Wendy and Chad. I am so very sorry for your loss and regret that I was unable to be with you at Sandra's funeral. She was a tremendous support to me and our swim team at McMinn. Sandra was a great friend and I certainly appreciate her support and the many bus miles she drove for us. She was a sweet lady and while you both, and your families, will certainly miss her, you will have many sweet memories as you reflect on her life.
