    Sandy was one of the nicest ladies I have ever known and would do anything to help someone out. She will truly be missed. I know that God has a good place waiting on her. I worked with her at Broyhill and Thomasville. She helped trained me to sew cushions. Prayers for the family , you truly lost a jem.
