Sandra was a vibrant, spirited personality. She appreciated the arts, particularly the theatre and the symphony., and was also a big film buff.
Sandra had an abiding love for her family and friends, whether they (we) were bringing her joy or driving her nuts. We will miss her, all of us.
As noted already, you and your mother sure do resemble each other, Lisa. We have only recently become acquainted, so I feel somewhat lost not knowing your mother. She definitely sounds like a energetic ( You definitely get this from your mother) well loved person. I wish I could have met her. My condolences. You and Jim both have my love and prayers.
Oh Ross, I stumbled on this when searching for my neighbor’s obituary. I’m sorry for your loss.I
Love you buddy,
