Sandra was a good friend to everybody through our school years. She always had a smile and friendly greeting. We were all richer for her friendship. It's hard to realize so many of our classmates are gone.

My name is Sharon and I met Sandy through Jim when he coached my softball team. I have very fond memories of spending time at their house. Sandra was one of the most gracious and humble person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. No matter what she was involved in, you knew you had 100% of her support and commitment. She will be remembered for her love of her husband and family.
