Words can't express the sorrow, Sandy was the epitome of southern hospitality.There was no such thing as strangers...just friends she hadn't met yet. We will miss her gracious smile, her warm laugh..and most of all....her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family. God has truly received an angel. Our love and prayers to all.
