Not sure what to say?

To Sarah and family, I was very saddened to here about your mother's passing. Sandy was a uniquely kind woman, who I had the pleasure and honor of getting to know. She was a gift to the world and to those in recovery. I will always think of her when I hear the words "sunlight of the spirit". Love, Heidi

What a great eulogy for a wonderful woman. It describes the Sandy I knew to a T. She always had a big smile and kind words, and was a great listener. She helped me tremendously in these ways during those periods when I was struggling in my sobriety. She will be missed. My sincerest condolences to family and friends.

A kind and good soul.

Whenever and wherever I saw Sandy, she would would greet me with a huge enthusiastic smile, and we would exchange updates on our sons, Danny and Andrew who were childhood friends. We met during out sons' Belle Sherman days, when our sons seemed to be the only children wearing "husky" sized clothes. Those were the days before internet shopping of course. Sandy was a wonderful person, and a wonderful mom. Such a loss for our community and her family.

So sad to hear about Sandy's death. She was one of the most compassionate people I've known. We met through the Big brother/Big sister program at the Youth Bureau. Her mentorship and positive outlook made a huge difference for me and my little brother's lives.
My deepest condolences to her family.

Ithaca has lost a wonderful person. She may not have been native to Ithaca, But Sandy embraced it as her own. We were lucky to have such a lovely spirit amidst us.

Sandy was the sweetest person.
Our history as friends goes back to the 1970s when she volunteered at Loaves & Fishes along with my father, Melvin Bensa.
We loved to share stories of NYC, where she lived before moving to Ithaca.
She was a free spirit who will be greatly missed.

In loving memory of a wonderful person.I waited on Sandy many years in Ithaca she was a pleasure to talk to and glad I got to meet here .R.P.I.SANDY.

I loved seeing Sandy around town, and I always knew she would have something kind to say. We shared many conversations at Wegmans, and I will never forget her sincerity and her ever-present kindness. I will miss her.
