George, Wendy and Kim. I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed my time spent with Sandy especially a painting trip we took. There are no words that will take away your pain at this time but remember that she was loved by so many and will be missed. Her pain is over and she is in the arms of God which is a comfort but we grieve for our loss.
