I am sorry about Sandi's death. I have thought of her often, even most recently. I purchased 2 pottery mugs from her in the past that I just looked at yesterday, and had her make a chalice for my nephew's confirmation gift. I also have a blue cross that I hang on my Christmas tree. I will continue to think of her...Patsy Woodside

Paul and family,

Sandi always had a ready smile. She was generous with her time and her art. She was my teacher when I first joined the gallery. I felt totally at ease due to her kind, patient, and sweet nature.
The cross she gave me will always be a treasure.

The Passageway Gallery will lack a bit of luster, intelligence, and sweetness but Sandi’s spirit and memory will ALWAYS live on in our hearts.

Barbara Egr,
President Passageway Gallery

Paul and family.
We were saddened to learn of the passing of Sandy. We had good times together at many buckskinner events. You have our deepest sympathy.

A "long" time ago we were mischief makers in a family of cousins gathered at mamaw and papaw's house every summer when Sandi and her family would travel from Albany for visits. It is such a feeling of loss now that she is in heaven, but when I think of all the aunts, uncles and cousins who were there to welcome her I have a peace beyond that loss. My thoughts and prayers are with Paul, a daughter that looks exactly her, a brother and sister and grandchildren. May you always feel the love she had for you.

We have always had good times with Sandi Nichols. Sandi was a very talented lady. Her artistic abilities were phenomenal. It will be her beautiful smile and outgoing personality that will be missed most of all.
