Thinking of you,Pat, and lifting you up in prayer. Sandy was on 2walks with me and she was always smiling that beautiful smile and her eyes sparkled. That is the picture I carry in my mind of her
Know that we are thinking of you and your family and lifting you up in prayer as you travel this journey that no one wants but comes to us all one day.
We wish we could be there with you but since we can’t, we send our love this way.

Pat and family,

We are so sorry to hear about Sandy's passing. She was such a sweet person that will truly be missed. When I think of Sandy, I immediately picture her smile. It was contagious. I am sure my dad, Jack Scott, will be giving her a big hug and a hard time when he sees her in heaven. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Love you,

Shelley and family

To Sandy's family So sorry to read about her passing. I considered Sandy as my best friend in high school & neighbor. Remember walking to her grandmothers house for lunch during our break at Feitshans. After graduation we both went on with our separate lives, & regret not keeping in touch. My prayers are with you all
