    Fred and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you in the passing of Sandra. We go way back to the good old days growing up on the farms West of Gilman. She will always be remembered by many as such a great person.

    So sorry for your loss.

    I worked for Sandra and Fred after we moved to Maysville in 1985. She and Fred both were fun to work for.

    Her family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    We first knew Sandra as our insurance agent, but she was more than an agent! We always enjoyed seeing Sandra out and about and reminiscing about years past. We are so sorry for your loss, which is ours as well. Prayers in your grief and in your celebration of her life…
