Sandra touched so many lives and had the biggest, kindest heart of anyone I have ever known. I will miss her voice, her kindness and true empathy for others and her work ethic. I first met her when Stapley was north of the 60 and "sinking" and learned she also had a love and passion for our furry 4-legged friends same as I do and not just a love for our patients. You can't fake the love and kindness she extended to all including the 4-legged variety. I wish we could bottle her essence, her kindness to others because then the world would be a better place. I will miss our talks, you sticking your tongue out at me in only that way you could do to sass me and make me smile. Most of all I'll miss your hugs. No matter what you were feeling you somehow had a way of making others feel better and you always knew when someone needed a hug. I can only imagine that now you'll have such beautifully strong and massive angel wings that you can hug and protect all those family and friends that you love and still watch over.
I'll miss you mon Amie.

I have been struggling with the words to express how I feel. I never imagined I would have to put my sister to rest just 5 months after losing my mom. Sandra was one of the most loving and giving people I've ever known. Twice in my life she took me in when I needed a place to live. She always put others ahead of herself and was so forgiving. She loved deeply, laughed fully, and gave selflessly. So many people chose to call her a friend and I was blessed to call her my sister. The last time I saw her was when I was home to lay our mom to rest. I have no idea why God decided to call her home after a short 53 years on Earth. I can only imagine that He felt her work here was finished. For those of us left on this side of Heaven, the world has lost one of the most beautiful souls I've ever known. It hurts more than my heart can take.

I met Sandra working at CIGNA. But I got to know her even better after I left CIGNA. She was such a good friend she made an effort to make sure we stayed friends. Keeping in touch with text messages and calling me and I especially cherish all the weekends that she came to my house And usually brought me some kind of small gift just to show that she cares. I loved sitting at my dining room table having coffee with her and just Talking for hours about what’s going on in our lives. I will miss my friend

I worked with Sandra on many saturday mornings at Stapley over the years. Its not easy getting up early on a saturday and driving an hour to get to work, however, knowing I was going to spend the morning with her made it all better. She treated people like priceless paintings by placing them in the best light. It was an absolute blessing to have met her.

Sandra was a spark of energy and joy. She was great at making you smile because she was so lighthearted and her smile was infectious. She was one of the ones that you could always count on in optical. She always made time to help you without hesitation. She was always ready to support a coworker. I remember her and Jeff being at my surprise house warming party a few years ago in Maricopa and it's a memory that means even more today. God please place a fence of comfort around Sandra's family during this difficult time.

I was blessed to come into this world with my twin sister, Sandra, and to have my life intertwined with hers. I look back at the memories that we shared, and we had so many where we were laughing, joking, and just having fun. Sandra and I had several conversations where we wouldn’t complete our sentences because we knew what the other was thinking. We would receive confused or blank stares from friends or family because they had no clue what we were talking about and we would just laugh. We also would finish each other’s sentences or answer someone else’s question in unison and receive chuckles. We loved being twins and we had so many similar hobbies, likes, and dislikes. It is because of Sandy and Jeff that I started to attend Comicon conventions and dressing up in costumes besides Halloween. We both loved Star Trek, Star Wars, and sci-fi shows as well as superheroes. We also loved God, both became Christians, and Sandy would encourage me with scriptures when I was feeling down, discouraged or unworthy. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family who loves and cares for me. Sandy was the embodiment of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Sandra gave unconditional love and she was the most kind, loving, caring, and joyful person I have ever known, and she touched the lives of so many people. I am honored to have had her as one of my sisters and to have had her in my life. I will truly miss my sister and best friend.

What to say about Mom; she was the best mom a girl could ever ask for. She was loving, caring, kind, and there for anyone who needed her. I may have been her only child but she would treat all my friends as if they were her own, too. She helped raise my half brother, Tyler, and treated him as if he was her own as well. She had enough love in her heart for the world. No matter what, my mom was always there for me in every way. All I had to do was ask and she would do anything for me or my daughters. She was by my side even when she wasn’t. My favorite part about growing up was getting to tease you all the time like when I’d tell you the yellow jelly bean was lemon flavored when it was really banana which you couldn’t stand artificial banana. Or the time after one of my choir concerts you ran over the parking block. Jeff, myself, and my friend had to lift up the front end of the car so you could back up off of it. Most of all, I will miss seeing your smiling face with the girls when I tell you the funny things they do each day. I am going to miss calling you or texting you and hearing your voice. You are a beautiful person inside and out. I will always be your Precious. I love you always Mom.
Love your Daughter

I probably spent the most time with you in the last 5 years than even your family as we spent 9 hours together everyday! I am very grateful for all you taught me and a witness to the huge heart you had. Your patience and love towards our patients will live in our office for years to come. You would have given your shirt off your back to anyone in need. I will cherish those moments when we "fought over " helping our next patient making them laugh and feel appreciated and valued. I find peace in knowing you are no longer in pain and know that your loving spirit will be prevalent in all of our hearts.

I,too,was lucky enough meet you thru work. I had just transferred from another center and I was a little scared. But you were so patient and welcoming. You taught me well ! Even tho I was a slow learner you never waivered! You always made me smile and would show me the positive. Heaven gained one heck of an angel. I love you Sandra. You will be missed by so many. Godspeed my friend until we meet again. ♡♡♡

Sandra,

I will always remember our fun times at the old Stapley Cigna building. You were always so kind and willing to help out. I appreciate how you welcomed me with open arms to the team. I will cherish our memories especially all the fun pranks we pulled on each other. I’m so happy we still kept in touch after I left and you were able to meet Alexander! I pray you Rest In Peace! Love always Min ❤️
