    Rhonda, Crystal and Family – I was greatly saddened to learn of Saundra’s passing and share in your loss. While many years have passed since last spending time with your mother, I have always remembered fondly the hours we spent working together on a variety of projects and how I marveled at Saundra’s incredibly natural talent and artistic abilities. Her creations were one-of-a-kind amazing. She could create a work of art out of nearly anything and, always the perfectionist, labored continuously until she got it just right. It was always such a pleasure and honor working beside her or assigning a task and knowing with confidence that she would always accomplish her work beautifully and on a deadline. It was a joy getting to know here as a friend, colleague, and also as a cousin-in-law. My heart goes out to you all. Thanks for caring for her and being the daughters she loved so much. You were always first in her heart! Know I’ll be thinking of you all. Take care!

    I worked with Sandra at Garney’s. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I enjoyed visiting with her when we worked there. and enjoyed seeing her when she came to craft sales. I had missed seeing her but did not know she was sick. Please except my condolences as you travel down this road ahead of you. Knowing your Mom was the best. I know she will be missed. I always think of her at this time of the year, she always said she put up at least 10 Christmas tree’s. So I recall that of her each year. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will also exstend this to Jennie, whom I saw often at Bingo.

    Rhonda, Crystal, Jim, Jeanie and all the rest. My heart is sad at learning about the passing of my sweet neighbor. Rob and I were in Florida during this time and didn’t know. I so enjoyed being a neighbor to this kind, artistic, generous and wonderful woman. I will always remember her with a smile in my heart. She shared her love of gardening with me and gave me wonderful tips for growing things. You all will continue to be lifted in prayer and I apologize for the lateness of this condolence. May God forever give you peace and comfort as you remember her, too….with a smile in your hearts.
