We are broken hearted to learn of Sandy's passing. A dear friend who was empathetic to all without a voice, both 2 legged and 4 legged. One of the things we admired most about Sandy was her ability to be all-in for anything she believed holding back, as evidenced by her work for the Houston Holocaust Museum.
One of our fondest memories was going with Wray and Sandy to a casino in Lake Charles ---- we all had so much fun and that is how we will choose to remember them. Our sincerest Sympathy to Greg, Rona, Courtney and her extended family. We loved her too...

Some of my fondest memories from childhood are times that we spent with Sandra and her family. Love and laughter abounded and even if time and distance separated us as adults that feeling never diminished. I hope she knew just how much she meant to me.
