God has gained an angel, and we have lost one. I remember how much you loved animals when we were kids. You made the world a much better place for all of them. Gods speed Sandee. Gary & Julie (Jackson) Fought

I was very surprised to see Sandee passed away, but feel proud to have known her. I feel even more pride because on the Friday before she passed I hung a sign high on my business wall she had given me a few years ago she knew I would enjoy. I was looking forward to her stopping in to see it, but I guess instead I will get to remember her kindness every day I see it instead. Coincidentally later Friday night my father passed away, so the earth lost two great people over just a few days. She is in my thoughts. Michael Miller
