So sorry to hear of Sandy's passing. I remember her as a sweet little girl playing out in the yard at Orv and Betty's. She was a lovely person. My sympathy to the family.

Brad, Tonya, Laura and Wes. I am so sorry for your loss.... I haven't talked with Sandy for so long and had no idea this was happening. We had so much fun working together in Lancaster, then going to nursing school together. She was a wonderful friend!! My kids will always remember her as Aunt Sandy...
