Sandy was such a special friend and fellow musician. I used to think I was a perfectionist until I met Sandy. We always enjoyed getting to work with the ladies of the Baylor Singing Seniors during sectionals.
I will always treasure the last day I spent with Sandy. I took all the music for Peace Lutheran's Celebrate Advent program out to the ranch. Sandy, as usual, sight read all of it almost perfectly. After working on the music, Sandy showed me the newly remodeled bathroom, and we talked about the trip to Italy. It was a special day.
Sandy was admired and loved by all at Peace Lutheran who knew her. I always knew with Sandy at the piano if anything went wrong, she would be with us.
...I will always treasure her friendship.
Peace Lutheran is dedicating our 2019 Celebrate Advent event in Memory of Sandy.
