I, along with my mother Stella Alexander would like to express our deepest condolences for the last of our dear friend.
Sandra took me in after the loss of my husband 20 years ago, and along with Fred gave me a place to come out and stay and enjoy the hospitality and full measures of friendship.
We spent countless hours cooking and enjoying great meals and good wine and conversations.
Sandra involved me in several community projects, we made pans of Baklava and also shared moments with my Mother about our Greek heritage.
We loved our animals and our families.
Heaven has a special place for our Sandra 💞 may her memory be eternal.
Much love,
Becky Holder

I’m aunt Sandra’s great niece and I just wanted to say that Sandra was so welcoming when I went to visit her and Fred back in 2017. She bought me a shirt–which I still wear to this day!– that reads, “Don’t Mess with Texas”. I was looking for this specific shirt for a very long time and she found it and bought it for me! Aunt Sandra had a good sense of humor and above all else, a heart of gold. She will be severely missed but we all know she’s at peace now. ❤️

Aunt Sandra was the quintessential Southern lady, and I admire that. We reconnected a couple of years ago when my husband died and she was incredibly compassionate and supportive. I will carry that memory with me.

Peace, love and prayers to all the family and friends.

My deepest condolences to all of Sandra's family and friends. As one of her many Georgia relatives, I loved and admired her as an amazing woman of intelligence, integrity, humor, fun, and beauty of person and spirit. Her visits to Georgia were always looked forward to with great anticipation, as were those of all you Texas cousins. I will hold in my heart and prayers Sandra's husband Fred, her son Bryan, her brothers, Laney (and wife Melinda) and John, and those of following generations.
Love Y'all,
Saranne Rushin Peacock
