  1. Seeing Sandy’s picture brought back a flood of memories, I knew it was taken on Bonnie and Ed’s wedding day. I think I still have my bridesmaid dress tucked in a closet, what a fun day. But a day spent with Sandy was always a good day. Dancin’ at Nansen, listening to Seger belting out a tune in Sandy’s brown car, ordering last call at “The Hoot” or league bowling and taking all 8 points! Time spent with “the Bon girls” are truly some of my fondest memories. Bonnie and Patty, so sorry for losing so much in such a short time….Diane, Ed and now Sandy. I will tell and retell the times spent with all of you and how much fun we all had…girls being girls.

  2. Dear Patty
    We are saddened to read about Sandra. Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
    With deepest sympathies
    Ken and Arline Mahoney.
