Sandra I’m going to miss you so much it has been my great pleasure being an aide taking care of you. Walking into your room every night always put a smile on my face, the morning you went home to be with the lord before I left for work you made sure to tell me you loved me we squeezed hands and I gave u a hug just like every morning before I left. When I got the message that you got your angel wings my heart broke but I was crying happy tears as you went home to a far more beautiful place than here! I love you and will miss you dearly always remember our promise “friends till the end” and I’ll see u on the other side! Rest In Peace

Oh Miss Sandra: how I will miss you helping me with our cooking classes, or our “karaoke” days, and our game days...It is my hope and prayer that you no longer have to struggle, and your voice is strong and pure with the Lord. You have fought a good fight, my friend, and now may you rest....♥️
