Sandy, you knew me ever since my parents adopted me brought me overseas at 13 months old. You were as close to family as anyone could have been. We had our fights and we had our great moments just like families do.
Growing up, you helped teach me things that my parents couldn’t and were always willing to help me learn from my mistakes and have a good laugh at them. I’ll treasure the memories of helping you make your art in your copper shop, weeding your flowerbeds, and re-sealing your deck with you. I will always carry the work ethic that you and my parents helped instill in me, as well as your stubbornness once you set your mind to a goal. You always told me when I was out of line, and weren’t afraid to call me out. You helped smooth things over with me and my parents during my tumultuous teenage years, and played an undeniable part in me becoming who I am today.
It felt so surreal to hear that you were gone. I always thought you were invincible. I believed that your broken and worn out body would keep going forever, as it always had. Sometimes, I find myself wishing I could call your phone, because no matter what you’d always pick up. I’d tell you something stupid that happened, or one of us would tell the other about something goofy boneheaded mistake that we did and laugh about it. I’d give nearly anything to make that call now.
I’ve grown a lot in these couple years since you’ve gone. I’ve got plans for my life, and I’m ready to put in the work to make those plans and dreams a reality. I just wish you could have been there to see me do it. Hope you’re out there somewhere, and I hope you’re proud of me…
Sandy was a good friend and lover of all animals. Loved working with her through PAWS and the state fair livestock committee. She was a special person and will be missed.
Our condolences to Sandy’s family and friends. We have lost a wonderful and caring person. Her involvement with animal care is evidenced by the success of the PAWS shelter. Yes, small in stature but a real dynamo with unbelievable energy. She will be sorely missed by many. Rest in peace, Sandy.
Sandy you were always like a part of our family I have known you since I was 7 years old. You were a great friend and boss to my mother. We will miss you so very much. We love you. My love goes to her family.
My sincere condolences to Sandy’s family and friends. I have known Sandy for many many years, and she will be missed. Kind, giving, funny, and creative. Rest in peace my friend.
