Memories Timeline


  1. Dearest Barbara and family:
    A few years ago I took Sandy with me to the BEACH at MB for a few days. She had not been on a vacation in such a long time and she was like a child at Christmas time! She loved the beach so much, as do I, and would stand on the balcony with her oxygen machine and just gaze out over the ocean with a smile on her face. She kept telling me how close to God she felt at the beach. She was my dearest friend since we moved here. We are from Lakeland originally and lived behind Temple Baptist Church there until the 70’s. God connected us through my prayer ministry: WillPray4U Ministries where Sandy held the position of Advisory Board Member up to the day she died. I know she is in HIS ARMS!

  2. I am so sorry about Sandy.She and I were school mates and loved each other like sisters. We found each other on line a few years ago through Classmates. She was so in hopes of getting to come back to Mena for our 50th class reunion and see old friends and see how our town had changed. I know she loved the Lord with all her heart and she is so happy now I cannot feel sad for her. Just sad for myself for not having seen her in 50 years. But I know she has a smile on her face like we have never seen before. Sandy, I love you and will miss your emails.
    I have no doubt that you are in the presence of the Lord tonight.
