Our deepest condolences to the family of Sandra Richards. At such times, very comforting is God’s promise in the scriptures at Acts chapter 24 verse 15 that there is going to be a resurrection.

Sincere condolences to Sandra’s Family and Friends,

Sandra was a lovely lady, I had the pleasure of knowing her thru my work . Both at the Hoyles/ Escasoni Complex and also at PVT. Always appreciated what you did for her, sorry to hear of her passing. God Bless

Our condolences to Diane, Nicole and families on the passing of our special friend, Sandra.

Over the years we have created beautiful memories with Sandra and we learned Sandra is a woman to her word and dedicated friend. My daughter Gillian will miss Sandra’s friendship and Sandra always “looking out for Gillian” in every way, and more so should I not be visiting PVT. This special bond and sense of security will be totally missed by Gillian, though Sandra will continue to do so as our ANGEL.
FLY HIGH WITH THE ANGELS SANDRA. You are now at peace with your Mom and family.

Sandra, will always remain in our hearts
Love Rosina, Gillian – your PVT Family Special Friend and Sheila Critch, which we were honoured you called Mom.
