Words can not describe Sandy. I knew her since I was about 5 years old. There are a lot of memories but one I laugh about. Is when Brooke and I got some wigs that she had and did a old lady dance going down the basement steps. Sandy will be missed she helped me get my first house. This Family means a lot to me. I Love y'all with all my heart.
