You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Sandy was always so kind to me and she loved and treated Nick like he was one of her own. She was like a second mother to him. I will forever be grateful to her for that. She loved all of you with her whole heart, and then some. Have comfort in knowing that she is now safe in the arms of our Heavenly more pain. We love you all. Kevin, Lynn, Kevin (Jr) and Nick Curtis

She fought a long hard battle. She stayed strong and positive for the entire family. She was the best aunt in the world! She will be missed but I know she is in a good place now with mom.
