    Love lost is still love. It takes a different form, thats all. You cant see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it. Life has to end. Love doesnt. —Mitch Albom We are so sorry for loss. Sandy’s warmth, kind spirit and generous heart will missed by so many! How blessed we’ve all been to call him our friend!

    I am stunned and so saddened to have learned of Sandy’s passing. He did a precious portrait of my Coton de Tulear a few years ago. He was hesitant at first, having never painted an all white dog.......but, it turned out magnificent!!! Our community has lost a treasure and Ken has lost his dear one. My sincere sympathy to all Sandy’s family and friends.
