    Steve and all the family- I'm heartbroken to hear about Sandi. You will all always have a special place in my heart. I remember how delighted Sandi was to find we had Hardee's restaurants here when y'all came to get the 62 Olds wagon. Strange how something that simple can etch into your memories.

    For all who loved her. She was my friend for over 50 years.She was a 24/7 friend. Always ther for you.There was nothing phony about her. She could laugh at herself. She could be a terrible cheap-skate but then overly generous to friends and family. We traveled all over Europe together and she had the lovely wonder of a child seeing something for the first time. "Look spanish cows." Like suddenly they would moo in spanish. But driving thoughthe beautiful countryside in Austria we finally had to threaten that if she kept singing "the hills are alive" we would push her out of the car.  She loved life but hated her birthday. So of course i had to send her 10/15 nasty birthday cards about getting old.  We were young together.  We were old together. Jow lucky I was to have been her friend. I will never stop missing her.  I will never stop loving her.
