My prayers are with you. Please know how dear Sandra was to me and all members of our Alabama Army National Guard unit. She was central to our unit Family Support Program. Sandra was selfless in her dedication to provide fund-raising events or whatever was needed during unit family activities and deployment. I always enjoyed seeing her at the Annual Veterans Day Parade activities and listening to her stories about her support to the mobile Viet Nam Memorial. Sandra loved her family, extended family, church and friends. Her beautiful smile and zest for life will be truly missed. Thank you for sharing her with us.

John and Shannon, we have so many shared memories, laughter and good times together. Growing up in the same neighborhood, going to the same school, our boys in Scouts and even our children going to school together.
We have a friendship that is so special that not even time or distance will ever deminish. Sandra was a special person and she will be missed. (our boys will have to be on their toes now that Sandra has joined them in Heaven)
Love ya, Becky & Larry Hamilton, 'The Plaza'.

Shannon, I didn't know your mom very long but I always enjoyed talking and worshipping with her at church. I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray God will comfort and sustain you with His love.

Dear John and Shannon,
Ann and I are so very sorry to hear about Sandra. It's just hard to believe, having talked to her just two days ago. You and Shannon are in our prayers. The Bible talks about life after this earthly life, and I believe that Sandra is in heaven even as I write this to you., Love, RL and Ann
