Sandy was by far the sweetest, most genuinely honest woman I'd ever met. In the many years of our friendship we never had a cross word, although she had set me strait a few times when I needed it. she always put others before herself without a second thought. I admired and loved her beyond measure and life will surely never be the same without her. as I sit in this empty house day after day, night after night missing her presence and her touch & asking why...

rest in peace sandy girl

Sandy was one of my best friends' mom. Barbara loved and respected her mom so much. Sandy taught Barbara how to be a great mother and a hard worker. Whenever I saw Sandy she always had a smile on her face and was always having a great time, no matter what it was she was doing. She was a great role model and it just breaks my heart that her kids were robbed of her so early in life. They need her so much.
Why her? She didnt do anything wrong. The punk who took her life should be the one who lost his life, not an innocent mother. This kid has nothing to offer. His second DUI? At 19? What an asset to the world @@.
My heart and prayers go out to Barbara, Danielle, Ray, Mylissa, her grandson Trenton, as well as the rest of her family and friends who are left to ask and wonder why. I love you guys and I think about her and you guys everyday. I hope that the pain lessen as each day passes.
Taken way too soon.
