    I am deeply saddened to known that such a loving, cheerful and caring person such as Sandra has been called home way too soon. I worked with Sandra at BCC. She cared so much for others and I feel I have lost someone very special to me. She was one of my mentors and I feel very priviledged to have known her. My deepest sympathis to her family.

    There are so many great things I could say about Sandra. She was a great co-worker, wonderful nurse and just such a joy to be around. I will always have good memories of her. She had the best attitude and could always keep things in perspective. She really loved her daughters and talked about them all the time. I hope they can find peace in knowing how much joy they brought her. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.

    Jennifer and Liz, So sorry to hear about your loss. Your mother was always so loving and kind to everyone. It is hard to believe she has died. Since you girls have grown and gone your separate ways we have lost touch. Justknow that our thoughts and prayers are with you. I still can't believe she is gone, she was always so vibrant and full of life. Love, Beverly and Tim Anderson
