So I will continue to remember those times. Fred you are to be commended for looking after her as you did and the girls for helping, but wherever she has laid her head, she’s in a better place. My condolences to all.

Dear Fred ,Susan, Jaime, and family,
We were saddened to read of Sandra’s passing. She was a wonderful gal and a dear friend for a long time. We were classmates at Grace Hospital Class of ‘ 70, Sandra was a room mate with Joyce and Barb and I lived across the hall. We four became good friends instantly. I have so many happy memories of her. We kept in touch over the years and she was thrilled when the twins arrived. The last time I was with her was at our 45th reunion and we all knew that we were losing our dear sweet classmate. Memories are a great blessing , especially at this time. We wish you comfort and peace to sustain you always. Sending love and hugs, Hilda & Dave

To Jaime and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a wonderful lady. I have many great memories of her from our childhood growing up together and spending time at your house. I remember she would let us watch New Kids on the block videos on repeat, over and over again! Never getting annoyed with us! I am sure she was sick of hearing it! And she would take us to the mall and never complain at how much stickers and junk we bought. I have great memories of her always being fun and energetic and caring. Thinking of you all ❤️❤️🙏🙏
I worked with Sandy at the Waterford. Sandy was such a wonderful person to work with. Knowledgeable,, easy going and fun ,however her legacy was her skill, to provide care and compassion to all who needed it.
It was a privilege to know and work with Sandy.

Sincere condolences to Sandy’s family.
I had the pleasure to work with Sandy over the years.
She was a wonderful mentor and role model to me and many other inexperienced nurses over her years of service.Sandy always made you feel welcome to her unit.We knew that all would work out well with Sandy guiding us.
She was kind, compassionate, and freely shared her knowledge and skills to others.She was witty and had a wonderful sense of humour and always had a way to make our staff and patients feel better.
Her smile and laughter was contagious.
She met her calling as a psychiatrist nurse, that is for certain.
It was also very evident of her love and devotion to her family.She always spoke so fondly of Fred and her girls.She didn’t have grandchildren at that time.
Wishing Sandy’s family comfort in your cherished memories and know that your wife/mother/grandmother had such beautiful positive impact on so many and is fondly remembered for that.RIP beautiful Sandy
Deeply saddened to hear this, we shared many laughs and stories together and partied late into the night. She was one of the best nurses and a pleasure to work with. Condolences from myself and Corinne.
