Jerry, Leslie, Sharla & John, I just heard about Sandy and I am so sorry for your loss. I am so upset and wish I was there for you all during this time. Sandy was like a second mother to me. Your family is part of almost all my childhood memories. I will pray for all of you and I hope you know how much my heart is hurting right now. I love you all.
