Sandi,
Not a day goes by when I don’t at some point think of you - and how your presence altered my life. You are truly forever missed. What a great mentor you were. I know in my heart of hearts that your spirit lives on in a beautiful place – how could it not? And this one's for you.

Sandi, your spirit is greatly missed here on earth. But the greater joy is in knowing that you are at peace in the loving arms of God. I am thankful that the Creator allowed our paths to cross.

Things that make us think of Sandi

 

Does the name Pavlov ring a bell?

Reading while sunbathing makes you well read [red]

A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two tired [too tired]

A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion

If you don't pay your exorcist, you get repossessed

When a clock is hungry, it goes back for seconds

The man who falls into an upholsstery machine is fully recovered

A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat
