So sorry to hear about Sandy’s passing.  I worked with her at Irex Corp prior to her retirement and she attended many of the reunions we had in the years since.  Communicated with her in July regarding our most recent reunion and was saddened that she was unable to attend due to it coinciding with her last treatment.  She only said that they left her terribly tired and didn’t indicate how serious it had become.  Sandy loved our social events at Irex which normally centered around food and we could always count on her to theorize why the desserts had no calories.  The best theory was that all the calories escaped because we had open-toed shoes on.  She also convinced the dept to chip in for a belly dancer for the boss.  She had such a great sense of humor and enjoyed life to the fullest.  God rest her soul.  Take comfort in the knowledge that she and Jack are back together again, probably sailing on the open seas with lots of friends surrounding her.  She will be missed.
