Heartfelt condolences at this time of loss. I hope sweetness is coming from this in some form. Sandy is free of any misery now. My love to you, Bruce Howe.
I was fortunate to become part of Sandy’s family when I married her nephew Philip. She was both my aunt and a very special friend. Kind, positive, thoughtful, and pragmatic, Sandy was always a tremendous support to me and Philip and most especially to her sister, Cynthia. She had a wonderful smile, a great sense of humor and was always up for an outing or shopping trip. I will miss our frequent phone calls and less frequent but always delightful visits. Her memory will live on in the lives she touched. I “hope the sun shining” where she has gone. With great sympathy, Lisa
Renee,I know what you are going through right now is very difficult. We are praying that you are comforted by memories and held close in God’s love as you grieve. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
