I am so sorry for your loss, Lisa, Parker and family. During the past several years, pre-pandemic, we had quite a few chance meetings with your mother at the Trianon Hotel in Bonita Springs, FL. She always shared a recollection of school-age times when my son and yours spent a lot of time together. Our sincere sympathy.

In the few short years that we got to know Sandy ( Red), as she was affectionately known here, we enjoyed her "piss & vinegar" personality as my husband always teased her. She had a vast amount of endless energy. We always appreciated the yummy baked goods that she would often drop off at our door. We'll miss you. Prayers & peace to her family & many friends.
