Post a Condolence

I can’t believe you are gone. I never knew when you would call. Could be anytime. We met when we were born & again when we were 12. From then we had a lot of fun. Then that racoon you had in Belvidere would scare the crap out of me. You always said when I had my baby that it was going to look like it. Then the time we highlighted your hair. I hated it, you loved it. We had fun. You were always talking about your children. You thought the world of them. You left this world to soon. I will miss your late night laughs. I’ll see you again. Love Diania

Shocked to hear this! She was a nice lady who had amazing decorating and cooking talents. She opened her home and heart to many. We enjoyed having her, Teddy, and the rest of the family as neighbors for many years. My family sends their condolences to Teddy and Heather, as well as the rest of Sandra’s family and friends.

Teddy and Heather, I am so sorry for your loss. May she be at peace with your dad. I loved your Mom’s laugh and I had so much fun making Christmas cookies with her. She will never be forgotten.
