    To Sandy’s family I am so sorry for your loss.
    Sandy was a sweet lady. I thought a lot of her.
    My parents and she & John were very good friends for a long time. I still loved to hear her talk & she had a beautiful smile. I know she will be terribly missed and was loved very much.

    Aunt Sandy is an amazing woman. She and my mother Shirley Warner were best friends from their teens up. She had a story of my mother teaching her to drive when she came here with John (whom I’ve always thought of as Uncle) and that story was hilarious. She told it when she and John came to hospice to say their goodbyes to Dad. I pray for her son J.O. RIP sweet lady love you!
