  2. Sandy was a precious friend to all. I enjoyed working with her, volunteering with her and her bright outlook when life was really not so bright. Her faith in God and her love for people kept Sandy going even past her means. I know Sandy is in heaven and I know there is a loss here on earth. To her family and other friends, I pray for each of you to be comforted. God's got a very bright child and our ray of sunshine on earth. ---Melanie
