So many memories of Sandy and Dave. I thought we would all be living in Florida together after retirement. Sandy was a very generous person and would take care of anyone that had a need. She loved Jesus. We had so many laughs and good times when we worked together. She is doing the same now with her beloved husband. Our prayers of comfort for your loss dear family.

Our family was so privileged to have lived across the street from the Jakeways growing up. She was so kind and loving . She had a great smile and laugh. She always was willing to help or do anything for you. I have many memories of her kindness. She will be missed. Praying for all of you as you enter this new chapter.

I am so sorry for you all for the loss of your mom. We had so much fun working together at MSI for years. We had some great talks and she and Carolyn (Grant) were my “work moms” LOL. Lots of good advice was given to me and I cherish those memories! I know she loved her family so much! And she loved the lord. My sincere sympathy for your whole family! Lenore
