll miss it. The love you had for Brian was just precious, and the bond you had with Brooke was flawless. Words couldn't describe the amount of love you had for Brooke and your grandbabies. But the look in your eyes said it all...and believe me, they love you the same. But who wouldn't? You were just full of love and those vibes filled the room. It was a short time i had with you, but it was long enough for you to steal a spot in my heart. I'm thankful for the memories we shared and I'll forever hold onto them. I hate that it has to be this way, but I'm also happy. You're home, with no more more stress, and no more darkness... You can now truly live by Christ himself, blessing Heaven even more with that beautiful smile. But the selfishness in me hurts, because we lost some one extremely special. To say you was a good person isnt enough, you was a God given gift to this Earth and everyone who met you. But God needs His best angels right now, so He called you home. I love you, Sandy...Until we meet again. Xoxo

I'm gonna start by saying I hate that we are even having to do this. You were so young still and its breaking my heart into pieces. I'm doing everything I possibly can to be there for Brooke, David, and Brian, and our precious grandbabies that we shared together. These babies love you dearly and are gonna miss you like crazy. This is the one part in life that I absolutely hate! I feel its so unfair but as it says in the Bible, he's coming for all his people and is taking the greatest people on earth. I'm so happy I've got to know you for almost 5 years now. Your daughter has been the BEST thing that has happened in my sons life besides their children. I'm very glad God brought us together. You are gonna be missed dearly Sandy. Until we meet again please know that I Love You So Much Sandy.. R.I.P

Dear Wolfe and Franklin Families,

I met Sandy when Buffy was starting on her Family Tree. We had a blast that day, talking about Sandy's good memories of her People and then driving to the cemetery where many of them had been relocated because of Douglas Dam. I liked you from the first mment and we only ever spent that one day together. I could see kindness, compassion, love of family, and a really good love of life. I'm sorry that she had to leave so soon.

Oh man! Where do I start? I have never had a sister , only brothers. It’s true what they say about not knowing what you have till it’s gone. I realize that in you I had that sister. We fought and got mad at each other but there was a sisterly love there that I did not truly recognize. You were my brothers wife... but in reality you were more than that! I know my brother loves you like crazy! And I know you loved him the same way! You were so giving and tried to please everyone. You worried too much about not being what others wanted or needed you to be. When you were already all that you could be to most anyone who knew you! You were sweet, caring , stubborn, loving, and I will miss all those things and your smile and hugs! For my sister I never knew I had I pray that God has you in your much deserved place at his table! And that you are enjoying the company of those who went before! Tell my momma I love her! I am glad you are now at peace and whole and healthy again! I will miss you! I love you!

I am posting this to you for our Gia.
Mamaw you're always there as I climb the stairs
I won't know what to do that you're no longer there
We played,we laughed,and I drove you wild
As you would expect from your first grandchild
My bestest friend and partners in crime
What we wouldn't give for just a little more time
I'm gonna still laugh and I'm gonna still play just know you'll be with me every step of the way.
I'm gonna miss you so so much, your laugh, smile and especially touch.
Don't worry Mamaw ill be fine because it was you who raised that mommy of mine

My sweet little mommy. This just doesn't seem real. You were my foundation and now I'm just shook. I couldn't have asked for a better mommy. You and I had such a special relationship that not many understand. To say we were codependent on each other is an understatement. There is so so much that I would say to you but bottom line is that you were so, so special to me. You loved us with every fiber of your being and I know that. You were the best Mamaw to Gia and Walker. If im half the mother to my kids that you were to me then they will be loved and cherished forever. I love you my sweet little mommy and I don't know how I'm gonna do this without you. Be with Mamaw and save me a seat up front. When it's my time, be there to hold me on that glorious moment. Be my angel and my voice of reason. I will carry you with me, always.
