Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, now and always! Our children, Blane Paul, Collette & Emilie, her step grand children are all saddened by the news. She will be surely missed by all. God Bless!

    I didn’t have a place to go after my divorce and Aunt Sandy had just lost Uncle Fred A. She told me to come stay with her until I got back on my feet. She helped take care of me and my kids. I was able to finish Nursing School so that I could get a job and take care of my family. That’s the way she was, she loved us all UNCONDITIONALLY. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for her family. I’m so grateful that I have many great memories with her. We were very blessed when it came to our Aunts and Uncles. We have all lost our parents now. I will forever be grateful for what she did for me. I will miss her, Jim you always have all of us to lean on. We love you and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
