Dear Andy, I am so sorry for your loss. It broke my heart to talk with you and learn of Sandra's passing. While I never met her, during the roughly thirty years you have been my trusted CPA and financial advisor, you spoke so frequently and fondly of her that I felt as if I knew her myself. I know that she will be dearly missed. Please take care of yourself during this difficult time and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Andy-- I had the pleasure of being in Sandra's Thursday morning quilt group from 2000-2006. Even though I now live in Maine, I think of Sandra often, and was very sorry to hear that she has passed. To me, Sandra epitomized the perfect Southern lady, always with a kind word and a smile. And, her quilts were amazing, showing her grace in every stitch. I will miss her. Cathy Renault Topsham, Maine

Andy and family - I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your sweet wife Sandra. She was one of the kindest and most gentle spirited people I have ever met and I really wish I had gotten the chance to know her better. If she had days of not feeling well she certainly did not allow that to come through in her attitude towards people. We never understand why God chooses to take his angels home as he does, and it is not for us to question why. But I am most certain he recognized that she had been a good and faithful servant and chose to call her home. My prayers will continue to be with you and your family as you mourn this tremendous loss and as you focus on the days of healing ahead of you.

Andy and Family; I know how deep your feelings are just by the way you glowed when you spoke of family during our many years of your guidance on accounting. I only met her on the few occasions I was at your home in Durham. Remember you and your family are in our Prayers. Faith is what gets through times like this. CW, Donna & Tyler

Andy, I use to work with you and Sandra at City Hall many years ago. Sandra was a lovely person. I remember when you and she became engaged. She always said that she felt so safe with you. I remember when Andrew was born. He was such a pretty baby. He looked just like both of you. She was fortunate to have three sons and ten grandchildren. I know they brought her a lot of happiness. My condolences to you and your family. Janice Roop

Andy and Ira, Sandra may have been a twin but she was one of a kind. A very dedicated Christian, wife, mother, grandmother. Her legacy will continue. I am brokenhearted as I know all of you are. I Iove you. May God comfort you and give you peace and strength during this difficult time. Agnes
