Sandra was one of my best friends for many years. She moved next door to us before Julie was born. We lived many miles from each other for a long time, but always stayed in touch. We lived nearer each other for the last few years. We had lunch occasionally, but mostly we talked on the phone to "catch up" on what was going on in our families. She was so dear to me, and I miss her so much. Her girls are so special to me. My heart aches for all of her family. May God be with all of us who loved her so much.

I met Sandra at Kaufman Quilt Guild. She was always so sweet and kind! Sandra was a wonderful mother, sister, grandmother and friend to all. She was mother two two wonderful daughters who loved their parents dearly. I felt privileged to be included in fun times with her beautiful family. Heaven is a little sweeter.

I also enjoyed visiting with Sandra when I would be at the CISD Central Office. She always had a smile and a funny story. Her legacy is her wonderful family. Peace and prayers to you all.

Remembering the friendship our two families shared when we attended church at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Waco. Many decades have passed but we continued to stay in touch. I always enjoyed talking to Sandra on the telephone and will miss her sweet voice. I treasure a cross stitch piece she presented to Earl and me featuring a lovely heart with our wedding date for our 25th anniversary. She was a lady of many talents.
My love, thoughts and prayers are with this sweet family in your time of sorrow. May it comfort you to remember: “God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to make a mistake”.

Being her cousin, growing up in a large extended family, I have so many fun memories of the cousins at special times of the year such as Christmas and family reunions. Sandra has always been a positive, fun-loving, caring, person. She has left a legacy of a beautiful, caring family in her children and grandchildren. She was proud of you all, and I know I know you will miss her tremendously. We loved Sandra so much.
