So sorry to hear of Sandy's passing, it won't be the same going into Mace Shoe Repair without seeing Daryl, Sandy and the dogs all there too. I know Sandy will be greatly missed in our neighborhood.

Although I have not seen Sandy for many years, I remember she always had a cheerful smile and a fun personality! I know she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Sandy, Daryl and myself all attended High school together. In fact our knowing each other goes back to grade school probably. We shared many of the same activities, times and adventures growing up in Liberty. Circling the square, the Dog-n-Suds and the Koo-Koo, Friday night football, school assemblies and classes too. Sandy was always fun loving. Her laugh was not only contagious but memorable. She was also quite capable of standing her ground when the need arose. I know that her marriage to Daryl was something he cherished greatly, as did she. They just seemed to fit together. I will always remember our growing up years and the times we shared in our youth. Sandy, you will remain in our hearts and thoughts.....Rest in peace.
