I am so sorry for your loss. I met Sandy when I worked with her at BCBS. She was always kind and she made the best cheese cake the crust was the best and she would always tell me when she was making it and tell me she would try to save me a slice. I remember our talks on lynch outside in the sun when both our mates where sick. She was an inspiration .

Sandy was the most beautiful woman I got the pleasure to know. I worked with her at Blue Cross. I got the pleasure of meeting her family before her husband passed by doing a photo shoot for them. Sandy was a very kind and thoughtful woman and loved her family and friends dearly. I will miss you my friend.

Sandy was as much my friend as she was my work mom. She was truly one-of-a-kind. There are many memories, most include food, whether it was our mutual love for lemon cookies/cakes, Js bacon cheeseburgers, “harolds” from the gas station on State St, or her always knowing what the special of the day was at Culver’s. My favorite though was sitting with her in her kitchen eating a cake I won from a Krazy Cakes post, I hadn’t seen her in months because she’d been unwell from starting treatment and finally catching up felt like a dream...
The year she lost Randy, each of us in our unit also experienced personal losses. It didn’t matter how bad or sad Sandy felt, she always had an open heart, ear, and hug for someone else who needed to get their pains off their chest.
Her bright smile, the hair scrunching she would do after a new hair cut, her laugh, love, grit, determination, and even her groan when she was disappointed are all things I will cherish.
I am truly sorry for your loss.

M Misty Dowling March 18, 2021

I met Sandy at BCBS. She was a kind, beautiful person. I'm so sorry for your loss.
