To Sandy's family my heart goes out to you for your loss. The world got a little colder the other day when my friend passed away. I've known Sandy since we were teenagers. Funny how we hung out together from time to time and then later on in years our paths would cross at Black and Decker and then again at our weekly shopping trips to Walmart. I don't believe I have ever seen here with out that smile of hers in all the years I have known her. If someone asked me what was the one thing I remember the most about her it would have to be her laugh. My heart has a huge hole in it right now because of my friends passing. Excuse me if I don't say good bye Sandy, just I'll see you again someday. Your Friend, Alice

Mommom Sandy was the strongest woman i have ever known. I onky met her 2 years ago, but in those 2 years she has shown me so much love and compassion. She took me in as if I was her own and I don't know how I can repay her for that. I truely wish I could have spent more time with her. I am going yo try my best to make her proud. I love you Mommom Sandy. I will always be Your Girl.

I'm going to miss teasing Sandy about coming through Hardee's drive thru and not getting her cinnamon raisin biscuit and her tea. Rest In Peace
