Ms. Sandra was my client. We did a cut and a color almost every month. She was bubbly and always came in with lots to talk about. When I shared the news with the salon, no one could believe it. She was a treasure and we will miss her very much.

Sandra was not only my cousin ,my running buddy, but mostly my confidant . We shared so many adventures some that will never be duplicated. Once we mastered one adventure it wasn’t long before we started planning the next. Sandra had the sense of adventure and energy of a young soul. No one will ever be able to take her place. With every suggestion I came up with ;there was never hesitation; she just wanted to know when and where. My heart is broken; ;the only thing that gives me peace is that I know that she is with her true love.
My love and respect ....Nancy

One memory stands out from many fond ones. I was probably 12 or 13 when I spent a week during the summer in San Antonio. Sandy took myself and my brother cruising throughout the city . Driving us around showing us a car dealer with new cars and she said whenever she got older that was where she was buying one at. Ride on my dearest Sandy . Missing you, from your cousin Rick Gallardo.(Ricky)
