Sandy was a wonderful lady who organized the blood drives for Gladwin community for years. From The Saginaw Valley Blood Program, to Michigan Community Blood Centers to Michigan Blood...long before our organization became Versiti, Sandy was the chairperson and leader. She was a great lady and will be sadly missed. I keep a picture of her with our second leaders, Judy Fidh and Patricia Aspin on the back of my clipboard. There’s a special place in heaven for volunteers, and Sandy will be right there at the top! God bless the family of Sandy! She will be sadly missed!
