    I got to be a good friend to Sandy 3 years ago, Sandy was the best friend I could have we laughed, talked and share a lot of thing. I always knew if I told Sandy anything it wouldn’t go any further just she knew of me. I got to know

  7. Nancy Dwire, Activity Director says

    Sandy was at the Clara City Care Center only a short while but while she was waiting for her turn in the beauty shop, we invited her to have break with us, the activity staff. When we brought her a piece of strawberry shortcake her eyes sparkled a bit and she smiled and said, “Yes, I want to try it, I love it”, even as ill as she was at that point. We had a wonderful visit and short as it was, we all knew what a kind and caring person she had been in her lifetime. I would have loved to have known her much earlier. We send our sympathy and pray for comfort for you her family. Remember all the good times – that’s what she would have wanted.

    I got to know Sandy as she shopped at our grocery store. She was such a kind and caring person. I always enjoyed seeing and visiting with her. She was a very private person but such a genuine lady. I will miss her very much.

  9. Joe Gordon says

    I met Sandy about 3 years ago at her job. We became friends and I treasured her friendship. When she told me she was sick, I told her she had to tell her family. I was relieved she finally did. I will miss her dearly. Rest in Peace Sandy knowing you made this world a brighter place for many, many people.

  10. Steve Kossor says

    So sorry to learn of Sandy’s passing. She called me the day her husband, George, died (he and I were the best of friends in Pennsylvania). I visited Sandy and George in Maryland once with my infant son, Nick. I would cherish any pictures of George that might be available. He was afflicted with a respiratory ailment and I sent computer equipment to him so that he could continue his writing and supported his trip to the Mayo Clinic for diagnostic work that wasn’t optimistic. He loved Sandy and did what he could to provide for the family. RIP George and Sandy.
