Sandy, Looked you up on Facebook and noticed you had not posted recently. Was saddened to find of your recent passing and also just learning of Claire's passing too. We lived across the street from each other mid '65 & 70's on Maryland Dr. in Vista. Spent a lot of fun times at your house. Remember the ducks you guys had in the lower back yard. And riding Mickey's horse and donkey. And all the treks up to Jackie's house on Highland. Never forget the time that Jackie's Dad drove us to school at VHS in his squad car, lol, we insisted he let us off on the back side of the football field so no one would see us. We shared a lot of laughs. Those were the good old days. Rest in peace my friend.

I first met Sandy on an app called Marco Polo when she and her neice Andrea would send video messages back and forth while Andrea was living in Texas. Whenever I was with Andrea, we'd talk about Sandy, send her a video or send chats to her. She was always so fun, and upbeat in response. She was caring and sweet, always asking about how things were going with me. I had the opportunity to meet Sandy in 2017. I instantaneously thought more of her than I already did. What a beautiful Soul. She had a unique shine in her eyes that was unforgettable. When we met, it was like we always knew each other. A familiarity. She just had that way about her. She was gift of kindness and love to all who loved her, and she was such a bright light to all who knew her. Sandy, you were a lovely woman. I'm so glad to have known you. Please rest easy.

From September 1967 to October 1968, I lived on Highland Drive in Vista, California. I was 14. Sandee lived below us in the neighborhood, but she had a friend on Highland Drive. They used to walk to each other's houses regularly. The yards were way more open then. Far less fences. The shortcut to each other's house was past my bedroom window. I usually kept my drapes and windows open as well. Regularly, movement would catch my eyes. For the 13 months we lived there, I frequently saw her head and shoulders bobbing along as she quickly tried to traverse that shortcut. Sometimes our eyes briefly met. I didn't mind. We were both 14. Saw her in High School after we moved to a different neighborhood. She was always so sweet and quiet. Knew her brother Alan in school. Had a class with him. Wish I had the chance to know her better. We sure would have had music in common. Rest in peace sweet lady.

Aunt Sandy’s smile was always so welcoming. I loved visiting her with Andrea and eating lunch with her. Always filled with honesty and kindness. With love, Lauren.

I met Sandy sometime before I was 13. She actually watched Chip and I when our parents went to Europe. As the years went on, she was a friend, a co-worker (so smart) and part of the Allied Swiss family. She and I have kept in contact all these years and she had a huge heart. I know she missed Claire so much and I can’t help but picturing them dancing around I heaven together!
