Bob, Stacy and Family,

We will always remember Sandy and your Mom, Grandmother for her quick wit, grace and charm! Coffee on the street with the neighbors will never be the same.

Nina will always remember working together at Richmond American Homes fondly!! She also remembers the first time Sandy came over to say hello. She was so happy to meet Sandy and knew they would be very good friends!

Christina remembers tea with Miss Sandy as well!!

She always spoke of her grandkids with Nina and shared their successes.

Our love and prayers with you all!

We will always remember Sandy as a dear giving friend, who we first met while in the military and continued to know over the years, long after our retirement. We have shared many memories and you will never be forgotten and dearly missed.
