Sandy was the first person to welcome us into the neighborhood when we moved here in 2014. We visited often and my husband and I have very fond memories of her. One especially amusing one is the day we went over to visit and she told us that a possum had come in her back yard and was hissing etc. at her "girls", (her dogs), so she picked it up by the tail and threw it over the fence. We both laughed tilled we ached. Of course we should not have been surprised because of the numerous snakes she killed with her shovel for fear they would bite her "girls".
She will be missed!

My deepest condolences to Mrs. Hamil’s family, friends, and all those lucky to have encountered the great light she was.

Until we meet again, I’ll hold close to my heart Ms. Sandy’s waves with Dudley from the sidewalk while I was aboard the school bus, our happy hours on the back porch, and the occasional honks from her and Mr. Hamil in their Volkswagen bug.

To those grieving, please find comfort in Proverbs 3:5-6.

May Ms. Sandy rest in paradise!

With love,

Danielle Uy

I am so sad that Sandy and Hamil are gone. I was always so impressed with how happy and outgoing they both were.
They were so bright and full of life. They treated me like family from the first time we met. Sandy and Hamil were a shinning light to me.
Some people you meet, just feel like family and they did to me.
I was blessed to have known Sandy. May God bless Sandy and her family that she loved so much.
