  1. I am very saddened to hear of Sandy’s passing. I loved her and will miss her laugh and sarcasm. She was a good person. Her family are in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. R.I.P. Sandy. You will be missed. ❤️

  2. I will always remember Sandy for the good times on the softball fields! One tournament in Isanti brought me into her family of softball players and a realization that we were already connected through family, born to play the game! Good times and great memories! Love ya girl🥎

  3. So sad to hear this! Sandy was one of my best friends in high school! One of my favorite memories was staying at her house and roller skating at Fish Lake if we stayed out too long we had to crawl down the driveway so the cows didn’t make any noise or it would wake up her dad. My friend, thank you for many wonderful memories and always being a true friend always! My thoughts and prayers to your family! May you Rest In Peace!
