    Dear Gary and family,

    I am so sad over the passing of Sandy. There is an ache and a void in my heart and in my life. We were together for many years at work with the Learning Center students and with the CHAT group (the adults with developmental disabilities.) My last talk with Sandy was about our February 10th Valentine social which she prepared for us. What a great lady. We will miss her. Lowell and I send our prayers,love and condolences.

    The CHAT members are calling and want you to know that they also loved Sandy and will miss her. We are grateful for all that she did for CHAT. She was so happy and cheerful when we were together. We will miss her. Love and prayers from the CHAT members.

    I went to grade school with Sandy and have not seen her since. I remember her as being a very kind person. But we did argue a bit. I hope to see her in eternity.
