  1. Sandy,

    We will miss your smile, kindness and friendship. You were the best neighbor always there when we wanted to chat, or when my twin girls wanted to come over to say hi. We will also miss your cooking 🙂

  2. I just learned today of Sandy’s death. There are no words to describe my shock and sadness!
    Michael, Kristen and Ray I am so very, very sorry for your loss! I know how much she loved you all! She loved family above ALL else. She just recently shared beautiful pictures with me of you Kristen and Michael along with your spouses, whom she adored as well. And of course she shared a picture of the two of you Ray, in which you both look so happy. We had lost touch over the years and just reconnected again not long ago. And I’m so glad we did! She was one of the sweetest people I will have ever known! Love you Sandy! Heaven is very lucky to have you!

  3. Sandy,
    You were the Glue that had everyone in your path bond with you and love you. We miss you and will love you forever!

    Always your loving husband….Ray xoxoxo
