Sandra was tough, straight forward, honest, giving, unselfish and generous, all in one great gal. She cared for a lot of human beings for many years, and now she is forever rewarded being cared for by the creator and his son.

Sending much love and comfort to Tony and family. Sandra had a heart as big as the world. 🙏💕
Sandra was such an amazing lady. She had more love than any one person could imagine. She loved her little one just as Jesus would want us to love. She will be truly missed but touched many lives young and old! Prayers to the family!
We most definitely lost a great one! Sandra was one of the strongest, most generous, and kind hearted woman I was blessed to have in my life. “She was my bonus mom” I could call her anytime and she would be there , wether it was for support, guidance, or convincing my stubborn mother to go to urgent care after hitting her head.
She will be dearly missed, but never forgotten. We love you Sandra, fly high and rest in peace.💜
Prayers for this sweet ladies family ❤️
