    Sandra provided so much love to our students. Taking the time to transport us to community / field trips. Even going as far as making sure that her bus students had a treat to tide them over until they got to school.A woman with a great heart and soul. Sandra will be missed by many.

    I was a friend of Sandra's for the past four years.  We met through our dogs (she has the mother of one of my dogs).  We bonded immediately.  I have been so sad since learning of Sandra's passing.  She was a good friend and we kept in touch and talked quite often.  I miss her and her wonderful sense of humor.  She could always make me smile.

    My prayers have been with your family since I found out.

    God bless,

    Kathy Munoz
