Sandra and I met at Western Realty West Vancouver in 1984 forming a friendship that lasted after she moved to California and Arizona. I will miss our weekly calls, her keen insights and her sense of humour. She was a true and generous person who brought many people together throughout her life. I could not have asked for a better friend.

Dear Sandra, I want to thank you for your kindness to me when I was going to buy Park Place and then later when I finally purchased The Grande South. You made an impression on my life forever. Mike Ratcliffe
