In loving memory of a wonderful person. I knew sandy for 45 or 47 years. I find it so difficult to admit that she is no longer with us. She was my friend and confidant and saw me through losses and triumphs. Her ability to listen and not judge was unequaled. God has taken His best angel and I'll miss her so terribly . Love to Maxine and her brothers. Renea

I am saddened to hear about the passing of Sandra. Her and Maxine became one of my regulars at Charley´s Restaurant over the last few years. Sandra would always come find me and ask if I had a booth available in my section. They were always a pleasure to wait on and sit down and talk with. Sandra loved her bowl of chili with a sugar packet and her salad with Thousand Island. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Please email me at [email protected] I would like to provide Maxine with her favorite Charley´s meal during this difficult time.
