I am so sorry to hear of the passing of cousin Kutch (Shandra’s family nickname).
Kutch was so kind and vibrant and I loved her contagious laugh that made my heart smile. My heart goes out to all of your family and to all those her life touched. May Kutch Rest In Peace with her loved ones that have passed before her. ❤️🙏❤️

I was a colleague of Shandra’s during the 80’s and 90’s at Goodwin Tech, and will not forget her energy and enthusiasm, especially as a longtime class and yearbook advisor. My condolences to her family. May she truly Rest In Peace.

We both knew Shandra as a classmate at SHS and as a committee member for our reunions. She was always so pleasant and caring and she is and will continued to be fondly remembered. You have our deepest sympathy. May happy memories bring you comfort and ease your sorrow in the days ahead and may thoughts of her bring smiles to your hearts.

To Shandra’s family,
Please accept my sincerest condolences at this time. Shandra was a SHS classmate of mine. I recently saw her at our Class Picnic in August. I know how much she loved her family as she would frequently speak of you all at our committee meetings.
