I am forever grateful to Sandi for her friendship and her ability to teach me to quilt. She was a great teacher. Every time I finish a project, I will think of her. I will miss her a great deal.

Sandy will be greatly missed by her friends at Bentsen Grove in Texas. She was a giving spirit in the park, and one of my “pool buddies.”

We enjoyed Sandi so much while learning a lot of quilting skills. She’s hard to replace.
