Sandy and I worked in different departments at Inland Steel. He was a compassionate and understanding person who did his best to accommodate the work force to get the job done. We often shared notes on his and my likes of emeralds. My condolences to the family on Sandy’s passing. The world needs more people such as he. May he Rest-In-Peace.
