  9. Greg,
    Lou and I are sad in the passing of Sandy. Although our distance from one another has grown by lifes changes in direction, we have many fond memories that will keep Sandy with us forever! Think of the great time we had at Lake Mead over the 4th of July. The days wondering around Disney Land and soaking up the sun in Ojai or San Diego. Then we both move back to Colorado and Sandy finds her love in horses. Those are the memories we have of you and Sandy and will cheerish them forever! With all are Love!

  11. Greg,
    I know you are going through a terrible time right now and I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Losing your partner in life is huge and no one can make the pain you are feeling now go away. Sandy will never be forgotten and will always be close in your heart! You are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry Greg.

  12. My heart goes out to the family and friends of this beautiful woman. As we transported her from the hospital to her home I told her the road was about to get bumpy. Her eyes lit up with joy as she knew she was almost home. As we pulled into her driveway I couldn’t believe the amazing sight in front of us, God’s country to say the least! The driveway was lined with people waiting to greet her, people who loved her dearly. Although I was only a small part in her and her families life, an hour maybe. I was truely touched and blessed to meet them all. God was there that day and the love shined brightly, her husband looked at her as if he had just fallen in love with her all over again. Thank you for reminding me of how precious life is.

  13. Greg,

    If is wasn’t for all the all the wonderful emails by our classmates sharing memories I would have not known of your loss.

    Please know that you are in my thoughs and prayers and I hope Family, friends and a lot of hand shakes and hugs help better the days ahead.
