  15. Bob and family,
    Simple words that hopefully let you know you are in thought and prayer.
    A favorite quote by Leo Buscaglia:
    “I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.”
    My heartfelt sympathy,

  16. So so sorry to hear this sadness. Remembering Sandy’s smile ever since the ‘oys first got together, then later at Corner Acre, and so many other happy times. This world has lost a great lady.

  17. I can not put it in words how much my Aunt Sandy meant to me. I could always count on her to tell me the truth and not sugar coat any thing. She was one of the strongest people I knew. I will forever be so grateful to her. I love you Uncca Bob. I am praying for peace for you.

  18. Dear Bob, Family, Bonnie, and Rick,

    Your Palatka Family is so heartbroken to learn about Sandy’s passing. Since I have not been able to attend St. John Lutheran Church, Eula White informed me about her passing.

    Please know how much we loved Sandy and know that she is in Heaven with her Lord. Please also know how much we love all of you and are keeping you in our hearts and prayers. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to comfort you.

  19. Bob and family,
    I am sad to hear the news of Sandy’s passing. I have only talked to you both a couple of times since graduation, but have many fond memories of you both.
    My thoughts are with you at this time.

  20. So sorry for your loss, Bob. Being a fellow classmate, it’s like losing a member of our family. May God be with you in this time of need, and you will be in my prayers. Brad

  21. I am sorry for loss. I am sure it is hard to handle the heartache of losing a loved one. She always nice to me in school and I always thought she was a good person. I’m sure she will be rewarded in eternity.

  22. Bob, I am so sorry to hear of your loss! I pray for God’s comfort for you and your family as you move forward, believing that it will be provided.

  23. Bob, I am so sorry for your sudden loss after Sandy’s diagnosis a short time ago. My heart goes out to you. It’s hard for us to lose another classmate, as well. In reading about her life, I can see that she lived life abundantly and touched the lives of those around her. Prayers of comfort are being sent to you and your family.

  24. My condolences to Bob, Pammy, Roy and all the rest of the family. I grew in Day and remember the Collins family very well. (Saturated with girls, poor Roy.) I met Sandy’s husband Bob last fall up at Flagship and had a great time doing Karaoke with him. Again my condolences for your loss.

  25. I am so sorry, Bob and Sandy’s family, for your loss. It just doesn’t seem fair that Sandy is gone, but what a joy she must be experiencing with our Lord. I will continue to pray for you all as you go on without her.

  26. We feel so fortunate to have met Sandy and known her even for the short time that we did. Every conversation that we’ve ever had with Sandy we felt as though she genuinely listened to everything we had to say and made us feel valued. She was a great woman married to a wonderful man. We will miss Sandy very much. We love you Bob, Joan, Kenny and family. Go rest high on that mountain Sandy. Your work on earth is done.

  27. So sorry to hear of Sandy’s passing. Sending prayers of comfort for you and the rest of the family as you live with this loss in the coming months. Losing a classmate always feels like a loss for the rest of us in the class too.

  28. Bob and family,
    My heart aches for you. Sandy will be remembered fondly as one on sweetest girls in our class of 1970. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

  29. Awesome secrety. Remembering giving her my meal ticket. I never saw someone move so fast while collecting meal tickets. Then her telling me I was getting chicken pox and she never sent me home early. And also a sweet lady. You will be missed by all.
