I was so saddened to hear this about Sandra. I knew her when we were kids but did not see her for many years. I was very happy that I was able to talk to her again at WalMart, she was of course just as nice as I remembered her. My heart is heavy today for you her family and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have no doubt that her spirit lives on and she is watching over you now.
