I saw Sandy in Jan 2017 and she was so generous with her crafts that I was able to bring home gifts for everybody she had a great talent I have tears rolling down my face as I write this I know she will be missed and my heart goes out to the family hoping peace and joy during this sorrowful time❤️‼️
