Sandy was not only my bestie's aunt. She felt like she was my aunt too. Such a smart lady, full of helpful advice on growing up and growing older. I can talk to her about anything.

I remember one night she drove me to Chris's house after a night of watching Ian and Elizabeth. During that ride, she was talking to me about my situation at the time, being in an inter-racial relationship, having no family support in my own happiness and striving to do better for myself. She knew how my family will never get that I am a little different than the rest of them, she embraced that about me and always had an ear for me to talk to. She liked having long intense adult conversations with us because I think she knew we were all good smart "kids" and treated us (Chris and I) like an extension of her family. I am glad to have known her, I will miss our long conversations about life, the crazy education system and our travels, she will definitely be missed.

I remember us all going into the city in one car, two families, to eat amazing meals at Todai and then Ichi Umi. Sandy introduced me to Whole Foods and I still shop there. Schoolyard after school to pick up kids at PS29. Pool parties. Such fun times when our kids were small, what a super Mom, love you Sandy.
