Dear Jim, you know how Marie and I loved whenever we had a chance to get together with the both of you. Secretly I had a crush on your sweetheart but you were always around just to eat my apple pie which was often. Of course as you have said many times "You Can't Kid a Kidder. Sandy was one of a kind for sure. Marie and I will miss her but know in our hearts she is looking down and smiling. Jim, give it time, let us know when you have a need for some apple pie. We are here for you.. Love Marie & Pete

To the most wonderful mother in the world-I will miss you so much. You are my strength. I had the most wonderful childhood thanks to you and Dad, I will cherish the memories forever. You loved me unconditionally even at my worst moments. You were always there for me. You were the most loving, caring person to everyone you met. Everyone loved you. I thank God that I got to spend my life with you and I thank God that my children had you for a grandmother for all these years. You are the best and you will live in my heart forever. I love you mommy.

Hands down, best childhood memories ever with Aunt Sandy on Hope Road. So sad your family lost a saint; so glad you had her for so long. And happy that we got to spend good times together at Uncle Jimmy's and Aunt Sandy's suprise anniversary party. Her giving spirit will live on in all the children when you share your memories; I will tell my kids a few great stories tonight. To my cousins and Uncle Jimmy, just sending love.
