We loved Sandy dearly! Remember so well our days at Bethel Baptist Church and days following. So good to know that she has joined Dale in heaven. She was a faithful friend to us--we have mememtoes of our grandchildren who passed away which she gave to us years ago. Would love to be present at her memorial service if you let us know when it happens!
Love in Christ,
Pastor Stan & Yvonne Veldt

What can you say about a woman that was a second Mother to you.
She was wonderful. I remember well all those nights playing cards. Dale would get upset about having to draw over & over to play. Dale &Sandy are together again.
