I was so sorry to hear Sandra had passed. I have many fond memories of Sandra and Rita and Elizabeth. All three girls were very sweet. Wish I could be there to say goodbye and to visit with the family. You will be in my prayers and thoughts.

I am saddened to learn of Sandra's going home. We grew up together in Orebank and went to Ketron High School. Always a lovely and sweet girl. Safe flight on your journey. We'll meet again one day soon. Prayers for the family. Rest in God's loving arms.

Thank you for watching over me years ago as one of many neighborhood children. Sandra, Patty, and I spent many enjoyable summer days together. May you, Rita, and Elizabeth feel God's comfort as He watches over you in the days to come.

Carry her, Lord, in your arms.
Let her lean against your chest.
Let her listen to Your heart beating and
Feel your breath on her cheek as You whisper,
“I’ve got you my child, I will keep you with me.
I won’t sit you down until you are strong enough to stand.”
Carry her, Lord, in your arms.
Lift her above the pain and sadness she has been carrying.
Lift her high, Lord, so she can breathe deeply of the Heavens.
Lift her so he can see with Your eyes and
Understand why the past shaped her and
Her future is in Your hands.
Lord, as you carry her, tell her how much we love her.
Help her to understand how much we will miss her.
Let her know the times we laughed and prayed
Together were such a blessing and brought us joy.
Lord, let her know this journey is part of Your plan.
We know she is going to be better
Because You are taking her there.
In this, Lord, we can find peace in the valley.
Lord, carry her in Your arms.
Keep her safe, make her whole.
And then plant her feet on solid ground,
So she may sing your praises for eternity.
We thank You, Lord, for letting us share this part of her journey.

A person always remember the friends they spent hours with growing up [particularly cheerleading practice hours], especially the sweetest and nicest ones. Sandra made a cute, smiling addition to Ketron High cheerleaders. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Rita and Liz are precious, too. It is no wonder the girls turned out so well. Estelle Wheatley was a well-rounded imdiviudual setting an example for her daughters to follow. Please know that I am thinking of all of you. I love each of you, and will always love you. God bless you! Jesus Christ is with you at this most difficult time, and He will stay beside you. Think of all the people who are praying for you.

I'm so sorry to hear of Sandra's passing. I have so many good memories growing up on the same street in Orebank and later going to Ketron. Estelle, Rita and Elizabeth you're in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Family of Sandra, deepest sympathy to your family for your recent loss. The Bible indicates that God can help us to endure any challenge we may face (1 Corinthians 1:9). Oftentimes he may use family or friends who share the same pain to assist us. May you draw a measure of comfort from your loved ones and your Creator during this time (1Corinthians 1:3).
