  2. Deepest sympathy to the entire family. Sandy and I work together for many years; lots of good memories.

  3. Dear Evelyn, Larry, Ron, Roger, Steph, Pam and Twyla:

    We are profoundly saddened by the loss of your lovely daughter and sister, Sandy. While we understand that her passing was expected, and was indeed peaceful, these are of little consolation at this time; and for this you have our deepest sympathies. We enjoyed getting to know Sandy through the years at your family gatherings. She had a great sense of humor and was always upbeat. She was fun to talk to and be with, and we will always cherish our memories of her.


    Pam and Bob (Helfert)

  4. I was saddened to see the notice about Sandy’s death. As you may recall, Sandy and I were friends and in the same class at Athens High School. I have many warm memories of things Sandy, Marilynn Beccue Ferricks, Linda Bell Pedigo and I did together in high school. One of the most vivid memories was an FHA trip to the Wisconsin Dells; what fun! Sandy was such a sweet person, fun to be around and always so helpful to everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family at this most difficult time. Love, Beverly Brown Warner
