Sandy and I were in the 1965 Cairo graduating class. She and I both went into,Nursing and we talked about what we planned to do in the nursing field. I only saw her a few times since then, and knew she was battling health issues, but I remember her as sweet, kind, caring, with a smile that showed her beautiful heart and soul. She was so good in and for Nursing. I can only imagine those same caring actions toward all My prayers and sympathy to her family and friends as you mourn her loss. May you be Blessed with Gods loving Presence.

I met Sandra when I moved to Cairo my freshman year of High school. Sandra was so kind, willing to help anyone that needed it, and I never saw her be mean or angry with anyone. Our world was very lucky to have had Sandra in it. Our prayers go out to her entire family.

I first met Sandra when we moved to Jacksonville when I was in the fourth grade. We were in a small class of about 8 or 9 through 6th grade at Jacksonville and then moved up to join the 7th grade at Cairo. She was a good friend with a sweet spirit and kind heart, always had a smile, and laughed at my stupid jokes. It is no surprise she followed her mother into the nursing field. I do not remember ever hearing a harsh word from her. Sandra, Terry Newton and I also went to Cairo Baptist Church together and our moms were good friends and in the same extension club. I remember us playing together at many of the club socials. She was an important part of our Class of '65 and the first member we have lost! She was a blessing to me, and I am thankful God put her in my life. Her pain is gone; she has been set free and is now in the arms of Jesus! My heart goes out to Danny, her children and grandchildren who she dearly loved and her sisters, Sue, Ruth, Debbie and Pam. May God give each of you peace and comfort and fill your hearts with precious memories! Bonnie (& Richard) Brockman

When I think of Amy's momma, I reflect on the times she would visit Amy and children in Paris on a frequent basis. She loved her family and it was so visible. On many occasions we played cards, we visited, we laughed and poked fun at one another. I know she struggled with her health over recent years and am sorry for the loss.

Mrs. Lewis is still to this day one of my favorite instructors. As I finish up my ASN degree I continue to think of her and the things she taught me in high school, at the beginning of my nursing degree pursuit. She made a huge impact on her students lives.
