It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to my dear Uncle Sandy. He has been a rock for me this past year, and I only wish I had him in my life as I grew up. I found him to be incredibly interesting, witty, kind and wickedly smart. He was easy to love, and I will miss him.

My sincere condolences go out to his children his granddaughter, Norma, his wife Linda and his buddy Luke. It was clear that he loved all of you very much, and I enjoyed hearing about you all. If there is anything you need, I am here to help in any way.

His memory lives on in the beautiful redwoods that he loved so much, and it will always live on with me.
