Dear Danny and family. Just wanted to say I was always impressed by Sandy's kind and gentle nature her genuine smile and caring ways. Also a great sense of humor. Although I didn't see her often when I did it seemed like we were old friends and I felt very comfortable around her. I'm so sorry for the loss of this lovely woman wife mother and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
