Dear Family,
I want to express my sincere sympathy to all of you during this time of loss of your beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and my friend, Sandy. Sandy was one of my Red Hat sisters. She could always make me laugh with her lively spirit and wit. What a great lady, things will not be the same without her. I will miss her dearly at our Red Hat functions and always. May God grant you peace, and rest her soul.

Sandy was the best pal I have ever had
and it was a true blessing to share many wonderful things in life together.
We certainly shared some wonderful times and supported each other when
those times were needed. God certainly
will bless her now for her unselfish
care of others and her never ending strength. Love you always Sandy.
(You crazy BFL and cheerleader of Lady
Miners!!)

Sandy is my cousin and all my memories are of her contagous laughter and quick wit and that she loved life. I have to think that as she made her arrival at God's throne her praises were and will always be full of joy filled laughter to the Father that gave her a merry heart.
