I am so sorry to read about Sandi's passing tonight. She was one of my best friends years ago but sadly we lost touch a long time ago. I remember going on many trips to Illinois with Sandi, Cathy & Carol. Mike, Chris, Debbie, Curt & family. You have my deepest sympathy and I am sending strength to help you get thru this difficult time.

To Miss Sandra's family and friends I send my sincerest condolences, may good friends and prayer help you through this difficult time. Knowing that God will give us comfort when we don't know what to do or what to say, makes me feel better and I hope it will for you too. -Philippians 4:6, 7
