    Older sister-we had many good years together from kids til now. We enjoyed watching the dolphins jumping and the beaches. Where you mostly sat in the shade-garage sale-casino-eating out and the 3 of us going bargain shopping! You will be greatly missed and always in my heart-love you forever. Who am I suppose to hollar at now?

    I will never forget Sandy and Mema wrapped up in blankets in the middle of July at the Family Reunion! Sandy was such a sweet lady. I am glad I had the opportunity to get to know her and have her around during our big events. Many thoughts and prayers for healing to her children, nieces & nephews, grandchildren, and friends.

    Love to you Sandy. We had wonderful times together shopping, going for rides to get ice cream, scribs pizza . Sitting on the back porch talking about your kids and husband. I was so pleased that she shared her Vanas cookbook with me and taught me to make dumplings. It was joy to know you, you treated kind and I will never forget you. Love you honey.
