To Sandy's family, we were so sorry to hear of her passing. We used to have so much fun when we lived in the mobile home park walking and going places together. Shed always call on Halloween night to see if we or her had more trick or treaters. All of our neighborhood picnics and get to gethers she was always there to help out. Also when someone passed away she and I always went to our friends out there and took up a collection either for flowers or food. That is just the kind of GOOD PERSON Sandy was. She will be sadly missed. Sincerely Jeff Moran and John King,

Sandy was one of our dearest friends ever since we first met her when she began attending Grandview Church. She became "family" to my mother Becky Bangert, as well as to us. She called my mother " Mother Hen", and us "Sister Suzie" and "Brother Butch". We have stayed in phone contact with her ever since she first became a resident at Good Sam. We talked at least twice a week for months; maybe only once every other week the past 2 or 3 months. Sandy was a great person, a great believer in the Lord, and she had a very kind and generous spirit. I believe my Mother was one of many who gave her a big hug soon after Sandy entered heaven. We shall miss her but shall remember great memories of her and with her. We loved her very much, and though we shall miss her, we know where she is and that her pain and bad health are over. She is free of it all and happy!
