Sandra, Your son in law (Jack) was very kind to add many new pictures bringing back fun memories of you and family, celebrating your 77th birthday. I just enjoyed living through many good times of our marriage, as well as some very cute pictures of you when you were a small tot. We all miss you and will always remember to celebrate your special day in September. Love you, Gerry

Happy Birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to share a few more of your photos with the family. I hope you can look upon them and smile as we do. Love you.

Happy Birthday, Mom! I realize writing messages on this tribute site is silly, as you can't read them. Still...feels good to acknowledge it in some manner. I picture you up in Heaven with your parents, our Candlewood neighbors, playing bridge and eating chocolate covered raisins. And smiling...always smiling. Love you bunches--- Daughter

Hi San, I know you've been watching over me and shaking your head.... I really can't remember when I've been so blessed. Things happen for a reason, and I look to you to tell me "Tricia you are crazy!" I think of you from time to time, and also Sheri. Please continue to guide me and nudge me from time to time... Hugs forever.

As others have said, time is too short. I still remember your smile, your laugh and your witty humor. Our house has not been the same since your departure. Still thinking of you and what you're doing now. I wonder if it is as beautiful as we all hope.

Dear Sis, I didn't forget you but I was away. I still think of you and wish that you were here to talk with me about life and family. You are always in my thoughts. I miss you.
Posted by Gerry Klein on 11th June 2017
So sorry, dear, that I missed sending you my love by one day. However, as you know you have been with me ever since your passing. Time just continues to move too fast and sooner than later I will be with you. Until then, I "touch" you almost every day as I pass through the guest room. Love and miss you!
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 10th June 2017
Motherrrrrrr?.......Daughterrrrrr? Remember, this is the way we always answered the phone when we knew it was each other! Hope you stop in once in a while and know I'm thinking of you. Missing you always.....Love you bunches!!

Five years, and I miss you still. Been staying in touch with Sheri, but you already know that I'm sure. Will drink to our friendship tonight with a glass of wine. Happy Birthday to an incredible woman. Hugs, Tricia

Hard to believe that it's been five years ago that Sandra left us at such a young age. Her kindness and the love of family and friends lives on with all of us who had the privilege of knowing her. I do miss her grace and love that so eloquently surrounded her. Love you always!
Posted by Mike Pozdol on 10th June 2016
Hey Sis, Can't believe that it's been 5 years already. I miss those talks that we had.

Hi Mom, As Sheri mentioned, we lit a Wish Lantern in your honor tonight. I uploaded the video for all to see, hopefully you too. Love, Jackie

Happy Birthday! We miss you tons.
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 20th September 2015
Happy Birthday, Mom!! So many times I want to pick up the phone and call you--- for a questions I have, an opinion I need, an ear to listen to my ranting or to just say "Mother.....Daughter." As always, Jack and I will be releasing a Wish lantern into the evening sky; keep your eye out for it! Hope you're having some champagne or a glass of wine, you know I will. Love you bunches--

It's hard to let a forever friend go. You are with me on the golf course, in quiet moments..... I know you are watching over us all from above. Miss you so much... Happy birthday my sweet, loving, kind and generous friend. I learned a lot from you.
Posted by John Kolarik on 11th June 2015
Hi Mom, Four years....why does it continue to hurt so? I realize how lucky I was to have you for 41 years, however, I find myself always needing to run things or situations by you for your advice. Hoping you may let me know the answers in your own way, soon. I know this may seem silly, but once in a while I will take out your beloved "moo-moo" and hold it tight, remembering you in it and wishing you still were. Still missing and loving you terribly-----

It's been 4 years and although I try it's difficult to remember the sound of your voice. There's been many changes over the years that I wish I could tell you about. Every time something great happens or every year when your birthday or Mother's Day rolls around I still have to urge to pickup the phone and want to call until I realize I can't. I am lucky because I have so many wonderful memories and every time I walk on a beach I think of you. I still think about you every day and I know that even though I cannot physically say it I know you are my angel looking down upon me helping and guiding me to be the best I can be and can see every good moment. I love you forever!

Well dear friend, you are still with us every Mon. night at Mah-jongg. There's a big gold star on your set, we call it "Sandy" and it travels from house to house each week. We even yell at you when you keep us from getting any jokers....cut it out ok? I'm keeping your wine glass full and your seat warmed up!!
Posted by John Kolarik on 10th June 2015
Another year has passed since you left and we think of you often. I can still picture you shuffling around in the morning working on your cross-word puzzles. Funny, she was a wiz at cross-words but failed miserably at Sudoku :) Still missing you...
Posted by Gerry Klein on 10th June 2015
It's hard to believe that it's been four years since you have left me. While I have met a very sweet young lady with your same name, I sometimes believe that you sent her to me just to keep me in the straight and narrow. Love forever!
Posted by Mike Pozdol on 10th June 2015
It had been 4 years and I still miss her. You will always be remembered sis.
Posted by Gerry Klein on 21st September 2014
Dearest Sandra, another year has past since you left us and while our thoughts are with you evey day we find peace that you are in a happy place with family and friends, that have passed, celebrating your special day. Anya and Maverick have now joined you giving you some enjoyment. Get your frisbee out and play with them. I do so much miss your love and gentleness and I promise you that we will again let you visit your favorite place, the bridge to Fort Myers Beach. All my love, forever!
Posted by Mike Pozdol on 20th September 2014
Well Sis, you are always on my mind. I miss those infrequent chats which I now wish were more frequent. I wiah that we could have those holiday calls which we always made to each other. I miss you very much.
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 20th September 2014
"Motherrrr??" " It's Daughter!" Ahhh loved how we started our phone conversations, lol. Happy Birthday to you! I bet you will be having a glass or two of wine with many others later tonight. Missing you always and every day! Please keep a lookout for your wish lantern, to be released again into the night sky. Love you--
Posted by John Kolarik on 20th September 2014
Happy Birthday Mom, We are thinking of you on this day. I posted some more photos of you and the family. It is nice that you saved them for so many years and now we have them to share with all. If you see Anya playing with another, don't be alarmed. His name is Maverick and you will love him as his personality is infectious...just like yours.

Hello Cousin I just wanted you to know that you are still missed. I think of you often, and remember only the good. Isn't that the way it is suppose to be!
Posted by Tricia Donegan on 20th September 2014
Hello my friend, I wanted you to know how much I still think of you, miss you, and how you are still a part of my life. I love seeing the photos John is posting..... makes me miss you more but keeps you alive in my heart in so many ways. I'm wondering if you are riding that pony you always wanted as a kid, and never got...... Happy, happy day to you.
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 10th June 2014
Mom, The other day I was going through some drawers and came upon your favorite robe...ok let's say it, mumu. :) I immediately saw you at our kitchen table, drinking your morning coffee and working on the crossword puzzle. You looked up and said "Morning, want some coffee?" Oh how I miss seeing you and hearing your voice. Seems like only months....Missing you every single day.
Posted by John Kolarik on 10th June 2014
Three years have passed yet we still think of you often. Words can not express how much you meant to Sheri and I. We think of you often, and laugh at the many memories you gave us. I posted some new photos of the early years for everyone to enjoy.
Posted by Gerry Klein on 10th June 2014
Dearest Sandra, It does not seem like three years sense you left me for a better place to continue your journey. While so many celebrate this day as the day you had peace, I do miss and think about you very day as I continue with my journey only to find you some day and share that glass of wine that we did so much while you were here with me. Love you always.
Posted by Adrienne Craig on 9th June 2014
Hi Cousin I still think of you often. I sent Mickey a message that a friend sent me about every time you see a Cardinal (bird) a love one that has passed has come to visit. Well I saw one yesterday, so I just know it was you. I will love you always.
Posted by Adrienne Craig on 24th December 2013
Hello Cousin I know you are watching over us, so I just wanted you to know that I still miss you! It is Christmas Eve and you are in my thoughts today and always.
Posted by John Kolarik on 20th September 2013
Thinking of you on your birthday... I remember your quiet reservation. Never wanting center stage yet everyone knew you were there. Your thoughtfulness and humor is still missed by your family but most importantly me. I will never forget your acceptance and love. I know...I know...stifle...miss you still
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 20th September 2013
Happy Birthday, Mom!! Thinking of you tonight as I look into the night sky.... You must be around, as we had a gorgeous sunset today and we just witnessed two owls on the roof "speaking" to each other. Missing and loving you always......Daughter

Thinking of Sandy today, and remembering all the fun times we had together, playing Mah Jongg, lunches and dinners (especially to celebrate birthdays), holiday parties, and working on the Club newsletter together. She is still missed.
Posted by Adrienne Craig on 11th June 2013
I talked to you often, and I know you are there. Thank you for being you!
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 10th June 2013
Mom we lit a wish lantern tonight and sent it into the night sky. Hope you were able to see it and read the message we wrote on it. Missing you every day, your voice, your laugh, and your endless listening skills. You are always with me Love, Daughter and Jack "ie"
Posted by Donna Miceli on 10th June 2013
It's hard to believe it has been two years since you left us. We remember and speak of you often. We will raise a glass of wine in your memory tonight at Mah Jongg. We miss you.
Posted by Tricia Donegan on 10th June 2013
Two years have gone by yet it seems like just last month... Sitting on the beach I am reminded of what a good friend you were to me and many others. I miss you but know you are in a better place. How do you like your new home in Heaven? Do things get dusty there??!!
Posted by Tricia Donegan on 24th March 2013
Just thought I'd check in with you. Watch over our friend Jim, he is getting nearer to seeing you. Life goes on, sometimes at a alarming rate. It's hard to catch my breath. At night, enjoying a glass of wine, I think of you .... and smile. Thank you for opening up your life to me. Cheers my friend.
Posted by John Kolarik on 21st September 2012
Happy Belated Birthday, Even thought I was with Sheri when she posted her message, I wanted to let you know that you are always in our thoughts. We hope you were able to see the wish lantern we lit last night in your memory. Love always...Jackie
Posted by Donna Miceli on 20th September 2012
Thinking of you today, Sandy and remembering our birthday lunches, Mah Jongg birthday celebrations and all the other fun times we had together. We miss you, but feel you are with us every time we open your Mah Jongg set (we put a gold star engraved with your name on it).
Posted by Tricia Donegan on 20th September 2012
As life continues, so does your memory, your essence. Yesterday I was cooking and used the wonderful whisk you had gotten me because when you came over to my house one day to help me cook, I didn't have one for you to use.. So 'just because' you showed up a couple of days later with it!! I love you like a sister, and miss you still.
Posted by Sheri Kolarik on 20th September 2012
Happy Birthday Mom, I am sure you know this, but I think of you everyday. I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday, up in heaven. We will celebrate your birthday and remember the times we shared. Jack and I will have a piece of carrot cake for you. I love you, Mom

A good friend can never be replaced, only remembered in that special place in the heart.....
Posted by Tricia Donegan on 12th August 2012
Even over a year later, I'm still feeling the loss. Bob & I sponsored a hole at our Rally For A Cure golf outing in Canadian Lakes. I thought it would make you smile to see your name and memory honored. I asked them to put it in a sand trap to emulate the beach........
Posted by Adrienne Craig on 14th June 2012
I could never forget Sandy! She touched everyone's life in more ways then one. Even now a year later I still remember some of her comments that come to me out of no where. I know that you are looking down at all of us and having a chat with my mother just like old times.
Posted by Gerry Klein on 14th June 2012
My dearest Sandra, I can not believe it's been a year sense you left us, and while I am doing what you asked me to do, I so dearly miss you and would do anything to have you back with me. You were always the love of my life even though we had some uncomfortable times many years ago. Sandra, you will always be in my heart. I love you.
