Len, my condolences to you and your family. My fondest memory of Sandra is that when a days work in Kin were complete at a convention, she was there to help everyone relax and feel comfortable. Her laughter was infectious and she always had a fun game or story to keep folks alert. She was, among her many attributes, a dedicated Kinette. Our world, and each of us, are better because of her. Happy to meet, sorry to part.........Until we meet again....Yours in Kin Bob Holmes

Len and family:
Words fall short of expressing our sorrow for your loss. We are deeply sorry to hear about the passing of Sandra. To say the least Sandra was loving and true to everyone around her, especially her family. There was no wrong in her heart, just melting smiles.
I know first hand how profound a loss it is when you realize that she will no longer be there for all the events in your life. I can tell you though that the very best way to mark her passing is by taking solace in your memories of the special lady who enriched your lives, remember the good times, the laughter and the love, those are the gifts she left to you to pass on for generations to come.
Please accept our sincere condolence, we wish we could be there to celebrate her life with you but be assured we are there very much in thought.
Graham & Mona
