My heart breaks for all of us. There are no words to ease the pain, but know we all loved Sandi. Sandi and I met 12 years ago when we both started working on the KLXS-I contract at KSC. In a very short time we progressed from being co-workers to good friends. Sandi's beautiful smile and warm, caring, kind personality were gifts to everyone that was blessed to meet her. In time, the good memories of time spent together will bring a smile to our faces despite the tears and broken hearts. We will keep Sandi safely tucked in our hearts and will keep her memory alive by speaking of her and sharing "Sandi Stories". Please know that y'all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sandi and I worked together at KSC she sat in the cube next to me. We had so many good times at work-decorating co-workers cubicles for their birthdays. We would take a daily noon time walk so Sandi could get her Sonny’s sweet tea! After work about once a month we would have fun times at our Girl’s night out! She will forever be in our 💕 hearts!

My favorite memory of Sandy was when all us neighborhood kids played all kinds of fun stuff on the corner of Albatross & SE 1st. Sandy always smiling and the most polite of all of us kids. I remember the joy in the entire neighborhood when she was born and brought home. The Bonney family’s grieve with your families in this time of sorrow. Our Prayers are with all you all.

I remember the Hutmacher family from church in Satellite Beach. My mother, Pat, was the church organist. I am a little older than Sandi but I remember she and Donna were pretty and always nice. I did not know she was sick, so sorry to hear the news.
