I was also a student of Mr Vande Sandes'/Neenah HS, class of 1974. I will always remember his wit, and sincere interest in his students. My sympathies are extended to the entire family.
Mr. Vande Sande was my Biology teacher at Neenah High School, and because he was such a great teacher who made biology interesting and relevant, I went on to take his Advanced Biology class the following year. No doubt he influenced my love of and interest in nature and plants, and I still remember many of the things he taught me all those years ago.
Sue, Scot and family, my deepest sympathies go out to you. His legacy of his gentle love, his orchard, and the Aby cats will live on.
I was one of Mr. Vande Sande's students in his biology class at Neenah High in 1992-93. I took his class for both high school and college credit, for which I am so thankful for. I remember, Susan, when you brought your beautiful cats in to our class- I could easily see how proud Mr. Vande Sande was of them. Rest in peace, Mr. Vande Sande, please know you left a mark on so many students' lives. Susan, you and the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I was just looking at a picture of Scot in our living room on Cedar St. I think it was Prom night.
I am related to the VandeSande family and although I have never met most of the family, I am very sad for your loss. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all!
We are so sorry for your loss. We will pray for you & your family.

We are truly sorry for the loss of your Father. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
Jim and Mary De France were neighbors on Quincy Street in Sturgeon Bay in the ealy 60s. I,Jim,also taught at Sevastapol High School. We rode together to school some days. We remember the cats,already,in Sturgeon Bay. We are proud to have known the family and we sympathize with the loss of a good person.
I was one of his students when he taught at Sevastopol High School so many years ago-Janice Suppanz. He had a way of reaching his students and making them feel special. He touched the lives of many students over the years as he did mine. My condolences to you all.
I was sorry to hear about Jim's illness and passing. We had many good years as coworkers at Neenah H.S. in the science department and also at our moonlighting jobs of working the ice rink at Washington Park.
I will always remember Jim with fondness for his dependability and fairness with students and staff.
You and the rest of Jim's family are in my thoughts and prayers that you will find a new normal and continue on with the wonderful retirement that you have enjoyed these past few years.
Its with sadness but great admiration that I sign this book. You and Jim had such an amazing life and cared so much for each other.
Your joint love of the Abyssinian was infectious the first time we met and certainly helped cement my decision that the Aby was for me.
While nothing can remove the sorrow you feel, over time the joy you had together will overcome the sadness you feel now.
You and your family are in my prayers...

Dear Susan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.
Dear Susan, it is with great sympathy we have heard of Jim's illness and passing. Know that you are in our prayers. Jim was an excellent teacher and friend. Bob remembers with much gratitude your kindness to him during the difficult year in 1987. May you now peace. Sincerely, Bob and Jo Lomprey
