  1. Sandi, every time I think of you, I remember all of the good times laughing and just enjoying life. I also remember the difficult times as we confided in each other and worked through the sad times. Time and distance made it harder to visit but you were always in my heart and a true life-long friend that I will cherish always! I remember our conversation once about faith and Heaven, and now our Savior has called you home to be with Pat again. Please give him a big hug from me! I will always love y’all and I will smile when I think of your friendship and how much y’all mean to me and especially your family. Heaven has gained another angel. You will be missed! But I will not say goodbye, I will say, see you in Heaven. May the harmony of the angels bring you peace as you watch over your family. 🙏💙🙏


  2. I love you Sandi, such a beautiful soul. So many good times with Pat Sr, Pat Jr, Danny, and Cathy in Colorado as well as Georgia. God speed
