Sandy & I met when we were teenagers at Redemption Lutheran church...We were very close and did just about everything together...She stood up for my wedding, and when my first child was born(Susan) I asked Sandy to be her Godmother. I was also Pam's Godmother. but somehow life has a way of changing things sometime, and we drifted apart...for no reason....we just drifted apart.Please stay close to those friends that mean so much....It is so hard for me now to think of all that time we lost. She was always in my heart.
Forever Sandy....Till we meet again !!!!!.....Barb

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Sandra. I'm a Facebook friend of Jael's (friend of Jael's mother-in-law, Becky). But I do know that she must have been one awesome woman. It is clear from posts on Jael's wall that they had a very special bond. I'm very moved by that, having two grandaughters of my own. The photo of Jael and her grandma sitting on a bench speaks volumes of the love that they had for one another.

I don't have a lot of Grandma Sandy memories, since I've only been in the family officially for a little over 4 years, but I loved every second we spent with her. She had the ability to make people feel so very special. When we all went to visit her this past summer, Jacqueline, George and I arrived at her house very late and she was already sleeping so we didn't get to say hi to her that night. The

To all of the loved ones of Sandra, I am sending my heartfelt sympathy and hoping that you may all find comfort in each other’s love throughout this very difficult time.

I've grown to know more about Sandra "Gram" through many many wonderful stories shared by Jael (my Daughter-in-Law). You couldn't help but smile when Jael spoke of Gram, the memories she shared with me were always so warm and touching. I will continue to help Jael keep her memories

Sandy was a bright, loving light wherever she went. She's the kind of person you aspire to be. Her beauty was inside and out. She loved fiercely with her whole heart and those of us lucky enough to be loved by her never questioned it. I can still picture myself, Sandy and Jerry sitting by her computer so she could re-introduce me to cousins I haven't seen in years and her grands and great grands. I got to meet each

I worked with Sandy for many years. She was a great friend and an excellent mentor. She always had such positive advice and faced life with a bright smile every single day. Heaven sure has gained a special angel and she will surely be missed. My thoughts, prayers and condolences go to her family, grandchildren and great grandchildren whom she cherished and spoke of often.

Aunt Sandy was awesome. Fun, uplifting, easy to talk to, and so much more... I often think of the times I'd get to visit the farm in the summer and, of course, all the fun times with her great kids- my cousins.
I wish I was with all of you. I love you. We will miss you Aunt Sandy.
Love,
Randy, Steph, Sierra, and David.
