To the entire Shier family I am so sorry to hear of Sandy's passing.

She was such a nice lady and we had lots of visits with her and her sister Vickie. I met them both years ago when Bruce died and I helped Vickie with her monument purchase here at Mt. Hope Monument in Lansing. Sandy was a huge support to her sister Vickie.

Occasionally when in the area she would just stop to stay hello.

My thoughts and prayers are with Sandy's family. God Bless this special Lady.
