Our dear friend Sand- always had the prettiest smile on her face & in her heart. I truly enjoyed our visits & conversations we shared when she was shopping at H-E-B Plus, always talking about our sons.
The love in her heart was sooo big, I’ll never forget that we both saw this beautiful framed picture of an angel at the store- but since our son had recently passed, she told me she wanted me to have it.
May God comfort this beautiful family with His perfect peace. You’re in our prayers daily 🙏🏽
Love from Brenda & Eausaw Stephenson

Sandra was an incredible individual. I was so blessed to have Sandra in my life. She began employment with us 30 years ago.
The day I met Sandra...I knew how special she was...
Sandra was a woman that was dedicated, loyal to everyone and a joy to be around. I could of not done 'life' without her. She was so loved by our family and friends. Sandra went straight to heaven and now we are very fortunate to have looking out for us. May she rest in peace.
