Sandy was my big sister, the keeper of the family’s knowledge. She has left this earth and took that with her. I so wish I could have seen her once more before she passed. Her years of suffering have ended. She held on till it was no longer feasible so, she said, put me on hospice.I am ready. She’s now with our mama and daddy, her son Michael, my husband Bob and all our previously departed loved ones.
Rest in eternal peace my sister. I loved you so much and still do and will miss you with all my heart and soul…losing you has left me broken hearted.
