I am so sorry for your loss!  Sandy was such a wonderful, kind person and will be greatly missed!  I worked with Sandy at Lancaster Laboratories while she was in Environmental Client Services.  She was always so sweet and easy to talk to.  We often discussed her clothing.  She was always so beautifully dressed and I was always envious of her sense of style.  She will be a beautiful angel in heaven.

Dear Carol, Mary and Frank……..
Although many years have passed since we all grew up in Willow Street, it seems like just yesterday.
I am very saddened to have read that God had called Sandy home so soon.  However, I have learnt from past experiences that His ways are not always our ways. But, may you find comfort in knowing that he is holding you all in the palm of his hand and he will comfort you. 
He sees the big picture and we only see the little picture.   
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love in Christ,
Bonnie L. Eckhart (Hess)

I will always remember Sandy and the good times working together at Lancaster Labs.  She care so much about her customers and always wanted to make everyone feel good.  Sandy was so stylish and classy.  I very so sad about her passing.  I will pray that she is peacefully watching over her friends and family from heaven.

Sandy was a great co-worker in the Microbiology lab at LGH, but most of all–a real friend. She had a heart of gold; I think of her often when I spend time with my cat that was generously given to me. I thank God that I had the opportunity to know Sandy. I prayed for all of you throughout her illness and will continue to do so.
With much sadness,
Carol Wagner

I worked with Sandy at Lancaster Labs.  Every time I spoke with her, she always had a warm smile and a kind word. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

Dear Nick and Family
I can not tell you how shocked and saddened I was to learn of the passing Sandy. I had no I idea what life has been like for both of you lately. I deeply regret losing touch when I moved to Florida. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Most Sincerely

I was fortunate to work with Sandy when she was at Lancaster Labs.  She was my client services representative and was always helpful, positive, and a pleasure to work with.  Please accept my deepest sympathies and know that she reached many people with her warmth and her smile.
