My Aunt Sandy will and always will be one of my very favorite people in this world. Growing up, she was like a second mom to me. The time I spent at her house with my cousins are some of my greatest childhood memories. Even when they moved to Washington I felt that connection. There will never be anyone quite like her. I don't think I ever got mad or upset with her, and as much time as I spent with her family, I know I got in trouble a few times. She had the biggest heart and could never say no. Even if she wanted to, I don't think she used that word in her vocabulary. Her family and friends always came first. The love that she shared with so many people will never be forgotten. There aren't enough words to describe my Aunt Sandy. But one thing I can say is that I loved her with all of my heart and will miss her deeply. Until we meet again Aunt Sandy.... XO
