Sandra was a member of my team in the local ladies' bowling league. We were already missing her smile and bubbly personality. The news of her passing has been sad and shocking. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tanya, Todd and all family members.
I have known Sandra since I was 6 and she always had a smile for me and her love for God and her family always showed through. She was a wonderful woman and will be missed. Hugs and kisses to her family with much love.
