    Sandy was an amazing mother-in-law. She supported me from the day we met and always made me feel important. When she passed I felt like my fan club was cut in half, consisting only of my dog now. The incredible thing about Sandy was how many people...  more

    I met Sandy in 2011 at Museum Place in Portland, Oregon when Linda Thyberg, another resident, started a book group. We quickly found that we had a lot in common. Our mothers had the same first name, Jean, and were close in age, her mom born in 1912 and...  more
