  1. Jeff, Tasia & family,

    So sorry for your loss! So much more could be said about Sandi. Her loyalty as a friend. Her big heart to help others. The way her whole body laughed. How she managed to get through adversity to find the end of the tunnel. Wearing her heart on her sleeve. Her compassion. All the things that made Sandi Sandi.

    May you find comfort in the love, thoughts & prayers of all your friends. We all loved Sandi & everything about her!

  2. Sandi was one of the kindest, most empathetic & generous friends I have ever had. She loved her family, her pets, crafting & JESUS. Not necessarily in that order. She is now whole, happy & dancing in the streets of heaven. No more pain, no sorrow, or pain. See you at the gate dear friend.

  3. So sorry for your loss. She was one of the greatest neighbors 1 could ever ask for I have known her since March of 2002 when we moved into the house pretty much Right next door. August 7th I wish I could have done more for them. I did get her and Simon out of the house. She helped me out with raising my son Billy. She looked after my house when I was out of town. I loved her like a 2nd mom.

  4. Aunti Sandi was such a character! She loved crafting, she loved family, and she loved to laugh. One of my earliest memories is staying over her house when she lived in Wildwood and making caterpillar magnets. I have many of the jewelry pieces she made and will treasure them forever. She will be missed. Sending love and hugs your way Uncle Jeff.
