    I didn’t know about Sandra’s death until I got to the radio station Sun. night and saw her obituary. I played a song in her memory. I loved her from way back when Gene Douglas was alive and we talked about that a lot. I thought I her so ofter and just knowing she was around. I thank God for her friendship over the years. She meant a lot to me. I am so sorry for your great loss, but she was a wonderful person and friend.

    My prayers are with this family. I’d known Mrs. Sandra since I was a little girl growing up in Chyrston Church of Christ. Her beautiful smile and loving heart was contagious. She had the most up beat personality and she will truly be missed here on this earth, but we’ll get to see her again in God’s glorious paradise.
