    Bill & I are so sorry about your loss. Although I know Sandi is having the time of her life, you are missing having this beautiful woman in your life. She was a genuinely loving human being who reached out to others without judgment. What a blessing she's been to so many lives. I know you must be missing her so much; she was a beautiful soul. Blessings to you.

    Our sympathies go out to you.  It has been years since I have Sandi and Jim.  But I have

    always remembered her smiling face and the love she shared.  She is now being embraced with her loving parents and brother.

    So sorry for your loss. We can find comfort in knowing that one day death will be no more. Rev 21:3,4. What a joy that will be.
