I am sadden to hear of Sandra's passing. She was a dear friend to me for many years. She was my trainer when I first began work at DuPont in the Lycra department. She introduced me to her family and we all became friends. Sandra had a way of making everyone feel welcome. She had leadership qualities and we had a group of friends who would get together on special occasions just to enjoy each other's company. My heart goes out to the family for we have lost a jewel. Things won't be the same without her. Please know that prayers are being sent up that God will sustain you in this difficult time and give you the strength that you need to continue on.
