  1. I am very saddened by the passing of Sandy. She was ‘one of a kind’. I have such sweet memories of our time together. She always brought laughter to our gatherings. God bless you and your family. You will be in our hearts and prayers for years to come.

  2. Ahhhh Ms Sandi, What a life’s journey you have had! Lots of ups and downs….but you kept your laughter and sharp sense of humor!
    You have had much pain to keep you company the past several years. I would ask our Heavenly Father to release you from it. I know how deeply you were missing your dad and you sister, I believe, girl, you are with them now and none of you are in pain! Celebrate your new life. We will laugh together again one day!

  3. I was so sorry to here of Sandi’s passing. I know she was in alot of discomfort and pain. God put her on my heart about 9 month’s ago to be praying for her and making sure she knew how much he loved her. I would wake up almost daily for a week thinking about her. I sent her many cards telling her of Jesue love, and I hope she knew how much he loved her. We had a couple of good talks and we laughed alot on the phone, and I will treasure those moments. She had some tough days here on this earth, and I am hoping she is finding God’s love and joy in heaven now, which he promises us all if we believe. I pray the loving hands of our precious Lord is holding her tight, and she is feeling his unconditional love. My prayers are with all the Woods family during these turbulant times.God promises us he will never give us more then we can bear. I love you all, and I pray for God’s precious peace to enfold you now and always.
    Love and God Bless,
    Marni Reiffenberger
