Sandy was a unique lady. She was fun-loving who loved her family and friends. She had a memory like no other. She never forgot anything. She loved to give and not receive. She was a very organized person who kept up with everything. She was a very hard worker. When she wanted something done she would find a way to get it done. She showed love to all the children in the neighborhood who would come and use her backyard as a ballfield. There were many children that came over to play in her yard in which she never had children but treated them as if they were hers. She was loved and will be missed.
