"Sandra, I miss you so much!  I think of you ALWAYS!  It's not easy trying to deal with you being gone. It's something I will never get used to.  But at least I get to talk to you sometimes in my dreams at night. I only wish they weren't just dreams. You're always with me in my heart. Our wonderful memories together keep me smiling. Sending prayers of comfort and peace to your family. May they stay strong.
Love you!  Sendinig you big hugs. ❤ ⚘"

"You're heavy on my heart (especially) today, Mom. I am always thinking of you, missing you.. loving you. There is so much I wish I could be sharing and experiencing with you. I think we're all doing our best to find our way.. and it isn't easy without you here to keep us all together and to guide us in the right direction but we'll get there. Today, I imagined what it would be like to see you again and I was overwhelmed with emotion as I pictured it. I am not the most religious nor spiritual person but, for a reason I can't explain, I feel a strong faith that that day will come. And for now, I can find comfort in believing we will be together again one day. Between then and now, I'll be doing my best to live a life you would be proud of. I'll tell you all about it one day... I love you so much."

"I met Dr. Wagner when I was about 12 years old and came to her after having a terrible experience with another dentist. I was terrified of Dentist for a while, but once I met her she was so sweet and kind and made me feel like I was safe in her office underground off of Chambers. I found a friend in her like most do and even told her things I couldn't tell my own Mother. She was, is and ALWAYS will be Forever in my Heart! Thank you for EVERYTHING you EVER did for me & my family. Love The Pennebakers' & Pooles'"

"My husband was looking something up just now and asked me how to spell your last name, Dr Wagner.  I told him that I wanted to go back to your clinic cuz you and your staff were always so amazing! My 2 kids and I went to you back in the late 90S for a while.  I shared my homeschooling stories about them to you and you were always so interested! I loved your stories about your family and your positive attitude!  I left years later because when you moved your office to Sothlands, it became far to drive and take off work.  And then I believed you were no longer opened on Saturdays?  I ended up seeking out someone which ended up being a Comfort Dental.  I did not like them.  I missed you and your staff!  So now my husband and I moved further south last year, much closer to you.  I actually wanted to call and see if I can come in next month.  I looked you up and stumbled into this site.  How heartbreaking to read of your passing.....made me cry.... I've always missed you all these years!  ❤"

"Dear Sandra, Today I turn 47....While I am so thankful and grateful to have another birthday, I find myself sad this morning because you didn't get the chance to be 47. I miss your laugh and your love for life and that you always remembered my birthday. You made time for special happy hours, called me or sent flowers. I loved the time we spent together one on one laughing and figuring out life, work life stresses and family dynamics.

I want you to know how proud you would be of Brian and Sarah. They have both stepped up to be incredible strength for Wes as he has worked through the blood clot and loss of his leg. As I sit back and reflect, I am so proud of both of them and know you are watching over us all.

Lastly, I seized the last piece of advice you gave me. You were always the best at calling a spade a spade. You told me you only had a couple of months left but that I had time and you didn't understand why I didn't make changes to positively impact my family and work....I changed my career so that I could be more present for my family and follow what I had wanted to do for years. Starting over at 45 was not easy! It's been a challenging transition but I did it. I know you would be saying "well, it was about damn time". Thank you for giving me that gift and the strength to finally make the changes I knew needed to be made. I miss you."

"Never has a single day passed that I haven't thought about you or wanted you here with me. I love you so incredibly much. My memories with you constantly fill my mind, I still hear your laugh and see your smile in the people that surround me. I miss you more than I ever imagined I could miss one person and I finally understand why. It's because you've always been my role model, you really have. How you lived life always being happy and laughing and smiling, I looked up to you because of that, because I knew that's how I wanted to live my life too. Everyday people comment on how they don't understand how I can always be so happy and positive, and the truth is, I get it from you. I live my life inspired by how you lived yours and that is a legacy I promise to you I will carry on as long as I'm here on earth and I hope to pass it down to anyone I can. You've made an incredible impact on me and you've shown me how to try my best to be happy everyday, and other people have noticed. I can only hope to make that same impact on someone else. I wouldn't be the happy, positive, kind person that I strive to be everyday if it wasn't for you, and that is the greatest gift that anyone has ever blessed me with."

"Wags, Here it is 2016 already. 2015 was a tough year to say the least, but you would be so proud of Brian, Sarah and Wes. I have been trying to help them, but they are doing so well. They miss you very much, as do I. It is still weird not having you here to celebrate our birthday. You are always in our hearts forever. Love you amiga, Cassy"

"Dear Aunt Sandy, Here we are a year later. I do not understand how it could have already been a year since you left us. There is not a single day that goes by that I do not think about you. I can still hear that laugh of yours sometimes, that contagious laugh that brought everyone joy, that wonderful laugh I remember hearing once sitting in the lobby of your dental office even though you were rooms away. I will never forget all the times you called me sunshine and how everytime I hear that word I think of you. I'll never forget that day you took me to Brio for lunch for my birthday, just the two of us. Whenever we drive by I think of you. While you may be looking down on us from paradise, it's as if I still feel your presence everywhere because everywhere I go there is something that reminds me of you. I love and miss you so dearly. Rest in peace aunt Sandy, but don't forget to party a little and have a great time up there, because I know that's what you love to do. :) Love, Ashlyn"

The large horse picture you gave me still adorns our living room wall, making me think of and miss you daily.  These are beautiful tributes that others have written.  You always had a great sense of humor, or at least you laughed at my jokes.  So, the music playing on this website is in Spanish.  Does that mean you're taking time to learn it?  :)"

"Dear Sandra, I was thinking about the event we were at at 10 years ago next week and you came over and said, "Hey Sunshine, we have to dance to this, it's our song". The song was We are Family. We danced and laughed and then drank more wine! I think of you everytime I hear that song and remember your beautiful smile and contagious laugh. Thank you for your wisdom and the gift you gave me and my family during the conversation we had in May 2014...you told me you couldn't change what was happening in the limited time ahead but that I could change my career/stop traveling so much and be more present. You said you couldn't change things but that I could and you just didn't understand why I didn't....I took it to heart Sandra and I changed it. I am forever grateful for your words of wisdom and I miss you."

     I think at this exact moment one year ago I was holding your hand listening to you talk to the ceiling (making plans I'm sure! As you always did) while Grandma kept telling me to go to bed! Little did I know that'd be the last time I'd hear your voice and the last time we would tell each other "I love you". I miss you so incredibly much. Not a single day goes by where I don't think about you. I still feel so lost without you but I'm doing my best and I hope I'm making you proud. I hope you are at peace and happy... And I hope in some realm our souls will be together again. I know you always told me that no one will ever love you like a Mother does and I know that to be more true than ever because it's what I miss most and what I know will never be replaced.     Reminds me of the book you used to read us before bed... "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be." Rest in peace sweet mommy <3"

"I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Sandra's passing.  I had called her office because I wanted to refer someone to her.  It was only then that I learned of what had happened.

She was a client of my husband, an attorney, who thought Sandra may be the first dentist on the planet to whom I could go without therapy or serious medication.  He was so right.  

I'm not sure why she didn't shut me up, but once I was in one dental chair, and overheard her speaking Spanish (sort of) to another patient.  Despite the wall between us, I corrected her Spanish, and she good-naturedly (of course) took it in stride.  Sandra didn't wonder, out loud anyway, who this gringa thought she was!  It became something of a standing joke (although I don't think I heard her speak Spanish again!)

In her old office, she had a HUGE framed picture of a horse.  I had mentioned several times how much I liked it.  I really LOVED that picture.  When I went to an appointment in her new office, she gave it to me, and it currently adorns our living room.  I have a daily reminder of her warmth and generosity, and angelic nature;  she has a smile on her face and a place in her heart for everyone.  She is such a loss to us all."

"Well I got up today and was going to make a dentist appointment and I knew she was sick but I though she would beat it.She was larger than life. I would go in and we talked about kids marriage and she was a hoot. I was a single mother for a long time. I could never afford to go to the dentist and my teeth were in bad shape and she never judged me she said sweetie let's take care of you! The first time we met she walked in the room and started speaking Spanish.I thought Oh shit she only speaks Spanish am screwed. I looked scared and said I don't speak Spanish she laughed and said am sorry sweetie. She said you look Spanish. I said no am Sioux Indian we laugh about that and laughed. We were the same age so when she got the lip injections she pulled her mask down and we laughed and laugh.... She was beautiful in and out. We loved talking about our kids we talked about the dumb things they would do then we would laugh and say...... We probly would have done the same thing. I hope her kids read this and just know she would not want you to be sad and just know she's in a beautiful place. I have cried the whole time writing this and It's going to be sad going to the dentist. Rest in peace beautiful Sandra I sure will miss my talks with you sister......."

"Dr. Wagner,  I went in for a cleaning expecting to see your beautiful face and radiant and contagious laughter, but instead I received word of your passing.  I am shocked and all me and my family have is the great memories of you especially those of you doing so much for us and the amazing role model you served for my siblings and I.  Siempre seras un orgullo Hispano.  I want to let you know that I finally graduated with my B.S and that I will always remember those words of encouragement you gave me when things got tough.  Most importantly I want though thank you very much for the many years of making my day and giving me the strength and love to myself despite my low self esteem.  Your attitude and Amazing personality made me feel good and when I was called names I always had you to undo all the negativity.  I also want to thank you for the beautiful smile that you and Dr. Wiggins gave me with your amazing work.   Lastly thank you for the last gift you gave me the last visit I had with you, you shall remain in my heart, prayers and smile......"

"Today my family just heard the news of our dear dentist and friend, Sandra. My whole family had such a privilege to have her as a dentist and had been seeing her for 20+ years. We felt more like family then patients and that's what we loved about her and her team. As a child and teenager I had a phobia of needles and whenever I had to get some work done I just remember her kind voice telling me it would be okay. She never made me feel silly for crying after getting a shot and she was the only one I trusted to give me a shot. My dad, Ron Lee would always have to go back to hold my hand and she always made me feel comfort. As years passed we found a great Othrodontist, Dr. Wiggins through Dr. Wagner's guidance. I'm so grateful that we had her as a dentist but also gained a friend. Today our family mourns a lost of friend and we'll continue to remember everything about her. We remember her love of horses and her beautiful smile and infectious laugh. She truly was a light of positivity and full of energy. God has gained a beautiful Angel and no one will ever be like her. Rest in Peace dear friend and I know you're watching over all our love ones and friends.

We will forever miss you, Rebecca, Jane and Ron Lee"

"Mis mas sinceras condolencias a toda la familia.  Especialmente a Tia Flor, Tio Arnulfo, Brian, Sarah & Wes.  
Sandra no se fue solo cambio de residencia.  Ahora vive en el corazon y en los sueños de la familia, amigos, conocidos y cada persona que llego a conocerla. La vida es un misterio.  Nunca sabremos porque se fue tan pronto. Lo que si sabemos es que ya no tiene mas dolor.  Su cuerpo no esta mas entre nosotros, pero su espiritu lleno de inspiracion, compasion y alegria seguira siempre entre nosotros al recordarla. Me dio gusto verla en vida por ultima vez en marzo y darle las gracias por toda la ayuda que me brindo tanto a mi como a mi familia.  Gracias Sandra una vez mas.  Bendiciones!!!"

"Aunt Sandy,
You mean the world to me. It broke my heart to see you go but our memories will forever live on. You have been such an incredible aunt and I love you more than words can explain. I really enjoyed the years I went to your office on bring your child to work day to see what it was like to be a dentist. I had so much fun being your little assistant. I loved the way you called me sunshine. That word always makes me think of you. I remember when I would spend the night at your house and sleep in Sarah's bed and try on all her clothes. You would also take me shopping and out to lunch. We went to Brio for my 13th birthday and then you bought me an outfit from Abercrombie and Fitch. That was one of my favorite memories with you. I also love the white dress you got me. I will never forget your contagious laugh or stunning smile. Thank you for bringing so much joy into this world. You could make more people smile in one day than most people could in lifetime. I love you so very much Aunt Sandy and I always will."

"This is my Eulogy of Sandra Bujanda-Wagner:

Even though my heart is broken, and the grief I feel is unbearable, it is an honor to stand before you today to celebrate the life of my beautiful friend, Sandra Bujanda-Wagner.  She was more than just my best friend; I consider her more like a twin sister.   We even share the same birthday, November 30th.   She seemed to know and understand me more than my family members, even though we didn’t grow up together.  

I first met Sandra in 1997, when we were just getting our dental practices going. I took her out for lunch, and after spending only a brief time with her, I felt that I had known her my whole life.  She was just one of those people that you connect with right away and know that you’re onto something special.  

We have been the best of friends ever since that day, the Wigs and Wags duo.  Even our patients would get us confused. They would say “Dr. Wiggins, you sounds just like Dr. Wagner”, or “you and Dr. Wagner have the same crazy laugh”.  In fact, she and I have even been asked politely to leave a restaurant, due to our crazy laughs. But this is only one of her many endearing qualities.   Sandra had the most positive, vibrant and warm personality that you will ever find.  She is truly the best person I have ever met in my life.  

We have shared so many experiences and memories throughout the years with our careers, running our own businesses, the ups and downs of life, the joys and the sorrows.   I have never met a more kind, compassionate, spiritual, generous and joyful soul that loved life and lived it to its fullest. It showed in all aspects of her life – as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, and a dentist. I can tell you firsthand as not only her friend, but also as her dental colleague, that her patients not only viewed her as more than a dentist, but also as a dear friend, because that is how she treated everyone.  People just absolutely loved her. She lived her life to give to others. She has never met a person in need that she didn’t find some way of helping. I saw this in her actions in both her personal and professional lives.  

It only takes spending a few moments on her tribute website to understand the number of lives that she has touched.  Her family, friends, and patients have all

posted messages that express the amazing ways that she loved, helped, cared for and changed their lives.  

After reading those tributes, it is why it’s so hard to believe that she is no longer with us. It is difficult to understand why her life on earth was cut so short. It is painful for me to envision that I won’t get to grow old with her, hear her laugh, or see her beautiful smile. Even though her time with us was so short, and I was not ready to let her go, I will miss her so very much and her memory will be ever present in me as long as I live. I am so grateful to have met Sandra, grateful of the time I had with her, and I cherish her friendship and treasure the moments that we spent together.  

Although we have lost a wonderful human being, she inspires us all to live our lives on this earth in the way that she did with kindness, courage, strength, compassion, generosity and love.

In closing, I want to say that you Wags have been a blessing to me and to everyone here that is lucky enough to have known you.   I will never forget you, and someday we will be together again. Rest in peace my friend. I love you."

"We just wish to offer our condolences to all her friends, family and associates for such a great loss. She was always so full of fun - plenty of laughter there. She's a good friend to my wife Martha and I. We
were always happy to see her in spite of whatever work had to be done
on us. We treasure our memories until we see you again."

"Dear Sandra,

Three days ago we laid you to rest in a beautiful place.  I know your spirit is soaring with the angels now.  You must have been smiling down on all the hundreds of people who attended your visitation, vigil, funeral and fiesta.  You have touched our lives so deeply.  You have changed the way I see myself and others and I cannot thank you enough for opening your heart and your family to me.  Brian, Sarah, Irene, Gunner, and your Mom and Dad will remain a part of our lives!  I have included three pictures in your album.  Two are of your "fiesta" celebration of your life and the last one is a rainbow as seen from our deck.  I remember how much you loved that setting and I will always remember you sitting there every time we have a rainbow occur (which is often)!  Jim and I love you so much!  kb"

"Dr. Wagner will always have a place in our heart. She always had the best laugh and could put all of our fears at ease when we visited her. Over the past 12 years we refused to see anyone else but her for any dental needs we had.  She was truly an incrediable person and will be missed.  Rest in Peace! - Andersen Family"

This tribute was added by Pia Edgar on 19th August 2014

""Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."  Dr. Wagner - You would dance around the office - that is the only way to describe it - greet us all with a big smile and happy "hello sunshine", well guess what - YOU were that ray of sunshine and we will all miss you so much.  You were our dentist but we feel like we lost family. We hope the tears and sorrow of your family and friends in time will become smiles and laughter, remembering all the love and joy you brought into their lives.  With love and respect, Pia and Family"

"My name is Marjan and I had a privilege of knowing Sandra as my friend.
Some people come into our lives and leave foot prints on our hearts and we are NEVER EVER the same.  They celebrate the true essence of who we are and have faith in all that we may become.
Some people awaken us to new and deeper realizations, for we gain insight from the passing whisper of their wisdom.  Throughout our lives, we are sent precious souls, meant to share our journey, however brief or lasting their stay, they remind us why we are here.  
Some people come into our lives to cast a steady light upon our path and guide our every step, their shinning belief in us help us to believe in ourselves.
Some people come into our lives to teach us about LOVE, the love that rests within ourselves.
Some people come into our live and they move our souls to sing and make our spirits dance.  They help us to see that everything on earth is part of the incredibility of life and that it is always there for us to take of its joy.
Some people come into our lives and leave foot prints on our hearts and we are NEVER EVER the same....
I know you all agree that Sandra was that special someone that made a difference in all of our lives, so my dear beautiful friend, Sandra:
I have to believe that you still exist, somewhere
That you still watch me, sometimes
That you still love me, somehow
I have to believe that life has meaning, somehow
That I am useful here, sometimes
That I make small differences, somewhere
I have to believe that I need to stay here for sometime
That all this teaches me, something
So that I can meet you again, somewhere...

I like to share this poem by Charlie Daniels for our beautiful Sandra with her new wings:
"A brief candle, both ends burning, an endless smile, a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times, A hand shake and a sip of wine.
So say it loud and let it ring.  We are all a part of everything.
The future, present and the past.  Fly on proud bird
You are free at last."
My dearest Sandra enjoy your journey home.

"My dear friend it was 20+ years ago that our family met you while you were working in the small town of Ft Lupton CO. We followed you all around Colorado because we knew that you were more than a dentist to our family. You were a friend!  You saw our boys Freddy and Andrew grow into young men and were an inspiration to them. We will miss seeing your lovely smile especially hearing that giggly laughter early in the morning. We will also miss  our talks about El Chuco (El Paso) and about our Mexican culture. We know that you are watching over all of us and at times even laughing at the silly things we do. We love you and miss you Amiga!

An Angel in the Stars

God saw I was getting tired
as he put his arms around me
as he whispered come with me

There is a place for you in heaven
where there is no suffering and no pain
all you have to do is look up to the sky
and know that you will see me

As I am an angel in the stars
what a great place to be
I am an angel of God and a
sparkle I shall be

Know that I'm watching over you
just look up and see
I'm looking watching over you
please don't be sad for me

I'm your angel in the stars
where I am happy now
you will see and one day
you will be with me"

"Dear Sandra,

Tomorrow your family and friends will celebrate your home coming! May you rest in peace and the Lord continue to wrap his arms around you.  I will keep you and your family in my daily prayers as I pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament. May he comfort your family and friends, give them strength and inner peace in their time of need.

Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for  I am your God I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand"

"God saw she was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around her
And whispered. "Come with me."

With tearful eyes we watched her suffer
And saw her fade away.

Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
She is now at peaceful rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best."

The Gate in Heaven is now open to accept a beautiful Angel with a beautiful heart and soul. Sandra, continue dancing and enjoy your favorite wine in heaven until we all meet again. <3<3<3"

"Sandra, words are not enough to describe what a beautiful person you were. I will never forget meeting meeting you in junior high school.  You started to talk to me in English then Spanish and asked all kinds of questions regarding me and my family.  When I told you I had 1 brother, you could not wait to meet him. You said I was lucky to have a brother.  Family was always number one for you and Brian and Sarah were such blessings.
We graduated high school and life began and you were driven by the desire to succeed and no obstacle was to big to overcome for you. You did it and our high schools reunions were awesome becuase only a few achieved higher education let alone doctor status. Our next high school reunion will not be the same. You were a great friend and always took me in no matter where I was at in my life. You never judged me only loved me.  I will miss you.  Cindy Cavazos"

Our family has been sitting in your chair for 15+yrs. and you always treated us with special genuine concern. We valued your expertise!!!  I never wanted to leave your office, it was like happy hour!!  We talked about our life, our travels, our kids and the date we made for the Broadmoor New Year's Eve Gala. You called me " a passionate Hispanic"   I will always HOLD on to those words. You left us too soon...but you are free. I will miss you sweet angel and my family will never forget you.

You have left such an impact on so many people here on earth. I have read all the messages people are leaving you and it is not surprising how much you have touched so many people in so many different ways. Your contagious laugh and your beautiful smile will always be remembered by all of us. You lived a very full life in such a short time, and inspired us to live life to the fullest.  You are gone cousin but will never be forgotten. R.I.P. until we meet again!"

I will always love you, Mama Wagner!"

"Coming to an appointment with you was like a great girls day out! And I got the best "smile makeover" on the side. My life has been enlarged by knowing you and wish you peace.  I will take the liberty of stealing your style and ease of discussing advice and quips on the job in the hope I can succeed in a small measure with my clientele as you have.  You allowed people to feel good about accepting help without feeling bad or judged. Hey, Imitation is the greatest compliment! You live in our memories."

She gave great advise because she spoke from experience. I have learned some valuable lessons from her. I will miss you. You weren't just my cousin you were my friend. I thought I had more time and that was the problem, there is never enough time. I will forever remember your laugh. I love you Sandra! Fly......... be free!"

"Offering sincere condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Death was never part of our Heavenly Father’s original purpose for mankind. In fact, in His word the Bible He calls it an enemy (1Cor. 15:26) which He promises in the very near future to do away with (Rev. 21:4,5) At that time tragedies and accidents will be a thing of the past,  no one will ever get sick (Isaiah 33:24) and there will be a reuniting, a bringing back to life instead of losing (John 5:28,29) Please allow these words to be of comfort to you and give you hope. (2Cor. 1:3,4)"

She called me her problem child well I want you to know that you were one of a kind. They don't make them like you anymore. Your work here was done and your father said it was time for you to come home. You were loved by more people than you know. You are one in a million. This is not goodbye because one day I will see you again."

Dr. Wagner, We love you and will miss you.  No one has ever given me the dental care that you have.  You will be sorely missed.  Penny"

"Dr. Wagner, what an amazing woman and human being. Always so full of life and joy. Such a warm, kind and tender soul. Your infectious laughter I will never forget. My best memory is always walking into your office and being greeted with, "Hey there cutie? How are those beautiful kids and that husband of yours?" You always created an environment filled with positive energy. I will always remember the gentle care you took of my kids. You will be truly missed! God has gained an incredible Angel! My Prayers and thoughts are with the Wagner family. We celebrate the life of such a beautiful person, friend and dentist ! Always in our hearts, Michael and Maria Moore."

This tribute was added by Ashley Moore on 15th August 2014

"Dr. Wagner, when I first met you I was deathly afraid of going to the dentist but was in there all the time, literally ever other week. Any time I had to have anything done, I'd have extra people & my parents there holding me down just so you could do whatever you needed to do. Even though I had this undying fear, I went through a phase where I wanted to be a dentist. Through my fears you sparked something in me that will never go away, you are a special kind of person!  I used to love when I had a dentist appointment because it meant going in to see you & you always made me feel so at home whenever I came in. Of course we would always reminisce about the days when I'd be there kicking & screaming & how I somehow became the absolute opposite! I wish I could've seen you one more time but I know you're in a better place now & I'll never forget all the things I have learned from you. You are one of my greatest role models & you will be missed dearly!  My thoughts & prayers go out to your family."

Ron and I have known and loved you for over 20 years...we shared a lot and when I lost my Caroline, you cried with me.  You have two beautiful children that will be strong and carry on because that's the way they were raised. They will make you proud. Rest well my dear sweet friend."

Until I came to see you as my dentist, I suffered severe dental phobia. I'd take tranquilizers and demand gas. But when I came to see you, you said - "No. No gas," laughed your uncompromising hearty laugh and promised "It will be fiiine" waving your arm dismissively and drawing out the end of your sentence the way I often heard in the coming years. And things were fine - for the next 10 years that I was a patient with your practice. I was so relieved I'd found such a young and competent dentist and would never have to find another the rest of my life. Over the years, I have grown to view you and your staff as close friends.  My respect and admiration for you grew as I went from arriving at the dentist with fear and trepidation, to looking forward to the time I'd get to spend with my friends. Just by being who you were, you made everyone who walked through your doors feel like they'd arrived home to the loving arms of family.

Sandra, I will miss your hearty smile and boisterous laugh. I will miss your inherent gentleness and humble confidence. Along with every other human being who knew and loved you, I will miss all that you are.  

Rest well my lovely, kind and generous friend.

Tam Barthel"

"My sweet Mommy,
     You have been my angel on earth. You've always been my rock, my comfort, my guidance and my best friend. You have touched so many people with your bright and kind soul. I miss you with everything I have Mom. But, even though you are not physically with us anymore, I still feel you. I find a little bit of you everyday in all the people you held dear and even in myself. I feel so incredibly lucky to have had you as long as I did and lucky to have all the wonderful people you've left behind to support me and help me feel your spirit so alive. You were the glue that held everyone together and the warm place everyone called home. A piece of me went with you the day you left us. But I also know a part of you stayed with me. I am going to use that to carry on your legacy and to keep me strong and driven. I promise to make you so proud. I love you to the moon and back.

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

May you rest in peace Amiga. We love you and miss you dearly!

"Cuando la vida te separa de un ser querido, el recuerdo de su sonrisa es la mejor forma de salir adelante, lamentablemente perdimos a un ser que amamos, y sentimos profundamente un dolor que nos traspasa el alma, pero hay algo que ni siquiera la muerte puede romper: EL AMOR, aunque ya no podamos tenerte físicamente Sandy, siempre podremos cerrar nuestros ojos para abrazarte, porque estamos conscientes que ya no estarás con nosotros, pero en nuestra presencia, siempre…porque bien lo dice la palabra de Dios, El que cree en mí, aun que muera, seguirá vivo….Querida Sandy siempre estarás en nuestros corazones, extrañaremos muchísimo tu inigualable sonrisa, tu alegría y la sencillez de tu persona, el señor te eligió y te llevo a su presencia y a pesar del gran dolor que nos ha causado tu partida, solo nos queda agradecer tu amor, tu paz y la certeza de saber que ante todo no es el último adiós, sino es solamente un hasta luego…FAMILIA REY HERNANDEZ."

"Sandra was and will forever remain an inspiration to us all. She lived her life with a certain energy and passion that was truly impressive. She was such an integral part of my family-- always brought us together and fostered memories and adventures that I will hold dear as long as I live. Her charisma and kindness will be missed incredibly. She had a special way of bringing out the best in people, and always made everyone around her feel joyful and comfortable.
Sandra was incredibly warm, loving, and thoughtful. She was also hilarious, intelligent, and radiantly beautiful. It's hard to imagine that a person like this can even exist -- but she did-- and we are all better for having known her.
I cannot express how deeply saddened I am by her death because she was so unbelievably important to so many. I feel the most sadness for those closest to her-- especially to her children, my wonderful cousins. I can't imagine the magnitude of their pain and loss right now but I hope that they find some solace in knowing that their mom was absolutely one of the best people EVER and that they were so lucky to have her as a mother and role model.  
The only thing I can think to do to honor such an inspirational person is to live in a way that would make her proud. I will every day strive to be more like Sandra-- to be both gentle and outgoing, hardworking and fun-loving, charismatic and sensitive, graceful, empathetic, and most of all, to radiate love from within. I love her dearly and will miss her always. xoxo"

She was more than just a dentist to us, but a wonderful friend. A friend that carried such a bright soul and whose smile was bright enough to captivate anyone in sight. I'll always remember her laugh echoing loudly through the halls of her office. Thank you for the wonderful memories and for taking care of our family as if we were part of your own. My condolences to close family and friends of the amazing Dr.Wagner. Rest in Peace."

You were so strong, but that does not surprise me. You have always been the strong, intelligent, and beautiful one.  You have been a great role model to all of our family and to our children.  My girls talk about you all the time.  I tell them stories of your former equestrian life... ; )  I tell them how you looked so amazing and fearless when you would ride Beauty.  Everything you have done you have done with great success!

"We're so small in this big world that we try so hard to hang on to those around us for fear that we might get lost. I'm so lucky to have had you to grab onto and lean on. I fell since you floated away but you left me so many people that you loved to pick me back up. I just hope I can stay up and stand as strong as you did. There is a darkness I fight everyday without your light, my sunshine. You shined so brightly on us, the world seems so dark now. But the clouds still part, even if just for an instant, when I remember your voice and smile and the memories we had with our amazing family and friends. I would have given everything to have made some more. I still feel your presence when I close my eyes and I convince myself you're just in your bed asleep but I'm afraid to open them again because I know you're gone and I can't just hug you and wake you up and kiss you. I love you more than life itself and I know you do too. I'll do my best to make you proud and live a life full of love and generosity. I'll talk to you everyday, you are always with me. I love you to infinity mom."

I smile every time I think of you, and then I am saddened. Not because of you moving on to the next life and the wonderful place you are now,......but because your Family, and the rest of us,..... no longer have your great smile and the sunshine you brought every day,.....in our current lives.    So selfish we are.
We do have the memories though, and may we all carry a piece of that positive attitude, in our hearts as long as we live.
You will be remembered well !
....and every time I see one of your Family, I will see your smile,.. & then I will smile.
May the Lord Jesus Christ hold you dear in eternity--Try not to stir things up too much !

It has been my privilege.

"Our family will never forget you Dr Wagner !!! We have never had such a caring, generous, fun, wonderful dentist who remembered names, children's journeys, etc. Your jokes and laughter I always looked forward to at our visits. You will be sorely missed . You are truly a new angel with the Lord. Please shine down on us and smile !
The Martineau Family"

"Sandra, we will miss you so much, not just as our dentist but as a wonderful friend who brought light and laughter to everyday. Not often we have the actual pleasure of meeting a dentist we can laugh for hours with and enjoy. You always just beamed with happiness and fun.  
Each time we enter the Southlands area, we know we will feel your warm smile and famous laughter breezing by us, and we will remember you. We will always miss and remember you. We will pray for all who loved and will miss you, as we know there are many.
David and Deb Altman"

"Thinking of you today.  Thinking of how high energy you always were, how many nasty jokes and funny stories you told me while in your chair at the office, how you always gave my mom a hard time about being from "Guatemala" when she really was from Nicaragua, and never forgetting how I would always beg you to write me a doctor's note so I didn't have to go back to school when I was in high school (you never did!!!).  You've been apart of my life and my family's life for so long.  I hope you find your energy back and tell all those nasty jokes/funny stories when you make it up there with all the angels :) Rest in paradise Dr Wagner <3"

"What a woman!  I've known Sandy since I was twelve.  She acted as a mentor and friend, not just a sister in law as I grew up.  We shared holidays, birthdays, good times and stressful situations. She even guided me and and held my hand during my first pregnancy and was there for the birth of my first born.  

Words just seem so inadequate to express the sadness and void we feel with Sandy's passing. We are here to support you.  Wishing her family peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.  

With sincere love and sympathy,

Jorgina, Mike, Matthew, Madison and Brooke."

"Since heaven has become your home
I sometimes feel I am so alone
And though we now are far apart
You hold a big piece of my heart
I never knew how much I'd grieve
When it was tie for you to leave
Or just how much my heart would ache
From that one fragment you would take
GOD lets this tender hole remain
Reminding me we'll meet again
And one day all the pain will cease
When he restores this missing piece
He'll turn to joy my every tear
With thoughts of you I hold so dear
And they'll become my special way
To treasure our reunion day

Dear Beautiful Angel you are gone too soon, and you are dearly loved, sadly missed and forever in our hearts.  You made such contribution to so many peoples lives and I miss you so much......even I know you are with us all the time.....Go on and go home to heaven....
With all my heart, love you

"Cousin Sandra,

I'll never forget that girls night out we had about 12 years ago. You treated us to some amazing food at a very nice restaurant downtown and then we went out dancing at Proof nightclub. That night you had this idea to make us all doctor's, so any time a guy came over and tried to talk to us you did the introductions. It was so fun messing with the guys like that. That was an incredible night. We all danced so much. I'll never forget you. You're home now. Until we meet again. Love always <3"

     El dia que llegaste a este mundo tu madre te recibió en sus brazos que fue un 30 de noviembre de 1967. Y el día que nuestro sr. padre te necesitaba vino por ti el día 12 de agosto 2014. Ese ultima noche dormiste en los brazos de tu madre como el día que naciste. Te voy a extrañar por el resto de me vida. Te quiero y te adoro.
                                                                     Tu Papa,

     When you arrived to this world on the 30th of November in 1967,  your mother received you in her arms. And the day that our Father needed you and came for you was the 12th of August 2014. That last night you slept in your mother's arms just like the day you were born. I am going to miss you the rest of my life. I love you and adore you.

                                                                         Your Dad,

     Cuando veniste a este mundo imediatamente volteaste a verme y senti que había llegado un ángel y no me equivoque.
     Fuiste una nina hermosa. Luego te hiciste adolescente y nunca me diste una problema. Te dedicaste a estudiar y yo te decia "Sandy descansa de tanto estudiar. Vete a divertir" y salias por unas dos horas y volvias estudiar. Pero lograste lo que tu querias ser… te casaste y nacieron dos hermosos niños, Brian y Sarah. Luego, te graduaste de medicina y fuiste una gran profecional dentista famosa. Te voy a extranar el resto de me vida.
                                                                         Tu Mama,
Love you Forever.

     When you came into this world you immediately turned to me and I knew that an angel had arrived and I was not mistaken.
     You were a beautiful little girl and you grew to be an adolescent and never gave me any problems. You dedicated yourself to studying and I would always tell you "Sandy take a break! Go have fun" and you would go out for a couple of hours and go right back to studying. But you accomplished everything that you wanted to. You got married and two beautiful children were born… Brian and Sarah. Then you graduated from medical school and you were a grand, professional, famous dentist. I am going to miss you the rest of my life.
                                                                      Your Mom,
Love you forever."

"Sandy, My Beautiful Niece! You left this earth too early and too young. I prayed for you to be healed so that you could stay here with us. But god called you home, and I don't question his faith, you are now in heaven with the rest of our loved ones. I remember when you were a baby and your mother was trying to get you off the bottle, you would cry and I would sneak the bottle back to you haha.
You were such and amazing Mother and Dentist. I love you so much! I pray the lord keeps your family strong from the horrible pain they must feel. I love you and will see you on the other side my precious!"

"“What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not that you passed on, but that you lived.  And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget”            Peggy Van Horn & Meredith Zier"

"Sandra was one of those rare people in life that had a brighter flame than everyone else. Whatever she did she did it with excitment and happiness and did it to the extreme. She raised two amazing children that will continue to carry on her many wonderful attributes she passed down to them and I am sure make her a very proud mother. I have many great memories to think about with you. I know you are at peace and watching down on everyone. I will keep my promise I made to you.

Rest In Peace!!!"

"Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right

To Sandra and family and friends....These are the lyrics to Fly by Celine Dion.  They are a wonderful tribute to our dear friend.  We miss you and we also know that you are already spreading joy where you are now.  We love you!  Jim and Kay Bowman"
